OpenMobileMaps Gets Even Better on Version 1.4
XDA member Cipher brings us yet another update for his popular application for Windows Mobile. According to the dev, this new update brings a ton of bugs fixes as well as many speed improvements. On top of that, the app now has multi-language support and increased download speeds for the maps and features. This app has previously been featured in the portal, and you can read the previous article here.
I wrote an application similar to GoogleMaps but it’s relying on OpenStreetMap.org.
It’s finger friendly and showing the map on fullscreen.
GPS support and GSM triangulation (if no GPS device is present) is built in.
The downloaded map tiles are stored on your phone/storage and only new ones are downloaded.
It’s tested and working with all possible resolutions, with internal GPS and external GPS. And it should work on all Windows Mobile devices with .NET CF 3.5 installed.
Tell me what you think of it and please find some bugs!
You can find the change log and more information about it in the application thread.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
