On June the 16th 2011 Paris based tattoo artist K.A.R.L. realised the first ever “animated” tattoo. Paris based tattoo artist K.A.R.L is probably going to make history with what appears to be the first animated tattoo brought to life with an iPhone. There is no real mystery behind it though. K.A.R.L tattooed a QR code on his guinea-pig. The QR code was made to display an animation when activated with an QR code reader you can find in the App Store. Not groundbreaking by any means, but still pretty cool… » First Tattoo With Integrated QR Code

Maps offline must be one of the most viewed topics on my whole blog.
I’m happy that the developer has released an updated version, as this version actually resolves a problem a lot of users have.

When you save your map, and then reactivate it, sometimes it happens that the map app is not positioning you exactly above your saved map, so you could be anywhere in the whole world, but not on your saved map.

Now this is a very very interesting little app.

Imagine you’re going on a trip to a certain city, but you don’t want to cary a gps around, then this app is your friend.

It lets you save a map or a route for later viewing.
I know that some cities have town covered wi-fi, but a lot of cities don’t, and if you have a map of where you’re going … you can always find your way :)

How does it work?

You browse the map you’d like to save with the google maps iPhone app.
Then you start the app, and save the current sqlite file (in my case it is Westvlaanderen).

Now when you’re offline (not connected to wi-fi or gprs) you can still use that map or any other map you have saved.

The same goes for routes :)
