This is very cool, and something I have thought about. How cool would it be to have Risk like boards but of different maps, like the US or Europe?  Well Havoc has done that. Its a kick starter project but they have 15 designed maps so far, Civil War US, New York, United Kingdom, Los… Read More

google maps iOS icon

So your gmail and other Google apps have been acting up?  Screen locking up?  Mail not sending, then when it does you send out 2 or 3 copies?  I sure have.  The funny thing is this started for me the day after Google for iOS5. Now before any one jumps on this, I have no… Read More

Yes, the long national nightmare is over.  iOS5 users can finally say goodbye too Apple maps and use a better system.  And I bet the Auzzies are super happy.   I’m going to download this puppy right now and test it out.  More later.  Now we just need to wait for a jailbreak to make… Read More

google iOS6 maps survey

Last week I wrote a story on the reduction of people using iOS Maps, and cross posted on VentureBeat on how Snappli did a quick survey of use patters and found a significant drop in the number of people using Maps after iOS6.  Of course, plenty of fanboys got all in a huff questioning results,… Read More

There are a lot of very cool things in iOS6 that iPhone 5 users are going to get. Maps is not one of them. Dont get me wrong, the 3D stuff is very cool, but I do not need this on my iphone. Street view would be far more useful. But that is not the… Read More

The news broke out at where 2.0 that if you pull a .db file from your iphone, it has a record of everywhere you have been in the past year.  WOW.  Worse, this file in NOT encrypted. So the question is; why are they collecting this in the first place?  Perhaps the government wants it?… Read More

Oh I.. cannot.. .wait.. As seen on Gizmodo, Google is about to release a 3D maps app, Maps 5.0,  for Android that is vector based!  How sweet is that?  For those of you who do not know, vector based graphics are images created by drawing shapes and lines based on instructions instead of raster graphics… Read More

It might be. I just noticed today that when I go to maps I get a pop up for my location that allows me to share it out via email. I’m sure this is part of 3.0 and why I have noticed it till now I have no idea. If it IS new, then I’m… Read More
