Ipod Touch Google Maps

You are lost and don't know what to do? Turn ON your Ipod Touch, find open wifi and go to Ipod Touch Maps.

(True story)Friend of mine called me yesterday,he said "I am lost" I asked him to go to Grapier and type the address he is at and where he wants to drive to.

He called me 30 minutes later and found the place he was looking for!

So my dear Ipod Touch'ers go to that site now and bookmark it, it could save you!

Here are some How To Instructions:

Drag the map around using two fingers!.

Zoom in and out using the buttons on the upper left.

Switch map type, or toggle traffic overlay using the menu on the upper right.

Go somewhere, get driving directions, or search for businesses using the menu on the lower left.

See all directions or local search results at once by scrolling down below the map after you've done a search.

Many Ipod Touch 1.1.3 Firmware Owners are disapointed.

Looking at some 30 comments since yesterday on Ready For Ipod Touch 1.1.3 Firmware Many ipod touch owners are disappointed because Apple is charging $20 for additional applications. I think we all should wait for Developers other then Apple to start coding applications for free.

I have been Open Source Developer for few years now, and there is nothing better then receiving nice Thank You letter or small donations from people that support you and your Programs/Applications/Webdesigns etc.

Jailbreak as we all know was not out the same date as firmware 1.1.1 or 1.1.2, it was always released 2-3 weeks later. Therefore I think there are some experts that will start creating applications for Ipod Touch/Iphone just like for Blackberry or HCT phones for free.

Since I get about 10-15 email updates per day from good ipod touch sources, even from Apple iPhone developers, I will give my best to provide you (How To, Where To) links to get Ipod Touch Applications for Free(Open Source) without Jailbreak your Ipod Touch.

Over 9000 visitors on Ipod Touch Tricks Blog

Due to high volume of visitors lurking around for Ipod Touch Firmware 1.1.3 this blog reached yesterday 9.741 visitors yesterday. Over 20 members joined TouchCrunch forum and over 26.000 page views.

I am very proud for what I am doing here for you, collecting all possible information about Ipod Touch and share it with you.

This time I would like to thank every single visitor and every one of you that sent me an email regarding, updates, tricks , questions and help.

Dear visitors:

If any of you happen to have some spare accessories for Ipod Touch and would like to give away for February Contest please email me at ilovetoargue at gmail dot com , you will get link back to your product and or blog.
