Flickr Mobile Site For iPhone Is Now Location AwareJune 19th, 2009
If you are running iPhone OS 3.0 and visit Flickr, you have the location aware option “Photos taken nearby” on your Flickr homepage after signed in. Flickr is the first major site that has location aware feature for its mobile site, thanks to the Safari browser in iPhone OS 3.0 which can pass to website that requests for iPhone’s location information.
As usual with all location services in iPhone, Flickr and Safari will prompt you to grant the website access to your location info.
Flickr’s “Photos taken nearby” page will display a map showing your location, and below the map are thumbnails of photos which has geotag info that is closed to you.
