Care to Know How Fast You Go? SpeedoPhone for WM
XDA member savrix85 brings us this new speedometer application for WM. The app uses a minimalist style a la WP7, which makes it easy to use and to read as everything in the UI is white with black background. The app can be used for a number of things, including checking your speed while driving (great for avoiding tickets), check how fast you are running, see the speed of the train that you are on, and more.
The app is in its initial stages, so if you feel like giving some pointers and suggestions to the dev, please feel free to do this. Bug reports are welcome as well.
Being aware of your own speed can always come in handy, whether you want to avoid breaking limits, to verify your vehicle’s performance, your own, or just out of plain curiosity.
So here comes my latest creation, SpeedoPhone.
If you have a WM device with GPS and you want to keep your speed under control, SpeedoPhone is what you need. You can use it when you’re on foot, in your car, on a train, on a plane, on boat or wherever you like.
The app has a Windows Phone 7 look, nice, user friendly and pleasing to the eye; as for the possibilities and information it has to offer, here’s what we’ve got.
The first steps are the same as always: download the cab from the link at the bottom of the page, install it on your device, open it and you’ll get to the home page.
You can find more information in the application thread.
