Street Panorama Combines Google Maps and Street View into One App

Google Maps is a must have application for every amateur world explorer. It’s fast, reliable, and saves us from getting lost on a daily basis. And with the addition of Street View, Maps has become one of the best and most widely used apps that Google has ever developed.

Even the greatest apps still have a room for improvement. XDA Forum Member markacme did something unusual and decided to combine Google Maps and Street View in a way that differs greatly from what Google offers. Markacme split the screen into two parts: The upper half shows the image from Street View, while the bottom shows the map. With this, the application is easy to navigate and can be used without touching the screen. This is possible because of volume rocker, which moves the camera forward or backward. If you enjoy visiting certain places repeatedly, you can always mark them as a favorite and browse through them later to watch the areas by yourself or show them to your friends.

The concept of this application is pretty fresh, and the application is easier to navigate than the default Google apps. Street Panorama is a great tool when you are planning to explore new places either on foot or while relaxing at home.

If you like the concept of this application, don’t hesitate to try it yourself. All you need to do is visit the Street Panorama app thread and give it a try.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
