Share Location on iOS

Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

I'm often annoyed that I can't share my location universally from my mobile device. It seems ridiculous but you can't generate a thing on an iOS device that universally translates to Android or some other user's (maps) preferences.

Luckily Drafts 4 has a some new tags to read the geo coordinates.

Execute the action, the current draft will not be affected, and your current raw latitude and longitude coordinates are on the clipboard. You can send this to anyone and they can just paste the coordinates into their maps app, and they know where you are. Demo with Google Maps and Apple Maps:

This action has one clipboard action with the following content:

[[latitude]],[[longitude]]

Import into Drafts 4.
