    Post location based application

    Hi , i am new to application development , i have a mobile handset nokia xpress 5800 , as i know it support s60 5th edition and i am a developer from background of using vb.net .

    so i am looking for help here where i can find or how i can develop a application where i want to display information based on the location , say for example if i am in New York , based on the location i move i want to display latest hotel or companies stored either in map data file or in the local sql-lite database

    how can i develop and in which language i can , i see python seems to be more better and interactive but i am a vb.net developer so is there any good IDE which has Visual studio like development environment.

    or is there any way i can develop , kindly guide.

    with regards

    Pythos is easier that is true but with Symbian C++ or Qt will give you more control on the API.
    You could check this page, if interested in C++

    When you have SDK installed then you can use location example from the SDK
