Software Upgrade Alert: LiveTracker v0.2.0 Now Supports Twitter!

May 4, 2009 | By | Add a Comment


The Skylab Tracking Team has just informed us that their LiveTracker for BlackBerry app now supports Twitter. The program is still in beta but it’s also free for noncommercial use. With this program you now have the ability to share your GPS location through Twitter. That’s pretty sweet, free and to tweet it too! For those of you who by chance have not heard of this application, this is what it is.


The application can be installed on any BlackBerry handset and sends out your location data to the Skylab  GPS server. It does background tracking, so if you start it, it will send the GPS to the tracking server. It includes a free tracking server. You can send your location through email, pin, sms, mms, and now Twitter to your location’s map representation. This is great not only for yourself, for friends, family members, and employees. I can see a lot of possibilities with this application. If you would like to download LiveTracker in Beta #3, you can find it here.
