Google Maps now features elevation profiles for cycling routes

by: J. Angelo RacomaMay 18, 2014

“Cycling is the new golf,” according to CNN Money. While biking has long been a combination of leisure activity, sport and a practical means to get around town, cycling has now turned into an event for business people to get together. According to The Economist, a growing number of city cycling clubs and corporate-sponsored charity bike rides are bringing together like-minded professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Whether you’re cycling for fun, as a challenge, to go around the city, or to mingle with fellow cyclists, you might be using apps like Google Maps to track your route. But even if Maps offers distance and time estimates, the map representation [...]

Heads continue to roll at Apple over Maps fiasco. Why doesn’t Apple just concede to Google Maps?

by: J. Angelo RacomaNovember 28, 2012
Apple's Maps application in iOS frankly sucks. Apple seems to be making an effort do do something about it, and the company has reportedly edged out a key executive responsible for Maps development. Will this help accelerate development and improvement on the platform, or should Apple just bite the bullet and let Google Maps handle what it does best?

GuidePal City Guides: Your personal city tour guide on Android

by: Dan EvansAugust 31, 2012

Going on a vacation means a lot of things. Relaxing, recuperating, re-energizing, and, don’t forget, discovering things. If you’ve decided to give yourself a gift in the form of a vacation, you’ll be aware of the advantages and the disadvantages of traveling. The top problem is, of course, getting lost.

Thankfully, Google Maps has been a great help in that department, but it’s still a bit too broad. You can see establishments and buildings, but which of those little dots is a good place to grab some coffee or rest your feet and listen to a live band?

GuidePal City Guides is here to make things easier for you. This app promises to [...]

New AAA Mobile Android app integrates roadside assistance, maps and driving directions for AAA members

by: AdrianJuly 19, 2012

How about asking for assistance to a stranger on the side of the road when something happens to your dear car? You hate that even more, don’t you? Or getting into a gas station in the middle of nowhere, realizing that the prices are much steeper than you expected and being too proud to walk away.

Well, if you hate doing all these things as much as I do, maybe the new AAA Mobile Android app will help [...]

Instamap: Viewing geotagged Instagram photos on Google Maps

by: Carl ParkerJuly 4, 2012

Nothing is more refreshing than having the chance to take a peek at different local places or even distant parts of the world without actually having to deal with the hassles of traveling.

Say for example, you want to see the recently opened Sky Tree Tower in Japan, but you don’t have the luxury of time to go out of the country and leave your job. Perhaps you’d settle on just letting it pass, while hoping that someday, the chance would come knocking on your door. But, more often than not, you feel inclined to find ways to see the view without compromising your entire business.

You may not be able to fly out to the destination of your dreams just yet [...]
