Hi guys, 

I have had a look around and I cannot see anything on there regarding app creation, so I thought I would post. 

I'm looking at trying to create an application for android initially, then if I can get that working more or less how I want it to, will get into the iPhone store and create the app there too. Initially though, I want the application to allow users to join what we're going to call a group, then within that group, using cellular data and the inbuilt GPS that most phones have these days, they can find where the other people in that group are. This will not work for long distances, I'm thinking for more or less 10km max. 

How would I be best to go about creating that? I have had a quick look around the various "web-builders" and none of them seem to offer that functionality. 

I have no clue with where to begin, any light you can shine about where I should be headed is going to be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks Guys

Easiest way to get into Android programming is using basic4Android, get the trial and see if it suits.http://www.basic4ppc.com

Otherwise ADT is free but requires Java knowledge.
