SendLocation is small utility for those who need an application that sends your location to your own server and script. It's dead simple: just provide the server and script and this app will do the rest.

SendLocation supports background updating. The application doesn't even need to be open to get location updates. However when SendLocation is closed or in background it detects only "significant" location changes (a new feature in iOS 4). These changes are typically occuring when changing cell in your mobile network.

By creating your own script you can ..
- publish your location in your own webpage
- make your own "locate my iPhone" service
- send email to your friend when you're nearby
.. use this information for any nice idea that pops in to your mind!

The HTTP GET-method is in following format:


Where you must provide the "http://yourserver.com/yourscript.php" part to application settings.

Speed is your current speed in meters per second (calculated by GPS points) and heading is the course youre travelling towards (also calculated from GPS).

Notice: when this app is at foreground it can send your location in 5 second intervals. This might stress some servers or cause lots of traffic to your server. Please monitor the usage!


Versie 2.8

Some users are reporting frequent updates even if the switch isn't toggled on. This version should fix this issue. Please contact me if you have any problems through the support web page.

Simple and effective app

In my search to create a tracking page on our website I searched for a simple app that could send the location directly to our server and also worked in background.
SendLocation is exactly what I needed.
Background updating is still not 100% clear to me. Sometimes it sends only when I move from one cell to another (+/-15km) with no speed and heading, sometimes it sends each 10 seconds all info (with the app still closed)
One feature request, a parameter that determines how often in a minute the app sends the data.

Thanks for the feedback. The background updating isn't too clear for developers either since it's all based on Apple's implementation.

It's broken

It always worked. But since the last update, locations aren't send anymore from the background. Sad...

Te beperkt

Doet wat het moet doen; doorsturen van locatie, snelheid en richting. Ben je handig met PHP dan zijn de praktische mogelijkheden onbeperkt. Enige wat echt een ontbrekende "must" is, is de mogelijkheid om zelf de interval te bepalen waarin de app de gegevens verstuurd. Iedere 5 seconden is in veel gevallen echt overkill.

Deze app kan je locatie gebruiken zelfs als de app niet geopend is. Hierdoor kan de batterij sneller leegraken.
