Plazes Builds an iPhone Plazer

For the past few days, I’ve been buried under a flurry of press releases coming out of O’Reilly’s Where 2.0 conference, currently under way just south of San Francisco. Many of the ideas/apps/startups are boring, a few are interesting and a couple are, well, pretty good. I’ll write about them after I’ve had a chance to use them.

Meanwhile, one app that looks particularly interesting is the iPhone Plazer, from London-based social mapping startup Plazes, a company whose products I occasionally use. The app, downloaded to the iPhone, will take coordinates from the “location library” and automatically “plaze” you, which is just a company-branded way of saying that it will geo-tag your location via the mobile device. So far, Plazer software has been available only on PCs and Mac.

Founder Felix Peterson has promised an early preview of the app once the iPhone opens up. I will update the post later; in the meantime, check out the screenshots.
