Moveable History (Tropo App) Makes Mashup of the Day!

Posted on December 29, 2010 by Adam Kalsey

Congratulations are in order for our friend Ted Gilchrist for his new Tropo-powered application making ProgrammableWeb’s Mashup of the Day!

Looks like Ted hit the trifecta on this application using APIs from Tropo, Google Latitude, and Wikipedia! You can call the Moveable History demo at (857) 239-0152!

Moveable History will begin reading from the Wikipedia page of the closest historic location to our John Paul Jones avatar. Each time you press a key on you phone, you will hear about the next-closest location, in ever widening circles.

This is all driven by Google Latitude. John Paul Jones has signed up, and he’s currently located in downtown Portsmouth, NH.

If you would like to have Moveable History track your location, wherever you or your personal avatar roams in the continental United States, sign up here.

Moveable History uses state-of-the-art OAuth, with no passwords involved. You can revoke authorization at any time.
