I went to add the location of the new F&W cafe this morning, and i was a bit puzzled to see that the old one wasn't on there! Now there is no way i would have missed that, i remember putting it on as one of the first places, i also noticed that monmouth appeared to have only recently been added, again, i wouldn't have missed them off!
I am worried that someone has been deleting entries, can people just have a quick look and see if anythings missing, I thought Gwilym's coffee cart used to have several locations listed for time of day etc.. too.

I may end up having to make this available to only certain people, and then let each new collaborator invite new ones, what about that? I was really hoping to keep this open, but i knew it might only last so long

I remember F&W and Gwilym's multiple locations being on there ES, so it does look as though someone has messed about with it. Disappointing to say the least :(

That's so bad. How petty do you have to be to do that. Grr.

if anyone notices anything else removed let me know, i'm hoping its somebody getting a little confused and just deleting places by accident.. but if anything else is manipulated i will close off any collaboration and only share it with those on this board, which would be a pity

It's been a long time coming but I've started releasing test of my iPhone app into the wild. Basic for now, but does what we need, coffee locations on iPhone. It's pulling them from exilecoffee.com at the moment which has a clone of the map info as of last week, I couldn't figure out how to get it to pull the live info from the google map though, but maybe I will.


Anyone want in on the test?

Thanks guys. It'll work on any iPhone or Touch Jailbroken or not. But as it's still a beta release its not in the App Store yet. If you want to give it a try DM me, or email, your UDID and email address and I'll add you to my devel account and email you the application. It's perfectly legit this way too btw!

Yes, you can find out how far you are, just like any other marker in the Maps app, there's still a LOT to do to it and once iPhone 3.0 is released it lets me do new things by embedding the map and using custom markers etc.

If you want to try it, here are instructions from Apple to get the UDID

You can also find out your device’s UDID using iTunes 7.7. or later. To do this, connect your device to your Mac and launch iTunes. In iTunes, select your device in the ‘Devices’ section and navigate to the Summary tab. Click on the Serial Number label to reveal the Identifier field and the 40 character UDID. Press Command+C to copy the UDID to your clipboard.

I just added Indigo Cafe in Cambridge. Not worth a detour but if you're in Cambridge it beats the chains...

What would people think about having a three star rating for each of these? Perhaps similar to Michelin's three star guide:

*** - worth a visit/pilgrimage
** - worth a detour
* - if your in the area/better than the chains
