Last week I created my 1st iPhone App on my own personal time. Since location and maps is always on my mind, this idea came to my mind that wouldn’t it be nice if your hand held device would be able to display the latest news from your current location (wherever in the world you may be??).

So I went about creating this iPhone App. Its a very simple App. It use Core Location Framework to get the location information (latitude/longitude). Once you have the coordinates then we make a call to MKReverseGeoCoder delegate methods to get the city state name. Once you have the city, state name then you build the URL to Google News dynamically and get the latest news.

So here’s what it looks like on my iPhone: (captured when driving thru Novi, MI)
