This is a Google Maps SDK Sample with RubyMotion authored on Git by Watson 1978. Instructions are available to configure an API key. Developers should note that Google Maps SDK has only armv7 binary. That is why a configuration to build armv7 binary on a Rakefile is required. Another consideration is bridge support. A link is available to avoid a bug and modify a file manually. While keeping in mind these details, Watson 1978 also uploaded update resources for Google Maps SDK 1.2.2. This SDK sample with Ruby Motion can add a different perspective to application development related to mapping, location, and localization.

Shoudio is an amusing iOS application made to tag places with audio snippets. These can be anything a user imagines, and a lot of fun could be had with this. For example, integrating this into Geocaching could be a lot of fun, allowing things like audio hints to help Geocachers find the cache. However, the developers of Shoudio didn't want it limited to just one platform, so they released a Shoudio API to allow clients for other platforms, and fun mashups.
Mashup games are always fun. Those built upon FourSquare have an extra layer of enjoyment, because they're tied to the real world. In the case of City Warfare, players use various water weaponry to soak other FourSquare users.
