MapHook, a software applications developer, has launched new journal and social networking application, MapHook, for the iPhone and personal computer that allows users to create location-based entries — or “hooks” — about events, activities and places that can be shared with friends, family, their networks and other users. ¬†

MapHook combines “anywhere” journaling, content generation and access to Internet-based information sources. Paul Carter, CEO of MapHook, says it was designed from the start to combine both the power of the Internet and mobility.

MapHook is currently available at the Apple App Store and the iTunes website for free.  Individuals without iPhones can sign up at http://www.maphook.com to have full access to the app via the web.
