Note: Due to certain technical reasons all versions of SpeedView higher than 2.6 will not work withÂ Android 1.5 (Cupcake). You of course will be able to use your current version, but you will not receive further updates. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Note: We are aware of issues with the Motorola Xoom and working on tablet support at the moment. Also, several highly requested features, such as an ability to quickly switch speed limits and disable/enable screen auto-rotation, will be added in the next version.
SpeedView was reviewed by Kate Russell on BBC Click’s Webscape.
We are also pleased to announce that the free version of SpeedView now has over 1,000,000 downloads, and SpeedView Pro holds the first place among the paid apps in the Transportation category (Maverick being close behind). We would like to thank everybody for their continued support and valuable feedback, and most of all for the cool ideas and suggestions that you guys email us or post on the Market. This is a really awesome experience.
Also, we would like to confirm that the new version of SpeedView is currently in the works and will be released shortly. We apologize for the rather long delay between the updates.
Note: 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times are in their beta form. I wouldn’t rely too much on the results. And you won’t get milliseconds because the GPS receiver reports your location only once in a second. We’ll see how it can be improved. Also, we’ll add 0-100 km/h time for non-US and non-UK usersÂ in the next version.
We would like to introduce our new app – SpeedView for Google Android. It’s an advanced GPS speedometer that uses the phone’s built-in GPS system to show yourÂ current and top speed, direction and distance traveled. Successfully tested using T-Mobile G1, Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Droid and Nexus One, it’s suitable for running, car driving, biking or hiking.
Display units: mph, km/h and knots
HUD (mirrored) mode
The free, ad-supported version of SpeedView is available now for download on Android Market.Â Paid version with some additional features is coming soon.
Please note that the accuracy depends on your GPS reception quality.
Multi-touch is an over-hyped technology, especially when used in a browser and maps :) In Android browser I’ve changed zoom 2-3 times this year, when the font size was too small. If you think it could be useful for zooming maps, try to do it with one hand :)
But multi-touch is very helpful in other cases: games, software keyboards, touchpads in MacBook. It’s good to have it as an additional input method. That’s why it’s supported by Maverick now. Works on Android 2.0 (even if you have it on G1) and Cyanogen mods (uses this hack).
PS. Please do not submit AVG virus reports about Win32/Heur.
Because this is a â€œgenericâ€ (so to speak) detection, the file has not been 100% confirmed to be malware by the virus analysts (e.g. it has not yet been given a name), so there is a chance that the file is being mistakenly detected and it is not actually malicious.
