Shutting down...

Unfortunately we've found some fundamental issues with scaling Footprint Feed, due to it's popularity and exacerbated by the timing of "Google App Engine" coming out of beta with a fairly substantial price increase to boost, we can no longer afford to keep Footprint Feed running.

A huge thanks to all those who have supported us and worked with us over the last 18 months and we're sorry we couldn't keep this service running for all of you.

Footprint Feed now supports Latitude check-ins

With Google Latitude now supporting check-ins on the Latitude iPhone and Android apps we thought it would be a nice feature to support on Footprint Feed.  You can now post your Latitude check-ins to all your favourite feeds including Facebook and Twitter.  You need to make sure you've enabled Buzz on Footprint Feed first.

As always we'd love your feedback so let us know what you think.

Improvements to Movement Feeds

To avoid unimportant and inaccurate messages being sent to your colleagues and friends we have just introduced two new changes to Footprint Feed's movement messaging system:

  • Location certainty. You can now specify a 'certainty' interval for your location. You can think of this interval as a frame travelling through time. As long as all the locations recorded within that frame are in the same place then we can be pretty certain that you are accurately in that location! Increasing the value of the certainty you can minimize messages that are produced en route to your destination when travelling. You can also reduce the risk that a message will be sent when Google Latitude occasionally places you on the other side of the world!

  • Stricter movement threshold. Under the covers of Footprint Feed we calculate the chance that you have moved based on the accuracy of the location coming in from Google Latitude. We have observed that the accuracy can be a little optimistic. Unfortunately you might have noticed that sometimes movements are triggered when you haven't moved. We have changed our algorithm in such a way that those false positives are much less likely now. 

We hope that these changes improve your experience of the service, as always feedback is more than welcome!

The Footprint Feed Team!
