Meet the improved gMaps 3.0!


No panic! gMaps is in the store and it was there all the time. The only issue we’ve faced with is the Search didn’t want to find our app. But now it is searchable again! So, please find and download if you have no gMaps app in your collection for now.

And this is not the only good news for you today.

We’ve made a really great work for such a little time and now you can find gMaps v3.0 in the Store! And, as you could already guess, this version is not without improvements.

Interesting? So, let me show you…

search-option search-screen

Not only Search in the Store is improved, but gMaps Search feature has also got its update. Now it even looks different. The new Search is performed on a separate screen, where you can see a list of proposed locations by first entering letters and you just have to tap on the suitable place in the list and it would be shown on the map immediately. By the way, the history of all your searches are saved too and shown to you with the next opening the Search screen.

routeOne more interesting and really useful feature for you is Building a Route.

This feature now is also in separate screen, where you can write manual places you wanted to start/finish with. When points will be entered the list of available variants of routes will appear. There you can also choose the travel mode. By the way, some routes by bicycle and on foot will be shown with warning and it will mean that some routes could be missing or changed because it is really difficult to track all changes of small routes. And you just have to tap on the suitable variant from the list and the route will be built on the map. And don’t worry, all of variants that you’ve seen in the list now is available for you in the top of the screen. You just need to swipe there and the route will be changed immediately. But if you don’t want any of routes appear on the map you can just tap the Back button and the screen will be closed without building anything on the map.

directions-optionNow you can not only build a route from A to B, you can put as much as 7 points. You can also set restrictions there and all available roads will be shown on the Directions screen, you just have to tap on the most suitable variant for you and the route will be displayed on the map.

There is also a quick way to access directions dialog from search dialog if you mistakenly pressed wrong button. Just follow blue/white “directions icon” and it will lead you to the directions dialog.


Another helpful feature is activation of third-partyapplications. This feature allows you to open some app you like for its drive mode, or which you’ve always used in the car. To activate drive mode feature you just have to build a route at first and then tap on the Car icon in the right upper corner or tap on the arrow which is show your current position. For this moment this feature is available only on the Pro version of gMaps 3.0, but soon it will be in the free version too.

Note+ Updated: Speed, Speed, and Kid’s Corner!

Note+ Screenshot Note+ Screenshot

With version 2.7, Note+ focuses on speed improvements for Windows Phone 7 and 8 —so fast, the experience feels like a truly native app. Speed has always been one of its main attributes, but never before has it opened, created and edited notes as fast as it does now.

Another big part of the update is Kid’s Corner integration —the first note-taking app to take advantage of this feature. So, what is it about? Simply put, it allows you to separate notes written by yourself from the ones written by your kids. This way, they’re able to type and play as long as they want, without modifying or deleting your notes. Just add Note+ to Kid’s Corner, and you’re good to go.

Note+ QR Code

Finally, a lot of other small improvements were added, including the ability to lock screen orientation to either portrait or landscape mode, depending on how you’re holding the phone when you enable the option. The main Live Tile, and lock screen notifications, will only update when there’s a featured note, and setting a Security PIN won’t disable Live Tiles.

Get Note+ at the Windows Phone Store for US$1.29, or try before you buy. For being a simple yet delightful note-taking app, it offers a lot of innovative and practical features.

Note+ Updated: Full SkyDrive Support and New Secondary Tiles!

With the previous update, Note+ got SkyDrive support for backup. This time around, SkyDrive support gets completed: it now includes a really convenient restore function.

After you’ve created a backup, which gets stored in the Documents folder on SkyDrive, you simply tap the restore button. It’ll search for the file, decrypt it —as it used AES encryption before uploading—, then ask if you want to replace all notes. After the user confirms, the notes from the backup are immediately presented on the notes list.

Now, secondary Live Tiles have been revamped: instead of showing the note’s content on the back of the tile, it’s shown on the front, allowing the user to quickly read it without having to wait for it to flip. However, it maintains the flip animation, showing the Note+ icon on the back; so it’s still a live tile.

Finally, a ContextMenu was added to the notes list, making it possible to quickly share, copy to clipboard, pin to start and delete notes without having to go inside each one of them. This menu is accessed by long-pressing a note.

You can get Note+ at the Windows Phone Store for US$1.29. Future updates are expected, which will introduce even more useful and practical features for a better note-taking experience.
