[aprssig] POSITs via Internet?

The best app I have found for iPhone so far as far as flexibility and cost
is PocketPacket[1]. Its a bit long in the tooth and has no SmartBeaconing
but it also doesn't cost a bunch and supports AFSK if you still want to use
RF.

Alternatives are;

Aprs.fi App - Only supports internet beacons but quite nice. No smartbeacon
either.
APRS pro SE - Expensive but has support for radio interfaces and
smartbeacons.

Cheers,
