GPS Widget

I just released my new app “GPS Widget” on the Android Market.

This widget simply shows your current location in numbers. Latitude and Longitude are received from the GPS location provider or from the network location provider if GPS is not available.

The altitude is queried from open MapQuest API which yields in a more accurate result than receiving the altitude by GPS. So this widget is also interesting for hiking.

I have implemented TapJoy to enable the user to donate indirectly. TapJoy is an ad-network like AdMob or InMobi. The difference to these networks is that with TapJoy it is allowed to directly ask the user to take action while an action is either downloading an other app, watching a video or something similar. After completing this action the user gets points as a reward (e.g. resources like gold in a game). In my case the user gets some “Good Karma Points”.

You can download the free widget here.
