    I have heard a couple sites recommend Sherpa as a good app for android but the only links I can find are for T-Mobile only users. Is there any way to get Sherpa on verizon?

    I am looking for Sherpa too. I looked in the marketplace but it comes up empty and I continuously see Sherpa regarded as a good app for the Droid and Android.

    Sherpa is only for T-Mobile at the moment. No idea if they'll ever make it available to other carriers.

    Sherpa.apk

    Here is a link to the .apk file.

    Works fine on the 2.0 system, you just need a file manager to install it. If you use astro, very simple.

    Is sherpa something you need to pay for? If it is ill take this post down immediately.

    So even though they say it is only for T-Mobile, I can still use this on Verizon? I suppose if I use that file you linked I could.

    Oh and there is no cost for Sherpa.

    Ok good, i installed the app and it links up and works just fine. I have seen no problems with it.

    Edited: If it really only is for t-mob it would mean it goes through their network somehow, if that is true they could just do what sprint did with it's OTA tv.. and just lock it down to those with an Ip assigned by t-mob.

    Here try this link, might be easier to download off of, I've always hated mediafire.

    zSHARE - Sherpa.apk

    Once you download it, transfer it to your droid, you can leave it on the top level or create a folder. Use Astro or another file manager to open the file and it should come up with wanting to use the appmanager, from there you can install it.

    Hi - Buddy from Geodelic here.

    Sherpa is currently exclusive to T-Mobile's Android phones. However, we will be releasing a Geodelic app that works on many OS's and carriers in the near future.

    Have you tried the app called WHERE?

    Does anyone here know the differences between WHERE and Sherpa or if ones has advantages over another in some area. I want an app that will allow me to find the hidden jewels of every city..underground and stealth but still cannot escape the app.

    haven't tried where

    but sherpa detects where you are and it finds all kinds of hidden goodies

    almost anything you can think of it will find it in this free app

    I believe Sherpa is exclusive to T-Mobile and not available on the Droid.

    here it is

    Sherpa.apk or zSHARE - Sherpa.apk you have to get astro from the market

    i used my droid and went directly to the website and downloaded it and then used astro to open it

    it works awesome i am telling you it is way cool

    also you can do a search on here under the application forum search the word sherpa

    it is not on the market

    when you use astro it will ask you if you want to install click the button and then it will do it automatically for you

    it took me about five minutes to figure it out but it is well worth it
