not everyone needs to go outside to have fun

GOoTgLOST? maybe not, thanks to GMM

Yeh I know what ya think: the title is lame right? It’s on GMM: Google Maps Mobile ((was very shiny around Jan 2008))

For some reason it never occured to me to open google maps through my mobile when I was looking for direction until just recently. Probably since my luck was generally pretty good, I trusted it with the answer to where I should be going.

Well not anymore! I’ll be using this GMM from now on because it is so great! Not only that it presents you the map you need, it can also calculate the path from point A to point B. You can then go through each important point in the path such as intersection or roundabout, just like how a GPS would direct you to do. The interface is of course much simpler than a fully animated picture with a lady talking with soft, hushed voice, but nonetheless it satisfies me in terms of its ease-of-use.

If you want to have a look at a preview of it, this youtube video is not a bad place to start.
