musicGPS captures the soundtrack of your life™ - wherever you go
Use musicGPS to: play music on your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch; keep track of what you listened to, where and when; add notes and pictures to those musical memories; give your Facebook status a "rich" update...
The more you use musicGPS when you're listening to music, the stronger the musical memories you'll be able to build up and go back to - long after you've forgotten where you were and what you were doing!
Open musicGPS to browse and zoom in and out of your personal listening timeline – discover what it was that caught your ear during a journey; see a map of where you listened to a particular song; and add a note-to-self or photo.

musicGPS is now available for the iPhone family* free from the iPhone App Store.
what's new in version 2.0
Synchronization - your timeline data can now be stored on the musicDNA backend server and synchronized in real-time as you go, as well as manually at any time; this enables full back-up and restore functionality as well as preparing the ground for sharing timelines with friends and family (synchronization requires a free musicDNA account - signup and privacy guidelines are at www.musicdna.info).
Facebook Status Updates (beta) - once you're synced up with a free musicDNA account you can enable status updates here: while you're listening to a track in musicGPS, enter the code @facebook: (or @f: for short) on the textnote screen, followed by the text of what you want to appear in your status update - within a couple of minutes your status update should appear on Facebook...
Dual Navigation Mode - you can now toggle between
Sequential and Calendar modes allowing easy navigation at different zoom levels
and one-step unpacking of your stacked listening events.
Migration from version
1.0.x to version 2.0 includes a process for a one-time upload and conversion of
your existing event datastore, so that all the old events from your timeline are
saved as well as the new ones.
Calendar Mode Update - the start and end dates of
the timeline are now displayed using much more helpful dates / times which vary
depending on the current zoom level.
View modes - based on user feedback, this
has been reversed so that flicking up now takes you through Album Art - Map
Tiles - Text Notes - Snapshots.
Hints screen - "How to use musicGPS" now starts
with a very quick Quick Start Guide; the tips and hints have been expanded and
rearranged, and are now live - so that user feedback can be incorporated.
*Full location and snapshot functionality is available on the iPhone only, as the iPod touch does not have the iPhone's GPS capabilities or a camera.
