buddypress mobile, like grindr?

    @modemlooper do you know of a plugin which lets users enter their location and see which users are nearby? Preferably one that works with BuddyPress Mobile?

    If so, would it let them know of nearby users based on iPhone or Android gps coords or the city/state they enter to a plugin or field of buddypress? The iPhone app Grindr comes to mind, though it is an app not a wordpress plugin.

    Thanks

    Safari browser can use the gps API on an iPhone, I’m not sure about Android. You could create code that attaches user meta to a logged in user and save the gps coordinates then filter members list by distance.

    There are a couple location plugins but those are address based in which you enter address into profile fields. They do not update your current info.

    So yes it’s doable but no plugin currently exists.

    Thank you. I’ll look into this. If I don’t know how this can be done, I have a developer in mind.
