Someone mentioned fireeagle early on ... for tracker-only phone apps, I
would think this is the way to go - there are lots of fireeagle updaters,
for dealing with all the various phone platforms, but what's missing is
a FE app that will take updates and feed them to APRS-IS. This should
be pretty easy to write, but would need a server home somewhere.
As for an Android mapping client ... there's a mechanism for "embedding"
Google Maps pages into Android apps. It might be really interesting to
see if the APRS.FI client could be used this way, rather than trying
to reinvent all the good work that has been done there!
Remember, laziness is a virtue for programmers!
