New Features for NaviComputer V.93 Available

Ever since its release, xda member NaviComputer has been greatly improving his mapping application, which is known as Navicomputer. For those of you not aware of it, this is a  great offline GPS mapping tool that has been featured before in the portal (link to this article for more information).  Well, this great app has just received a new update, which takes it to version .93!  It comes with a few new features and fixes, so it is definitely worth checking out.

Released version 0.93

//

The main purpose of version 0.93 is fixing the issue with the OpenStreetMap map source.

But there are also some small new things included: By tapping on a POI marker on the map, the name of the POI will be shown on the map. Your current distance and bearing to the POI will be displayed in the top bar.

By tapping the topbar, it is possible to switch between different display modes (Altitude/Speed –> Location(Lat/Lng) –> POI distance/bearing)

ChangeLog:

NaviMapper:

  • Fix: OpenStreetMap map source

NaviComputer:

  • New: Possibility to select a POI on the map and display its name
  • New: Possibility to display distance and bearing to the selected POI in the top bar
  • New: Possibility to display current GPS location (Lat/Long) in the top bar
  • Fix: OpenStreetmap map source

Please Note: Unfortunately the OCM server administrator asked me to remove OpenCycleMap from the MapSources.xml. Too much traffic was caused by NaviComputer/NaviMapper.

You can follow the development in the application thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
