GyPSii Releases iPhone-Native Web Site

A geotagging-based social networking site, GyPSii, says it has developed a new iPhone version of its mobile web client. The site is used to upload and share points of interest along with pictures, video and text; the two can in fact be combined, creating what the company dubs an online "life history." The iPhone client uses an optimized interface, able to display all relevant information at once for a particular person or place. Location-based search has been improved with new categories, and users can get integrated directions from the mapping interface, pointing to or from specific people and places.

The GyPSii development team says it is also planning a native iPhone client, though a release date is dependent on the announcements Apple makes later today at its SDK event. This separate version of GyPSii will provide "seamless access" for users of Apple products, the company claims.
