    From what I read this was not really tested on phones, right? But on webOS 3.x it runs? Have you tested with open webOS?
    OK cool.

    I am the first to admit I'm not yet expert in advanced webOS behaviors.

    I just know on PC I can not have two items in the same folder with the same name/extension and one has to get renamed. I imagined it was very similar under webOS and adding two X-Name-App entries into launcher might cause a problem.

    I happily stand corrected.

    The important difference is that Phoenix' map app is written using Enyo 2 which will make it run under Open webOS, too, and also simplify porting to other systems. 72ka's (really great) map app is written in Mojo (AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK) $which$ $is$ $not$ $supported$ $under$ $Open$ $webOS$.

    good to know!
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Plus this app is way smoother (at least for me) than 72ka's app and I like the interface better (not only 'cause of Enyo but as a whole) and the Street View works good in this app.

    I believe you need to have 2.2.4 and the app installed as an app, rather than running it via the browser to get touch events properly. If those conditions were fulfilled, then it's either an app problem, or some other problem in Enyo 2 possibly.

    aaawww well history repeating, always the same probs with touchevents on webviews on 2.2.x devices. this is what jan is struggling on his maps app for so long and makes him develop workarounds:

    perhaps phx-crew can patch that webkit inablility in webOS 2.2.x (all other versions before and after seem to work if i understand jan correctly). Should be able for some skilled webOS devs to have the code compare on that touch event issue.

    Would be great for the community and you could gain lot of betatesters for phonesized version of your app

    btw. jan even tried to get to google, but no answer:

    Really? On my Touchpad, it's pretty slow. And by pretty, I mean extremely (and I'm overclocked to 1.8 Ghz). It has its good days, but the majority of the time, it lags. Takes long to render after zooming, getting directions, etc. But it's an alpha for a reason. We'll be working on it, improving the usability (i.e. speed and responsiveness) before adding features.

    'Google Maps' from the talented 72ka may take an extra second to start, but the GPS fix is accurate and the refresh once loaded is near instant.

    WebOSM maps has the same location flaw as phxmaps, but Mapping Tool (pro) gets it right. Are GPS database co-ordinates wrong for WebOSM and phxmaps?
    15 miles away is better than mine. I'm in Texas, but Phx Maps is placing me in Sydney... Although that wasn't the case two days ago. It was working perfectly then. I'll have to get that checked out... But no worries, my friend. Like I said, don't get rid of any of your other maps apps just yet. Once we get most of the kinks out and we're ready to upgrade to beta and stable, we'll let y'all know!

    Edit: But now after a quick reboot, I'm back at my house lol

    I haven't experienced any lag yet. It's really blazing fast here. Only navigating is really glitchy but everything else is fast and rendering is especially really fast.

    Edit: I've tried to film it but my upload speeds are slow (downloading and surfing is really fast though) so I can't show it right now.

    its a nice app they however did not test it for the veer, as it seems since the header needs better formatting.
    still prefer 72ka's though

    Enyo 2 comes with the app.

    Heres what it looks like on pre 3. The issue I have is that I can't move the map view and zoom.

    You can also pull the enyo "tray" to the middle of the screen

    Also could not get the street view working but may have been operator error lol.

    Love the app so far, looking forward to the finished product.

    interessted to use SYM-key in ENYO2 on webos phones? Perhaps you can fix that small part to make it compatible with version 2.

    Thanks for all of the feedback and suggestions, guys! Sadly, I'm not the one who created this app (nor do I have the knowledge as of yet to work on it), but I'll forward this to the dev(s) so they can start fixing up the code. Again, this is an open source app, so feel free to make pull requests and push things upstream if you'd like! Once I have any new information concerning this, I'll update the thread!

    I wanted to know if the update that google maps has done for some of the android phones were possible for hombrew. It sounds like that is a needed addition to google maps. Rerouting and zagat would be wonderful.

    What Google does for its own platform won't immediately be available for any other; usually, only iOS ends up getting the changes afterward.

    In most cases, the public APIs that independent developers have to rely on never get the updates. So...I wouldn't expect much. Android and iOS have the clear competitive advantage because they're the platforms that get almost every new features while nobody else does.
