Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers. In June 2014, the Console OS team launched its Kickstarter campaign for a system that...
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)
- Fix: OpenStreetMap map source
- 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.

There are many things to love about the mobile industry, and when it comes to Android, I think one of them is that there's something for just about everyone. The OEMs of today cover many different demographics for those that want this, or that. And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
