APRS Messenger Android app now released
I've just released a new APRS app for Android phones and tablets so
that radio amateurs can send APRS position beacons and messages from
an Android phone or tablet over a 3G or Wi-Fi link to the APRS-IS
internet system. It can also link by Bluetooth to the new Bluetooth
version of the APRS TNC Digi Tracker.
I've designed it to be simple to use as it only needs the user to
enter a callsign and APRS passcode to get started. The APRS beacon
rate is fixed at 3 minutes and the message decay is set at 31 seconds
so that it can send messages to VHF APRS stations via a two way APRS
Menu options include GPS position information including WGS84 location
for worldwide use and OSGB location including National Grid Reference
for UK users. Another menu option also opens an OpenStreetMap centred
on the GPS fix.
The app can be used on any Android phone or tablet with GPS (and
Bluetooth for use with the Bluetooth version of the Digi Tracker).
The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

There is a small charge for the app to help pay for the development
tool licensing fee and paracetamols!
