Hello,


 Location Based Service (Fatch Lat,Lon) and Users current Location ?and how to connect with Playbook from our application? there are suppositions about the gps being there or not. What works for sure for the moment is the location based on the wifi. There are api's to connect.

 

 E-mail is support or not when it synchroniza with Blackberry smartphone?

Email is via the bridge for the moment, there are no bridge API's atm.

 

 From my application i want to send E-mail to different user so is it possible to send e-mail from our  application?

See above

 

 Call Feasibility support ?

Not sure to understand. You can't call from your app atm.

 

 SOAP is support or not in Playnook?

I think that with Flex you can, but not sure

SOAP:

it should be possible. i can recommend the following video as a starter: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/adc-presents/build-a-flex-application-that-connects-to-a-soap-web-service/

but it depends on what you are going to do with SOAP ...

Re: E-Mail,Geo Location in Playbook

an API for wifi based location services? can you expand on that one? All I know is of the GPS Geolocation flash API which should work if you have a release device. Wifi, as far as I know, only works as IP to location, W3C or google gears which I have yet to test again, but last time I checked it wasn't working yet, planned to work but hasn't been finished yet.

Re: E-Mail,Geo Location in Playbook

hi

i search it on the forum and i am very much confused whether GEO Location is supported or not in the playbook ?

some post said it does not have GPS functionality and some post said that it have functionality so can any one give clear idea about this topic.

 

My app need GPS location and user location and Direction on the Map so is it possible using the Adobe AIR Geolocation API ?

 

if i have to bridge E-mail from my app to BB smart phone then how can i do this any API is available or not?

 

 

hope for positive response,

Megha

For your question on whether or not the playbook has GPS functionality, it does according to Mark's post in this thread. This post was buried beneath all of the speculations and questions. 

Hope it helps.:smileyhappy:
