Can DPS apps use onboard devices

Oct 11, 2012 4:18 PM

Is it possible for a DPS generated 'app' to use the onboard devices such as GPS, camera, and also have the ability to fill in forms and send via email direct from the app?

    To do fill-in forms you have to create HTML and embed it in a web overlay. To send e-mail you either create a mailto: hyperlink (which will open in the device's e-mail client) or again do an HTML page that uses your own back-end system to process the info and send the e-mail.


    The camera is not accessible. GPS may be via HTML and JavaScript, but I'll be honest, I can't remember. Someone else likely knows.
