Please, only thoseb with Skills or Ideas should Respond I As a community, let's see if we can't just build an app. I am thinking about creating an app that will help people locate their iPods when they are Lost or Stolen. This is what I am Thinking so far. Before I ever try to get started, I want to know if there is interest in creating a community application. We will need the help of Native iDevice Developers as well as Web Site Coders. I can host the Web Site, or you can, I don't really care, but I do have the Bandwidth. Application: Missing iPod Locater Running The Application Launching Via a LaunchDaemon ensures that the app is running at any time that the iPod is on, making disabling not very likely if the Careless Owner or Thief would turn it off. The App will also have a GUI that will control settings as well as initial set up. Web SetUp The End User will log into a Web Site and register for a free account. This will set up in the DataBase an iPod KEY. The user will be required to enter their Serial Number, and the key will be tied to that number. The Site will also email the user their KEY, encrypted, of course. iPod Set Up The End User will then open up the GUi for our app and will be prompted to enter their User Name and password. Upon receiving the correct information, and verifying the Serial Number, the app will download and encrypt the KEY. After Initial SetUp, the app will then ask the User if they want to Hide the Settings/SetUp GUI. It is recommended. If 'YES' is selected, the App will modify the N45AP.plist file to automatically hide itself, no relying on Customize or the User's Editing ability. The End User has nothing left to do except to lose their iPod. App running. Every (User Defined Number) of minutes. the App will reach out for the "Emergecy Flag." Once Lost The End User logs into the Web Site and requests the Emergency Signal be Sent To The iPod. This sets the Emergency Flag. The App, once sensing the Energency Flag has been set, begins to triangulate its position in the background. There should be minimal to no interference with the Theif's Usage. Triangulation There are aps for the computer that enables the computer to come up with a semi precise location based on WiFi alone. We need to figure out how and have our app do precisely this when the Emergency Flag is set. The App will upload this information into out DataBase and the locations should be viewable to the End User via Google Maps.
