Well, due to an App Store snafu, Take Me Home’s version number is wrong—1.0.1 instead of 1.1—but the new version is now available via iTunes. This release fixes problems people with the original iPhone and iPod Touch were having; there is now a progress bar that fills up as your iPhone has a better lock on your current location.
I submitted version 1.1 of Take Me Home to the App Store today. Hopefully, it will be available soon. Take Me Home 1.1 adds the following features:
-Better feedback for current status when the application is getting location updates
-Ability to customize map type
This update may appear as version 1.0.1 in iTunes, but that will be fixed when I update the version number with the next upload.
Take Me Home is available via iTunes for $0.99.
I’ve submitted Take Me Home 1.0.1 to Apple. It’s a small UI update, so I’m hoping that it will be available within the next few days.
I’ve created a roadmap for Take Me Home that outlines my plans for new features. Take Me Home is currently at 1.0.0, and I hope to release version 1.3 by the end of January. I’m going to do one feature at a time to get new features out as soon as possible, rather than have big releases with lots of time between them.
My first iPhone application is for sale! It’s called Take Me Home, and its sole utility is to create a map from your current location — automatically determined via GPS — to your saved home address, saving you clicks and providing convenience.
