Hello all!  I created an Android app to help me with a project (a reverse geocaching box).  Basically I had a Bluetooth shield but nothing with GPS.  I also wasn't sure if the Arduino could handle the math involved with calculating geographic distances.  But I knew my Android phone could.  So I created "Open Location" for my own purposes.  You enter a desired lat/lon and radius.  When you get within the radius of the lat/lon coordinates I simply send a different character over Bluetooth serial to my Arduino device.  More detail on the site, but looking for feedback on the app.  Realize this my first Android app and I am mostly a hardware guy so the app ain't pretty!  Thanks!  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_mbparks.OpenLocation2

Basically looking to see if this "proof of concept" app could be rewritten to provide real value.
