Does AddressFinder work with mobile phone applications?
Yes. One of the many features of AddressFinder is its low latency. We have worked hard to make the service as snappy as possible, including ensuring it is hosted in New Zealand to minimise network latency for New Zealand users. Low latency also helps when AddressFinder is used in mobile applications.
In addition, the AddressFinder Address Autocomplete Widget is very efficient and works well in a mobile context. We have implemented AddressFinder successfully on a number of mobile apps and websites. Generally the data returned by AddressFinder is quite small, so goes well over higher latency mobile networks. The AddressFinder website is mobile friendly, so give it a go.
This JourneyPlanner app uses AddressFinder + 3rd party data source - it is an HTML5/PhoneGap App.
