Access 2013 Web App - Get Location Data from Mobile Device RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have built a web app using Access 2013 and it is hosted on SharePoint using my Office 365 E3 subscription.

    The app is used via the browser on a mobile phone (Running Android) and it would be extremely useful for the app be able to capture GPS location data from the phone, by pressing an action button for example, and storing the (Lat. long.) coordinates in a data table within the app.

    I have read this is possible on other web apps by using browser geolocation features but can this be done in an Access Web App?

    Many thanks in advance for any help/guidance on this
