World News:  uLocate launches WHERE, the first platform for mobile GPS widgets

uLocate Communications has announced that WHERE, the first mobile GPS widget platform for rapid development and publishing of location-enabled wireless content and applications, is available on select Sprint phones.

The launch of WHERE and the WHERE Developer Program on the Sprint network enables content owners to quickly develop wireless applications and publish them directly onto the handset.

Consumers can add WHERE Widgets to WHERE handset applications by choosing from menus on the handset, or by dragging and dropping them from the Where.com website to their phone.

For the first time, the same technology that underpins Helio Buddy Beacon and MapQuest Find Me is available for free to developers with the WHERE Developer Program.

The WHERE Developer Program makes the industry’s first GPS-enabled widget platform available to third party content owners, providing the ability to create and publish WHERE Widgets.

The WHERE Developer Program uses the simple yet powerful WHERE mark-up language and scripting to allow developers to write in languages such as PHP, Ruby, etc. to create their application on J2ME and BREW handsets.
