Share hotspots via email

A small, but useful addition to hotspotdot: you can now share hotspots via. email.

Currently only available on the web client, but this and a few other features will soon make their way into the webOS mobile app.

At one point I did consider making a larger social networking component integrated into the site – sharing hotspots with other hotspotdot users – however, I don’t think this would have been very useful, certainly not to me. In many ways hotspotdot is fairly anti-social, focused much more on functionality revolving around maintaining your personal repository of locations rather than the current location of your friends and whether or not they’ve checked-in at some commercial venue; the concept underlying other location services such as Google Latitude, foursquare, and Facebook Places.
