Geoflow | Learn Something

#1

I made Geoflow, an app that uses your mobile location to find nearby Wikipedia articles. The Android version is coming soon, the iOS version can be found here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/geoflow-learn-something/id1235949045?mt=8

Would love suggestions! Useful for travelers

Cool Patrick!

Do you have an Expo link so that people could try it in within the Expo client or did you detach/eject?

Congrats on your launch!! Downloading the app now.

Yes, I do! https://expo.io/@patrickdevivo/geoflow have not detached it though am considering doing so to integrate Fabric / Firebase analytics

Have you tried using Amplitude for analytics? That’s already built in and is good. https://docs.expo.io/versions/v16.0.0/sdk/amplitude.html

I like the app a lot. It’s very cool to be able to learn about the stuff in this neighborhood so easily. Thanks for making this.

This is really awesome! Good work.

Small suggestion: A share button of some kind, so I can pester my friends with article links when I find something I think is interesting.

I have been using Amplitude + Segment a bit, still getting to know their platforms a bit. I like the Fabric real-time dashboards.

And thanks for the nice comment! I’m glad you like it and hope to continually improve it

Thanks! I appreciate that. A share button is great idea, but I’m not sure how to integrate it elegantly - the WebBrowser window already has a share view so you can send the link you’re on.

Maybe I’ll add a button in the list view

Update, put together a splash page: https://www.geoflow.io/ for links to the Play Store and App Store

Maybe you could also put the Expo direct link on your website too? That way people with Expo could try it out immediately.

@nikki Thank you! That’s a good idea to add the Expo link - Expo should have a button / image similar to the App Store or Google Play store ones you see everywhere

Excuse my noobness, but is there a way to see this project source with the provided link?

We don’t have a built in link to view source right now so the author would have to include a link to the source in the app (or post one here) for you to see it.

We’re thinking of making it easy to do that but we haven’t yet.
