SpeedView news and updates

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.

SpeedView 2.4

What’s new:

  • 0 to 60 mph time
  • Quarter mile time
  • Stop/Start recording data
  • Quickly reset odometer and max speed
  • Reset text colors

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 users in the next version.

SpeedView – GPS speedometer for Android

SpeedView screenshotWe 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 your 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.

Features:

  • Compass
  • Distance
  • Top speed
  • Speed graph
  • Display units: mph, km/h and knots
  • Speed warning
  • HUD (mirrored) mode
The free, ad-supported version of SpeedView is available now for download on Android Market. Paid version with some additional features is coming soon.
Please note that the accuracy depends on your GPS reception quality.

Maverick 1.1.7 – offline maps with multi-touch

What’s new in this version:

  • Multi-touch
  • Knots and nautical miles
  • Better integration with Google Earth
  • Bugfixes

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).

Because this is a “generic” (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.
