Copying photos from your DSLR to your iPhone – the easy way.

Do you shoot photos with a stand-alone camera like a DSLR?  Want to get those photos onto your iPhone for easy sharing (such as with Geospike)?

Now you can. Forget syncing with iTunes, that involves lots of configuration, and you end up with small images on your phone.

Introducing: Photo Queue. Photo queue is a free app that enables you copy full-size images from your Mac/PC over super-fast USB, and also send full-size images between iOS devices over bluetooth.

Google Maps in Geospike 3.4

Map OptionsOne of the new features in Geospike 3.4 for iOS is Google Maps support. Switching to Google Maps is easy. Simply tap on any spike to view it, then tap on the map, and from the map view, tap the “page curl” icon at the bottom-right. Select ‘Google’ as your map option, and it will be applied through the app.

Want more Map styles? If you upgrade to Geospike PRO you’ll get Open Street Maps (OSM) and Bing as well!

As awesome as Google Maps are, sometimes it’s nice to have some alternatives. For example, you can now cross-reference between Google and Apple if something looks wrong. OSM maps are great in some places too, utilising the power of the community to map an amazing level of detail. Our goal is to give you the tools you need, and you can choose the one you prefer.

Note: Did your map revert back to Apple? Due to the newness of these mapping tools, if Geospike crashes we revert it back to Apple just to be safe. But don’t worry, you can repeat the steps above to get your preferred map back. Once we are happy that everything is very stable we will remove this behaviour.
