Yes, I have the same complaint “ZoneTag is only available for use by US users.”
Could you exercise your power and ask to deploy at least an Europe-enabled version as well? 😉

I don’t think it’s either. There’s no reason they couldn’t do city geolocation based on cell metadata. Admittedly the zip code database in the US is easier to come by than postcode data for the UK, for example, but that’s no excuse. Postcodes are probably an unwarranted level of accuracy.
Use Meaning instead. Open source, more capable (it looks at local Bluetooth devices too) and works outside the US. Plus it’s not quite as self-promoting in its tagging (although that’s arguably a bad thing). (Or, if you must, look at Shozu.)
