On its own, Alocola is a simple application that uses the iPhone’s location-services to present your position, altitude, speed and course. When paired with a website, Alocola enables the website to be “location aware.”

Alocola is a “web helper” application that lets users provide their location information when websites ask for it.

Alocola works with Safari, the built-in web browser. With Alocola, web developers don’t need to create their own iPhone app. Users simply browse in Safari the way they normally would; when a site asks for location information Alocola pops up, asks permission to give the location to the site, returns to Safari and passes the location along as part of the URL.
