GeoMapLookup for iPhone is Apple.com’s Staff Pick

GeoMapLookup for iPhone Icon

My updated GeoMapLookup — a website to geolocate a host, domain or IP address with Google Maps integration — now sports a newly created iPhone and iPod touch version which was chosen as Apple.com’s Staff Pick and featured web app for February 26th 2008.

GeoMapLookup is a web app to display information about the geographical location of your current IP address or any hostname or IP you enter. It provides a link to show the location using the native Maps application on your iPhone or iPod touch.

You can also visit GeoMapLookup on your Mac or PC to get a version with an integrated Google Map or from your iPhone or iPod touch to get the mobile version.

    I heared a lot of bad thing about apple safari, but it seem they are improving. The geomap is realy usefull, I like it.

    That little application is pretty cool I must say. I wonder if it could be used for lets say, nefarious purposes! Just wandering out loud!

    Don’t worry! It’s too inaccurate :-)
    You’re lucky when the correct city is displayed.

    I would have to agree with everyone that it is a GREAT tool and would love it on to use it. But uhh according to Daniel it isn’t that accurate =[. I’m going to get this for my iphone and test it on places i know and see if it is accurate I’ll get back at you guys. Thanks for the post now I can try a new tool and hopefully it works decently! (crosses fingers)

    Bug with iPhone 3G 2.1: opening the map shows my location in the ocean south of Ghana. After doing some research I discovered that GeoMapLookup should be calling the Maps application with “loc:” in front of the coordinates.

    Thanks for the info Bob! I’ve replaced the q= in the URL with ll= so Maps centers on the location. As the coordinates aren’t that accurate in the first place displaying the region seemed like the best choice.
