Hello,
You could try out something I'm testing
http://appshed.com/appbuilder/24702

This is optimised for mobile / tablets so may look odd on a PC screen.

It is based on HTML5 so is 'multi platform'. The 'app' is pretty simple
but the best bit is a map that shows ancient sites centred on your
current location (if you answer 'yes' to the 'share location'
question.)

It also shows our latest news and images, with links to more details on
our mobile site.

To save typing it in I have posted one of those 3D barcode thingy
readers on the link below here so load this page and scan it with your
phone camera

http://www.megalithic.co.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=Forum&file=viewtopic&topic=5789&forum=5

We also have a Windows phone app if anyone has one of these?
