Easily send your geographical position along with a brief message: all happens via Internet by using WAW server.

It is possible to choose the amount of the previously stored positions (yours or of your friends) to retrieve.
WAW application uses internal Web PopUp to show the map (Google Maps).
Google Map markers show information about geographical coordinates and personal message/note.

"Mail" button allows acquiring your current position and sending immediately these and all other previously stored coordinates to the email address you given during activation phase or modified later.

It is possible to send SMS Alarm containing automatically your name, geographical coordinates, date and time in the format accepted from Google Map, so the recipient will be immediately able to display it on Google Maps. Another way to send SMS is by WebSMS (see below).

eMail and SMS do not use native iPhone application but they are sent by using the WAW server. WAW SMS do not affect your iPhone bills.
WAW user has one free SMS to check the reliability of the service (either for SMS alarm or by WebSMS available in WAW environment). Then, if he wants, can buy low cost WAW SMS credit.

WAW application is able to open a Web PopUp window connected to WAW WebSMS site. There you can insert the sender name and the phone number of the recipient. You can modify the message body like you prefer (as default it contents your geographical data and time).

This allows sending to the server the current coordinates and a brief message/note. They can be shared with all or with a single friend. The messages will be displayed both in scrolling text area and on markers of the map. It is possible to use this function to store a short note for any geographical position.
