LocaNote LogoAbout a week ago I launched a new web service with a few friends from university. It’s called LocaNote. LocaNote is a cloud service that stores personal notes online. What’s special about LocaNote is that every note has a geographical location attached to it. Using this information LocaNote will show you only notes that are relevant to your current position. And since it is a cloud service you can take your notes with you on a mobile device. An iPhone App is in development right now and should be available on the App Store within the next few weeks. The built-in GPS receiver in the iPhone makes it the perfect mobile device for LocaNote. It will automatically use it’s current GPS-location to find notes that are really close to your actual position. Also, when you create a new note it will be placed on your current location.

The website and API is done in Ruby on Rails and the web frontend makes heavy use of the recently released jQuery 1.4.

I just realised that Safari 3 has problems with the wordpress WYSIWYG editor (or tinyMCE and some web2.0 javascript in general).

Switching between Visual and Code view in the editor make the editor lose the format sometimes.

Also Web 2.0 file uploads (usually where you can upload more than one file at the time) don’t work probably with Safari 3. For example the flickr upload.

I hope this will get fixed soon. Don’t want to switch browsers for blogging every time.
