Location Based App

Location Based App

  

Hello, I want to creat an app that depends on the users location. I want users to enter information into the app, then that information should be posted on a different screen within the app. I want the app to filter who sees what based on the current location of the user. So if I post something while i am in LA, only people in LA should be able to see my post, and i should be able to see what others in LA have posted today. Anybody have any ideas on how to implement this? Im new to outsystems so anyone who can point me in the right direction would be a big help. 

If you're new you should look into existing components.

Your service can automatically find the coordinates of the event based on the address

Your app needs to get the coordinates of the person.

Then you make a service to filter events in a nearby area (not by city name) organized by distance.

And maybe present them in a map

When I tried to download the the plugins but I couldn't, I might have but it seems like I didn't have access to the extension. Is there a way I can get around this? I got the similar outcome for GeoCoding as well. 


Have you tried opening the extension or installing it?
