Housefinder Project

Shows your closest address

I built this simple app to show the current address on screen.

It requests the GPS coordinates from the device, and then uses the AddressFinder Reverse Geocode API to lookup the address, which is displayed onscreen.

As the device moves, the displayed address is updated.

The implementation is a simple HTML5 app, and is published at

You can tap on the GPS coordinates to enable debug mode.
