Synchronizing Google Voice With Your Location: Google Voice Locations v0.1
According to the folks over at Lifehacker, Smith was able to synchronize his Google Voice ringing schedule with his GPS Location with little more than a Google Voice account, a web server, and the Locale Android App. Essentially Smith created a mobile service that knows where you are and knows what phone to ring. For instance when your in your house, your home phone will ring, instead of your cell. For those without a server (including myself) this seemed a little much. However, now, with the release of Google Voice Locations v0.1, Android fans have much easier solution.
Overall, Google Voice Locations v0.1 is a very simple and easy to use Android app. After getting, it I loaded it up on my Nexus One and entered what phones to ring when I am located in a certain areas. This was extremely easy and straightforward. Honestly, that was pretty much it. The app runs in the background, using the cell towers to determine your location. (GPS will be included in a future update). Unfortunately it is only v0.1 at this time, but even so, it worked great for me! Honestly, I can really see Google incorporating something like this into their own Google Voice service sometime in the future.
Load it up! Let Android Guys know what you think! P.S. This does not work on Android 1.5. Sorry!
