Description of BigTinCan Mapper
Mapper is a cool app that let you take part in the global OSM community and "map your world" by adding Points of Interest (POIs) easily and quickly from a smartphone whenever and wherever you are. From your phone you can add details about the your local area and your local community - get things set out right, add local details including marking shops, restaurants, movie theatres, post boxes and much more then upload it using BigTinCan's new open mapping protocol directly to the OSM servers. You'll need an account with OSM to be able to send POIs. You can get a free account at

You can also contribute to your community by lodging a TidyMyStreet report right from the app - map potholes, graffiti, abandoned cars, and other neighbourhood issues directly from your phone, and then view them on maps dot bigtincan dot com.

TrackMyRoute - Mapper includes the ability to track your route, and then upload that route to your own computer or share that with your friends. You can track your route live, check out the GPS details and route status in real time, then send your route as either a ALX or GPE file direct to your computer, to a router tracking website, or view the route right then and there on your BlackBerry. In the FREE version you are restricted to a single route, or you go GO PRO and manage more routes.

Mapper lets you view your world using a range of maps views (using different layers including tourist information, bike paths and even a midnight view amongst others)

Mapper lets you overlay GPS information from your phone directly on the map, and lets you jump right to MyLocation anytime.

Location Services
