iPhone App

Anybody know if there is a Ragbrain 2011 iPhone app under development?  Seems like something with mapping, event and social community functions would be a great fit for such a big event.

A beer tent, I hope!

65 days, did I mention I cannot wait?

Papa T said: There will be Ragbrai apps.  There will be accidents by riders distracted by their phones.

There will be riders who do none of these things.  They are probably safer.

It’s a big tent!

You never know who you will see in a big tent.

A premium stop will have burgers, music, cold beer, chairs, shade (the tent), Kybos and best of all Papa T.

It might  show where various charter services are located for camping. Depending on the charter, paper signs can be sketchy. There are several GPS based apps that can be used instead of a regular computer. Towns could advertise information and use GPS to find locations for dinner. Something semi-sophisticated could track shuttle bus positions so you know the wait. There really is a lot of potential and a lot that you can already do.

This would be useful.  It could even lead me to my favorite, a beef and noodle dinner!!
