MapQuest App Just Released to Android Market

If you're a MapQuest user, you'll be happy to hear now there's an app for that in the Android Market. It's a great turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation app, which includes OpenStreetMap (OSM) features.

MapQuest Android also features voice search, a map toolbar for finding restaurants, coffee shops, gas stations, and parking with one click. There's both walking and driving directions, and live traffic flow.

The OpenStreetMap feature makes MapQuest Android App much more appealing. It's what's called a 'living map', it's improved daily by MapQuest users. They are user-sourced OSM Maps that provide an extraordinary local perspective and detail, bug logging for OSM, and international maps.

MapQuest Android app is free, just use your barcode scanner app on your Android device to scan the QR Code below, and it will install.

If you like Lego, be sure to watch the YouTube video I've included. These guys must have lots more patients than I.
