WHERE location-based GPS app coming to Pre

Palm Pre on Where.com

Well looky there, somebody actually came out and said they’re going to make an app for webOS. It’s WHERE, a company that specializes in location-based services that tie into your Pre’s GPS chip and gives you information about the people and stuff around you.

WHERE in the App Catalog Not only will they be able to do mapping by integrating with Google Maps, but WHERE’s services will give you local weather, news, entertainment, restaurant reviews, gas prices, access to the Yellow Pages, and even hooks into Buddy Beacon to tell you where your other friends with Buddy Beacon are hanging out. And the WHERE app isn’t just coming - it's already here and was sighted in Palm’s quick demo today of the App Catalog at D7 (see right).

Thanks to Mahootzki for the tip!
