Finding reachable devices

Postby saiko6996 » Fri Feb 29, 2008 1:49 pm

Hi!

I have just read the manual about how to find friends by gps and locationManager. It´s a cool application. I want to do something similar: I need to know the position and the cellular id of the reachable devices, i mean, i want to know which are the devices in a known area. Does anybody know how can i do this?

thankssss

You wont be able to 'scan' an area and locate all devices, unless you work for a phone carrier.

The only way I can see this working is if a user installs an application which constantly updates a remote server with their location. Then you could search the server for people with-in a certain area.
