[link] A Deep Dive Into Location

Posted 24 June 2011 - 07:52 AM



I'm a big fan of location-based apps, but not their seemingly-inevitable startup latency.

Whether it's finding a place to eat or searching for the nearest Boris Bike, I find the delay while waiting for the GPS to get a fix, and then for the results list to populate, to be interminable. Once Iím in a venue and ready to get some tips, check-in, or review the food, Iím frequently thwarted by a lack of data connection.
