Google Maps for iOS
Find out where you are and where to go with Google Maps for iOS

We won't delve in to the various issues revolving around Apple's Maps supplied with iOS 6, but it's safe to say a number of people wish Apple had kept the Google Maps app instead. Luckily Google have released a dedicated Maps app, which just goes to prove that even a relatively simple sounding map tool can be so much more, as it packs navigation, traffic information, 3D views and Street View into one essential tool.

Many mobile users will use maps to determine where they currently are and how to get from A to B. even if you don’t have a GPS enabled device, Google Maps can use nearby wifi access points to work out where you are and then provide you with turn by turn navigation to the destination of your choice. With the option to search for places and businesses, you can easily track down restaurants, landmarks and more, and discover how to get there.

If you don’t need turn by turn navigation you can opt to simple generate directions and the new Compass Mode can prove useful to help you to work out which way you are facing and which way you need to head. Support for Google Latitude makes it possible to find out where you are in relation to your friends and layers can be used to view maps in different ways, adding useful information such as traffic and more.

Three dimensional maps provide a great way to get our bearing and find out what’s nearby while the ever-useful Street View options makes it easier than ever to work out where you are and recognise where you need to be heading. Offline caching means that mapping is available even when you don’t have an internet connection.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
