LFNS iPhone App (Skate Routes)

Postby skaternick » Sat Feb 04, 2012 7:09 pm

Just wanted to mention an app I coded for the iPhone, allows viewing of LFNS routes, status's and supports GPS/Compass navigation. Hoping it might be useful for those with iPhone / possibly marshals as well for navigation.

http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/skate-ro ... 31602?mt=8

Skate Routes is designed for inline skaters in London to view the status (Pending/Go/Rained Off), and route maps for Friday/Sunday marshalled street skates organised by the LFNS (London Friday Night Skate), it also supports GPS/Compass based navigation.

Features

- View skate status - Pending/Go/Rained Off
- View map of the route - blue line upto half time, red line after half time
- View start/halftime location, and skate meta data.
- GPS / Compass support for route navigation (as with standard iPhone maps application)

Route Navigation

- Clicking the "Triangle Icon" (bottom left corner of the map) will cause the map to show a small blue dot (current location) and recenter the map on that location so you can see where you are on the map/route. The map will stay orientated with North facing up on the display. Every few seconds the GPS will be checked again, and the map recenter (as with the standard maps application).

- Clicking the "Triangle Icon" again (as you can do in the standard maps application on newer iPhone's with compass support) will activate the compass and cause the map to rotate depending on the direction you are currently facing allowing you to see where you are and which way you need to go relative to the map/route.

- Clicking it a 3rd time will turn off location support and allow you to manually zoom/pan the map.

What's the chance of this being ported to android?

I only have an iPhone myself but perhaps someone else will be able to code a similar app for Android.
