Our mobile mashup Geo chat has been updated. HTML5 mobile web application lets you chat with other people in the proximity. It is anonymous chat, you do not need a special account. It is just a text chat with people nearby (e.g., in the same café, in traffic jam, etc.) Check out it from the iPhone, Android, or any HTML5 browser.
(it is a mobile site).
You can copy link right to your phone with QR-code above. Or use the following short URL http://bit.ly/gCbzm3.
You can use this chat in your own mobile web applications. The basic URL accepts the following optional parameters:
lat - latitude of the place
lng - longitude of the place
for example: Palo Alto, University Avenue, Starbucks
There is the similar mobile mashup City chat - the dialogues there are connected to some place from Foursquare. Geo chat is almost the same, but implemented for any geo place without the connection to some predefined place
Technically, it is a web mashup that uses chat engine from Coldbeans.
