Re:iPhone, Android, Blackberry, iPad version of Roadfood
Click on nearby restaurant, I get a page with a Roadfood header and a pop up asking to 'share location' ... Now I presume the page is built to share GPS data which is not on my system, so can there be a spot to enter 'zip code' or town & state?
It sounds like your system or your web browser is set NOT to allow websites to know your location. Only apps specifically designed to use GPS use GPS (like map or navigation apps). Most apps or websites get your location based on the mobile phone towers your device is accessing. If you want to use the geolocation feature on this website (or any other), next time the browser asks to share location, say "yes." Or, in the Android (WebKit) browser, to to Menu > More > Settings and scroll down to Enable Location and make sure it is checked. Then come back up and touch Clear Location Access and select OK (just in case you've said "no" to location access on any sites before).
Also, on Android phones go to Settings > Location. Make sure use wireless networks and use GPS satellites are checked. When GPS is active, you see a little satellite dish icon at the top of your screen.
If anybody is having a problem and using an alternative browser (other than the system browser that came pre-installed with the device), it's important to let Stephen know that. For example, Opera has a problem with Geo Location because it routes web traffic through its own servers and compresses web pages for faster loading.
