No Stack app soon [Cydia]



stack

Remember Stack version 2.2 video posted recently? There will be no 2.2. version and current version (2.1) will be removed from the repository quite soon. Why? The developer is angry at hackers, who cracked his apps avaliable in AppStore:

“I have to work extra hard as it is on creating things for the App Store, but when people like paniK go ahead and make my software available to pirates and I watch sales vanish overnight, it means I have to spend much more time on marketing and development for my App Store apps to try and offset my losses, leaving no time for projects like Stack that earn me nothing.”

Mac Plus emulator for iPhone [Cydia]

Mini vMac is a crazy emulator for jailbroken iPhones that lets you run the Mac Plus OS on your iPhone. This is not an official appstore product so you’ll have to jailbreak your iPhone and add namedfork.net to your Cydia repository list. It will appear under Emulation.

Gmap v1.2 [AppStore]



gmap

This app didn't work very well in the past. Today has been updated up to version 1.2, which adds numerous bug fixes and real-time turn tracking. It does indeed provide turn-by-turn directions (distance countdown to each turn) by way of GPS. Local points of interest (Food, Fuel, etc.) can be found, addresses can be searched, routes can be edited, detours added, and types of roads can be avoided (highways, toll roads, etc.). If a turn is missed, the route is recalculated. By having actual maps stored on the device itself, it does not require the use of an active internet connection to pull mapping data (like Google Maps).

The 800-900 MB applications each cost $19.99 and carry regional maps for the Western and Eastern halves of the United States (Europe coming soon, some time in March).

Sygic turn-by-turn GPS navigation



iphonegpsconcept

One of the most elusive and desired apps for iPhone is turn-by-turn GPS navigation. We heard that TomTom was developing a GPS navigator. To date, it hasn't shipped. Recently, the focus has been on xGPS, an app that requires a jailbroken iPhone to work.

At Mobile World Congress 2009 (MWC09) in Barcelona, Spain, Sygic is demoing a version of their namesake GPS navigation software running on an iPhone 3G. The Sygic software uses maps from TeleAtlas, the same company that supplies map data for Google Maps. Sygic produces similar software for Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.

Applicatin has turn-by-turn GPS directions with voice prompts, points of interest, support for multiple countries, and locally-stored maps.
