Geopedia = iPhone + Locative Wikipedia

Wednesday, 26 March 2008

2008-03-26_iphonefaq_com_geopedia_small.pngiPhoneFAQ about the release of a third party software for the iPhone on 19 March: “GeoPedia takes advantage of geographic positioning functionality, like those introduced in iPhone firmware 1.1.3, and provides iPhone owners with a Wikipedia feed customized to their current location.”

“The usefulness of GeoPedia to traveling iPhone owners (which we all are, in a sense) is easy to imagine. Have some time to kill after a business meeting in an unfamiliar city? Let GeoPedia and Wikipedia provide some fodder that might lead to some interesting excursions. Exactly how well GeoPedia works is yet to be seen, but the idea is a good one, and so far users are reporting some pretty impressive results.”
