Using the application, fans can geo-tag their discussions. To protect privacy the application has a “location fuzziness” feature which randomizes where the user exactly is within a one mile radius. The location of fans is also visible on the NIN website where a Google Earth plugin allows to see new posts with their location in real-time. Once Apple will start shipping the version 3.0 of the iPhone software, the NIN application will release a new version that will add support for Google maps and push notification within the application.
This is yet another innovative use of location on the iPhone where location-based features are easy to be implemented thanks to well documented APIs.
