    In this paper, we identify practical and technical issues that we experienced during designing and experimenting a location aware system. Our system was designed using the Spot location aware system and the Event Heap server under the TeamSpace framework. We conducted a series of test runs of the application with developers, using wireless mobile devices such as the HP IPAQ 5500. From our experience, it shows that currently the Spot system is not viable enough for designing an imminent location aware application. Finally, this paper concludes with general remarks about how our findings and recommendations can be taken into account for the improvement of the Spot system and consequently for similar location-aware systems.
