    I just finished reading the other users - must be a great app for US users but not so usefull for people in geographically smaller countries (sorrounded by other smaller countries), where country of origin is more important (and easy to remember) than state/city/area code.

    Namely? What filtering would you expect?

    No problem with that, but someone would have to provide maps for the whole USA. They can be exactly as the one you pointed (http://www.whitepages.com/maps/CA) but must contain no text labels (city names or areacodes). Just the area borders or seashores should remain.

    If someone is willing to prepare such maps, I'll compile them into a TreoAreaCodes database and publish on http://www.treoareacodes.com/databases

    Sorry, but it's a lot of work for one person, so we need some help from the users...

    Yeap But someone would first have to put the cities on the map. Or alternatively get a GPS cities database AND additionally associate it with areacodes. I don't suppose there are any commercial (let alone opensource) databases like this, and creating one manually is virtually impossible.

    Don't you think?

    Actually, now that I think of it, can you use the first three numbers after the area code to determine the city you're calling from? Is that database available? If so, you could create a text database that would show city and state istead of just state name.

    Edit: Oh, and you may want to be careful about soliciting maps. If someone were to give you copyrighted maps and you incorporated them, you could still be liable for copyright infringment. So, be careful about your sources.

    But TreoAreaCodes supports both: states and countries. So if you are in a small country and someone calls you from another country, you'll get all the information on that country.

    Yeah, I know but the product doesn't tell me anything about the country (and caller) I don't alreadly know. If I see +47, for eg. then I know it's from Norway. Norway isn't really divided into states, just cities. Same goes for Sweden - there are regions but not political boundries. Also, knowing the exact city (Göteborg, Stockholm, Upslalla) doesn't enhance to my ability to deal with the caller.

    I'm sorry I poo-poo'ed your product originally but it's really not of any value (other than cute) for me, in this part of the world.

    Of course I realize that. Thanks for the caution, anyway!

    I can send you some of this information.

    Where do you stand on concidering to adding this option? I think I was the first (or one of the first) to ask for city support? Personally, I would like to see you walk before you run here. A simple textual display on top of a map that displays the city is find for me. City area code identification is a must ahve requirement for me to purchase this product. Again to restate my expectations. I would like to have a textual (configuration option of course) city display on top of the map display. Obviously you will not be able to supply a complete list. For major metro areas that have *many* area codes, it would be acceptable to have all area codes mapped to the major city and not the little surrounding cities. I also would then expect to be able to manually add to/change the supplied list of cities. Text file is fine with me but if you want to supply a UI to make the edits so be it. The implementation details are not important to me but access to the list is important.

    Hope this helps and I look forward to your answer. I'd like to have the funcitonality soon so I can have time to evaluate before my evaluation runs out.

    Is there a way to show the map when a second call comes in (i.e. call waiting)? It only works for me on the initial inbound call. That is almost more important to me than the initial call (whether I interrupt a call depends a lot on who is calling and where they are calling from).

    Id pay double for this app, if it had a us exchange database, for example 212-334-2765, showing the 212 being in NY, in NYC, and the 334 part showing what town the exchange is in,. yeah itd take forever to get all that database info entered but man id love it.

    No, there are no updates to TreoAreaCodes so far. But hey! It hasn't been even a week since the premiere

    I have, however, made slight changes to the world flags (where blue color was rather gray, I turned it to real blue) and world maps databases (some Philippines islands were not highlighted). That's why these databases on www.treoareacodes.com/databases are now marked with version 1.01.

    Yes, for a week or two I'll be publishing new databases with national areacodes (French, German, etc. which comes first), and later I will collect users' feature requests to release TreoAreaCodes 1.1 somewhere in June.
