"The new GyPSii features further extend its position as the mobile lifestyle application that's turning the mobile phone into a personal digital life recorder." Adding to this comment, he stated, "Only this week a GyPSii member, living in China, recorded in real-time the tragic earthquake in Chengdu and shared it with the whole GyPSii community. This exemplifies GyPSii's ability to share live events, anywhere, anytime, with the GyPSii community." This weeks Chengdu GyPSii posting can be viewed at Place on News & Alerts on www.gypsii.com.
