About a week ago the main RunningMap web app was upgraded. The primary difference is the mapping engine change to Google Maps. The result is access to more up-to-date maps and faster loading map tiles. You will also notice while in “satellite” map mode that you can zoom in closer by two more levels than before! We re-made the elevation graph from scratch. Also, we upgraded the database to support foreign (to english that is) characters. This was a big upgrade for us and we are happy to report things have gone pretty smoothly. Here is a full list of the additions:
- Google Maps
- Zoom with scroll wheel
- New elevation chart
- Share your route via Twitter and Facebook
- Back to start button
- Delete mid-route point
We are currently working on a much needed update to the iPhone app. Lots more to come. We promised to keep it simple, useful and beautiful.
