iPad Mapping – Part 2

April 9, 2010 at 6:39 pm (Uncategorized)

Why is the iPad so big?  As I mentioned before, the screen size increase creates a number of useful features in the way of mapping technology.  The larger screen means maps can be viewed in greater detail, and we don’t have to zoom in as far to see the level of detail we are looking for.  This allows us to see a larger area of the map in detail.  Also, the screen size allows us to divide up the screen, showing information off to one side while displaying the map simultaneously.  The greatly improves the usefulness of the mapping apps on the iPad over the similarly available apps on the iPhone or Android series.
