    Hello, is there a simple way to get the country name using the device's location? For example
    Msgbox("You are in " & countryname &,"")

    You could use the lon and lat coordinates (obtained from GPS, wifi or 3G) and the reverse geocode them with google.

    Example:https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?latlng=47.3763900,15.0911300

    will return the json below which you will need to parse.
    or you could use the library from Warwound
