It has been a long time since we have release out last version of the Galileo app and even longer since the last post. We think it is about time to start this going again and get better at updating this blog! Now you can sync your Galileo data between all of your devices using iCloud or Dropbox. Keeping your GPS tracks and bookmarks in sync across all of your devices has never been easier. No matter what number of iOS devices you use, you can have all of your geo data easily available. Your data will sync automatically from time to time if you’re logged into the same iCloud or Dropbox account on all your devices (and if sync is enabled in app settings of course :). In case of Dropbox you can initiate sync process manually: just pull the My Collections list down until spinning icon appear. The exact amount of time to initially upload your data varies based on the size of your data and the speed of your device and internet connection. Now you have no need to open item details screen every time you want to change the collection it belongs to. Finally! Just tap and hold the track or bookmark on My Collections screen and move it to the collection you want. We will continue to improve the app over time, and we appreciate any feedback you may have. You can send your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do you love Galileo and want to help us to make it even better? We are looking for enthusiastic and approachable folks to give us feedback on the Galileo app before it goes live. This will include finding bugs, translation typos, or any other improvement suggestions. This is an unpaid role but you will receive Pro version for free with chance to preview Galileo’s some latest features among the first. Drop us an email at email@example.com with subject “I want to be a beta tester” and let us know a little bit about yourself : There were 14 (!) versions released last year and we want to thank you for your support, feedback and encouragement! The biggest milestone of the year — version 3.0+. Just before the end of 2013, after a year of hard work, we launched our own vector maps in Galileo app. Ta-dam! The process of creating the vector-based maps wasn’t easy. Our main goal was to deliver the fast, compact, rendered on the fly vector maps to our users. There was a lot of learning, effort and persistence that helped us to finish the work we started. Looking back through the time, end result is worth the effort. Now it’s possible to download country map files before a trip for offline use directly within the app and zoom in without losing any detail between levels. What’s now? We not only want to keep our vector maps the fastest and most lightweight offline maps on the App Store, we also see it as a strong foundation to deliver many more features in future versions. Now we are working on new v3.1 that will bring more countries and more newly added surprising features, so keep your eye on us at: OpenStreetMap (OSM) — the free and editable map of the world. It’s completely created by crowd and free for anyone to contribute. You can use it to add and update data in your area, making the map better for everyone. Edits that you make on this map will be visible to everyone who uses OpenStreetMap, including the Galileo Offline Maps users. There is a powerful and easy-to-use map editing tool for that, called iD editor. Here’s a clue how to take your first steps on editing the map with it. First of all, trip monitor panel was added to display your current speed, altitude, distance and duration while moving: Second, previously “secret” handy tweaks are no more hidden. Just go to system Settings, scroll down and find the Galileo in list: Galileo Offline Maps provides many benefits to travelers: from being able to save on roaming costs while traveling to using their favourite map sources like Google or Bing Maps. But one of the biggest advantages is saving you from getting lost. Here’s how to use the Google Earth to get driving directions for your next trip and upload to Galileo Offline Maps. Source.
