Mapquest

Mapquest has always had free turn-by-turn driving directions. It actually finds street addresses for new residential developments that even Google Maps doesn’t find. Naturally, I want to use it now that I’m on iOS 6 because of the very poor performance of Apple Maps, which can’t find simple local addresses unless they’re spelled exactly the same way as they appear in Apple’s data (which often includes non standard abbreviations).

I noticed an update available and got this error from what appears to be an updated “app store” in iOS 6. Maybe this isn’t really an error, but a covert strategy to force use (free R&D for Apple) of their new attempt at being Google.

SugarSync Gmail Spam

I was greeted with the little red banded warning message below by Gmail yesterday, suggesting that my account had been accessed (presumably hacked) from Romania. I was, at first, very alarmed, but realized that granting SugarSync permission to send invitations to my Gmail contacts must have been the cause.

Gmail security warning message.

Needless to say, I was not in Romania.

If you received multiple invites from me for SugarSync, I must have more than one email address for you in my Gmail contacts. Sorry for the SPAM!

I’m not all that  impressed with SugarSync. Dropbox is much cleaner and easy to use.

I’m STILL looking for a way to select and upload multiple files from iPhone. I know the control to do this exists in IOS because I’ve seen it in native iPhone apps. Pixelpipe allows for multiple upload, but I still can’t do any multiple file manipulation from iPhone or iPad. I want to be able to move a group of files into a folder on Dropbox. I’d also really like to be able to compress/resize a batch of images from iPhone/iPad before moving them into a folder.

Seriously, is this too much to ask?
