[aprssig] iPhone APRS app?

Actually, I should have mentioned that APRS-IS is sufficient, just not 
restricted to the aprs.fi web site.

And yes, I have a FreedomPop phone with APRSISMO running on it that I 
can also drop into someone's vehicle for the event.  I'm just looking to 
increase the APRS penetration in our club as well as meeting the need 
for this event.

The really hard part is the op that has a Blackberry 10.  It's sort-of 
Android, but requires special application builds and signing to install 
anything on it.

up-and-coming Android client that includes TH-D74 Bluetooth connectivity).
