His favourite feature – Take Me Home, I’m Drunk – is most likely to be used after students have taken advice on the best pubs in the area.
It sends a message to a local taxi firm, detailing the address where the student can be found and their home address.
Other features include a buddy list that can pinpoint a friend’s exact geographical location and translation services for foreign students.
Interesting example of location aware services. Seriously, this is exactly the kind of service I would like to have now that phones are supposed to have E911 sensing built in. Maybe also a “find the nearest gas station” feature, or “where’s a public bathroom?”
