A new smartphone application helpfully plots murders, and traffic fatalities, on an interactive map of the local area, showing you at a glance how many people died nearby in the last 18 months, and what killed them. The application is actually a demonstration of instant-app-factory MobileNationHQ, which reckons it took only …
with a public api...
... you could build a realistic zombie game, use google to add real names and you'd surely have a winner.
that truly is one of the most insensitive, but at the same time brilliant ideas going.
Re: with a public api...
Great idea. Of course, xkcd beat you to it... :-)
Did Austin Powers beat xkcd to it?
"Deleted scenes"? I think I saw 'em in the British TV showing. Maybe there were more of them.
Grab your Steam SDKs to Left 4 Dead 2...
...and get to it! This ought to be fun. Most of the game is ready, you only need the zombie names...

I suppose if you're a trainee medium looking to practice the skills it might be a good thing but seems a tad ghoulish otherwise.
Not quite what I expected
From the headline, I was expecting an app that helped you plan the perfect murder. Or give you the option to hire a local assasin through the in-app payment system.
Or for bikers
It might give you a hint about places where you might want to slow down and not drive like a complete twat.
don't those warning signs for bikers, like "to die for", mean it's a good road and you should speed up?
Or for drivers...
... it might give you a hint to actually *LOOK* for bikers instead of pulling out because you don't see any cars and then utter the pathetic cry of "Sorry, Mate, I Didn't See You"...
Maybe Bikers should stop hovering around my blind spot, pick one, overtake or stay behind me so I can see you! I keep thinking your trying to open the passenger door behind me...
...opening the passenger door and forcing a biker (or pedestrian) through its window is called car fu, or the Toyota tripwire, if I remember correctly. Oh yes, here it is...
So.... where is it then?
Are you going to tell us where to find it then? What platforms it runs on? Anything?
Full app name?
Is it called Death App or App of Death? Or something else entirely? What am I meant to do, guess?
"App of Death" already taken
See the boys in Redmond for that one.
where to find ...
It produces a web app too...brrr...I'll stick to Basic4Android
...For the link...Now I have to look into what "mobilenationhq" is all about...having just about bought the idea of Basic4Android...hmmm
The notion of developing an app in a browser freaks me....google App Factory...brrr...
Any chance of some incidental information?
Last time I looked the Reg was a tech site...
So would it be too much to ask to have some basic information, like what PLATFORMS does it support and can we have a LINK to the product/site?
It appears that this mobilenation thing supports iOS and Android only.
See that, Reg hacks? It's called research.
