iSpy: EO apps for your smart phone

EO apps seems to fall into 3 categories: satellite tracking, spatially enabled imaging and GPS.

Do your own weather forecasting with met sat data on your phone.
You can pretend to be satellite and get a satellite real-time view of your position.
Get Accumaps DTM on your phone

Then of course have the phone as remote sensing instrument. The 2D bar code .
scanning that big in asia and starting to catch on here. There are faces and object recognition systems, and also spatially enabled augmented reality

The potential for spatially enabled and EO driven apps seems to be huge. My own suggestion?The laundry day app (should I put the washing out?) Meteosat/Rain radar cloud tracking in relation to your own position!
