Construct 2 and GPS Usage Question

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jun 07, 2013 8:31 pm

hi there,

I was just wondering if anyone knows if C2 can access the GPS / location of a mobile device. Additionally GPS access as an App is another question. Basically can GPS data be accessed by C2? I did some digging around here and didn't see any real conversation about the subject.

I know that mobile browsers can do it (like using google maps through browser) but i'm not sure how practical it is either. For example if when the phone is turned off, would this kill any realtime data collection..

Thanks!
Caleb

Coincidentally, the next build will have a Geolocation plugin. So you'll be able to get GPS data from that! It's got very broad support, including on mobile.

Hi Ashley,

Do you know when the build with the GPS plugin is scheduled to be released?

Thanks
