Share your location with friends with GeoSMS!

Ever wanted to send someone message and describe exactly WHERE you are? Are you lost in the woods and need help? Are you at great party and want to invite friends? Or do you just need to describe place for a business meeting?

Now with Locify 1.5, it's possible to use new service GeoSMS. It allows you to select friend from your phonebook, type a message and send it. Your friend receives a text message and at the end will be a small location link. When he clicks the link, phone's web browser will open and he will see a map of your current location. So your friend doesn't need to have Locify, GPS etc. Just a simple phone with some kind of internet connection is enough.

So how to add GeoSMS into Locify 1.5?
At the Home screen, hit "Options->Add->Service From List" and pick up "GeoSMS".

Location links are built using free service It's a great new site for creating short location links. It has lot of features like sharing your location on twitter, facebook, downloading location in various formats. If you access the location link in a mobile browser, the page will adapt to your small screen and offers new possibilities (like opening place in Nokia Maps). You should definately give it a try!
