App Junkie Needs GPS!

skobbler US for iPhone
By: skobbler GmbH
Price: Free!

 

Ok App Junkies, so you are lost, again. Despite the free Google Maps application that came with your iPhone, it has sadly let you down. What is the point of this new technology if you can’t even get to where you are going? And even if you do get there, good luck maneuvering without a navigator. Trying to look at the map on your phone and drive through traffic is not an easy task. But where oh where is there a turn by turn voice navigation app that you don’t have to pay out the nose for? Well I have found it my friends, and it’s name is Skobbler!

Skobbler is the first free voice assisted turn by turn navigator app to offer true street level navigation. A companion to the Skobbler website, the app allows you to enter an address and navigate there without having to look at your phone. There are several voices to choose from, all which are pretty pleasant, and it gives adequate warnings for upcoming turns or exits that might be coming up.

The best thing, is it’s all free! No subscriptions or in app purchases. Just sign up for an account and you’re off and navigating. How does it stay free you ask? It uses the OpenStreetMap mapping system which is an open source, similar to that of Wikipedia. This kind of set-up allows you to improve the maps yourself by reporting any errors directly through the app! Of course, because the map is created by users, there may be a chance you find areas that are not fully mapped out, especially if it is more rural. But the more you update those areas around you, the more accurate the map becomes. Skobbler also updates its maps during each use and it only uses a tiny share of your iPhone

Hangover 2 images released

Posted on 18 January 2011 by TH3 No08

Here’s a couple of cool screen shots from The Hangover 2 featuring a dishevled Ed Helms, a nearly bald Zack Gafanakis and a sweaty (but still cool in his sunglasses) Bradley Cooper. The plot of this movie has been held pretty close to the chest so far but it looks to involve a monkey on a wire (see second picture). This is on my list of must see movie for 2011 and if it’s half as funny as the first one it will be awesome.

Synopsis…

In the follow-up to the record-breaking hit comedy

ZumoCast for iPhone
by Zecter Inc.
Free!

So you have an iPhone. Awesome. You add your music, your apps and pictures, only to basically max out the phone’s capacity. Great. What about other media? What about loading movies for on the go? Why should you negotiate what stays and what goes based on the space on your iPhone? Well now you don’t have to.

ZumoCast, from the makers of ZumoDrive, turns your Mac or Windows PC into a media streaming server that you can access through any web browser or iOS device. You do have to set up an account and download the software to your computer, but the process is pretty painless. And unlike some similar applications, you don’t have to upload the files you want to access.

Red State trailer hits the interwebz…

Posted on 23 December 2010 by TH3 No08

Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.
