Thanks a lot for the response. The offline one would be a biggie given that most apps lose directions in the middle of a route when cell coverage goes out but it definitely sounds like not an easy one...if I could at least keep my route going that would be amazing but if you guys can make it happen, I totally understand.
Thanks for the great customer service and great app!
When searching a location, it would be nice to have a little icon like ">" in the location's name tooltip for more info similar to the old maps app. From there we can view the full address and have a button for directions/navigation to there.
Getting navigation to work is not very intuitive in it's current form, and as a person who has used the google maps api myself, I know you can extrapolate the physical address when pinging their servers.
In the latest version (the 1.3 in progress) it will work more like the original google maps. So you can drop a pin when pressing down on the map. Then you will get the address details, and you will be given two small buttons, one for streetview and one for directions.
Sparkling Maps 1.2 has been accepted and the update is available in the app store now!
- Universal app: now full support for iPad. See streetview in high resolution!
- Auto completion location lookup
- Additional place categories
- Travel modes (walking/public transport)
- Language issue in route guidance resolved
- Horizontal and vertical orientation of maps
Try it out! If you could leave a review of the current version in the app store, we would greatly appreciate it.
We are finishing up the 1.3 release, which we will submit to Apple today. We are confident in creating an excellent maps alternative for iOS6 users, and your input is helping us in that!
