[aprssig] PocketPacket?

I downloaded PocketPacket to my iPhone today.

It's a good looking "app" which can download live APRS information local 
to you (default 500 km radius) from the APRS-IS displaying it on a 
Google Maps background and also allows "Audio-in decoding" from a 2m 
receiver connected to the iPhone.

Very impressive, I suppose all that's missing is the function to upload 
APRS information to the APRS-IS as an Igate.

I've not tried the audio decode facility yet, I need to make a cable.
