Hey everyone, I want to apologize about the recent outages on websmithing.com. I was installing an ssl certificate so that I could serve https and installing it was a bit of a challenge.
Developers please note that this website is now using https and all test urls need to be changed on the phone or they won’t work.
Search for this string in the phone source code.
I was very happy to learn that GpsTracker was one of the top 9 downloaded projects on Sourceforge and was nominated for “Project of the Month”.
If you have checked out the project and like it, would you please log into Sourceforge and vote for GpsTracker:

Thank you very much!
First off, I’m sorry that you lost your cell phone. That is a bummer. At this point, I’m sure you have retraced your steps and have tried calling your cell phone to see if someone kind hears it and picks it up. You can call your cell phone from your computer using Google voice if you do not have access to another phone:
There are 2 parts to the gps tracker application. The server and the clients. The server part needs to be installed on a public web server. It can be installed on a local machine and clients can be tested over wifi so strictly speaking, you do not need a public facing web server but for our purposes, we will assume you have one. There are 2 different servers, one is for asp.net and sql server and the other one is for php and mysql. You do not need to install both. How do you choose which one to use?
I’m happy to report that version 3 of GpsTracker has shipped. This is a major change and the application now supports tracking of android, ios, windows phone and java me/j2me cell phones using google maps. What the application does is track cell phones periodically using gps, wifi and/or cell towers. It allows you to track a phone every minute or every 5 minutes or whatever you want and display it on a google map. You can view the tracking in real time or view previously saved routes.
Making progress. The windows phone cell phone tracker is now complete and is fully operational with the test website on websmithing. You can find the source code here on github:
I just wanted to let people know that I have been working on the google maps gps tracker for android and iphone. This will allow people to track their android or iphone and store routes. This can be very helpful for companies that need to track employees and see where an employee has been or […]
I’ve been creating different smoothies and so far this one is my favorite. There is no taste of spinach! Try to use all organic products if you can. This makes two servings.
3 cups organic baby spinach
1 cup frozen berries (mixed strawberry, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries), add more to sweeten
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 cup organic coconut milk (one brand is called Silk, in the dairy section. it has no dairy in it but it comes in the same kind of container as the dairy milk.)
I was recently working on a project for a client and needed to sync up a catalog app on an iphone with data and images on the internet. The client wanted to be able to update the catalog on the internet and then have the iphone app automatically sync up. I’ve put the project on […]
Recently, I needed to update an activity in Android with data I gathered from a background Service. I couldn’t find any decent examples on the web or StackOverflow, so I decided to put one together. I really like when someone has a complete working sample, so I will provide that as well you can download […]
