Connecting dots for digital learning and teaching

Why Are Geospatial Apps So Important?

This week Float Mobile Learning announced the release of Wayfiler, a mobile app that lets people connect files and websites to specific locations in order to find information when and where they need it.

Wayfiler is available for free for iOS. Using the device’s GPS to access a user’s location, you can easily share files and websites by connecting to any Dropbox account. Once a website or file is tagged, all other Wayfiler users will be able to see the file when they are nearby. Use the device’s mapping tools to get directions to the file, share it with friends, attach it to emails and more.

Besides, Float Mobile Learning created a nice infographic about the importance of geolocation in our life covering the history and technology. Enjoy!
