gMaps Pro goes Mango with compass support and more
gMaps Pro is our go-to app when we want some Google services on our Windows Phone (since Google is evidently too busy fixing Android to make WP7 apps). We've been waiting on a Mango update for a few weeks now and developer Alexy Strakh has not dissapointed.
New features in v1.12 include:
- Compass support (shows what direction you're facing)
- Latitude background agent
- New bicycle layer
- Ability to hide buttons on the map
- Public transportation quick access
- Contact database access--now you can route a contact's address directly
Having Latitude update automatically in the background is a great addition, finally making this a true Google Latitude app. The compass feature makes it that much more useful (why Bing Maps doesn't do this, we have no idea). So overall, this is a great app that keeps getting better.
