Just found this on the marketplace and I have to say… pretty awesome. This is what WP7 was missing. Although its clearly in the beta stage it is pretty good for a V 1.0.

A-to-B is a Turn-by-Turn application built to demonstrate some of the capabilities of the ArcGIS API for Windows Phone. Warning: The application is meant for demonstration purposes only! Do not rely solely on the suggested routes or instructions given by this application. Features: – Turn-by-turn routing. Sound notification when a turn is coming up. – Add often used destinations as favorites. – List of recent destinations. – “3D view” when in navigation mode with easy accessible “zoom in/out” buttons. – 2D Map for browsing the map supporting pinching, panning etc, and pick new destination by touch’n’hold on the map. – Easy accessible “Recalculate” button if you go off the route and need a new route from your current location (because of service restrictions, the app is not allowed to do this automatically). – Routes all over US (support for Europe coming in a future version). – Worldwide map (detail may vary).

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
