    Re: My iPhone 5 Real-Time Review

    this morning i tested the iPhone App... MAPS Worked Perfect... im not saying overall its perfect, but i don't think its the nightmare people are portraying it to be. I use in my area and drove within 5 miles of my house making wrong turns continuously, what amazed me was the QUICK response to corrections/recalculating, and giving me turn commands well in advance to adjustments/Directions. i remember when i use to have'd slow down my car to allow GPS to recalculate, especially driving in the city/suburbs where streets are close together.

    I will try using the Map App again, as for now works great for me...

    Re: My iPhone 5 Real-Time Review

    today ill try Google maps..

    I found that adding a Website to my Homepage/Homepages is a breeze with Apple's software user friendly navigating, i went to the website, clicked on the option "Add To Homescreen" ... titled it to my liking... hit Add, the Icon with Title appears on the homescreen. Now i don't have to search my web bowser for the page, i just hit the icon and im there. I use these steps to put "Google Maps" on my Homepage.

    Re: My iPhone 5 Real-Time Review

    Google Maps was great for text directions just the way it is on you laptop, no voice. So i tested my TomTom on my iPhone, which i paid 60-70 dollars a few years ago. Apple Maps Won, yeah that's right, Apple Maps won for the simple fact that when i made wrong turns, the Apple Map App recalculated faster to redirect me/keep me on track, the TomTom i had to wait and came right at the street which i knew i had to turn because i was familiar with the area. If i were driving as i did with Apple Maps, i would needed to make a sharp quick turn, or pass the street i needed to turn on.

    Now if your having problems with the Apple App accommodating your needs, then of course your not happy with it, like needing it for mass transit or something. I had a friend sitting in the passenger seat monitoring my phone, and who agreed with me comparing the Apple App and TomTom that the Apple App was much faster in recalculating a wrong turn.

    As far as im concern the iPhone 5 App Maps works great, if yours isn't working great in your area, be patient, im sure their working on fixes.

    Iphone 5 √erizon service has an update... hook up to iTunes

    This evening an update is going out to Verizon iPhone 5 owners which resolves an issue where, under certain circumstances, iPhone 5 may use Verizon cellular data while the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network. its not sure how much data leaks or if Verizon will be offering refunds.


    To finish the installation of the update, your iPhone 5 must be turned off and then on again.

    After your iPhone restarts, tap Settings > General > About, then scroll down to Carrier and verify that “Verizon 13.1″ is displayed.

    Re: My iPhone 5 Real-Time Review

    Another great part of the iphone/iPhone 5 is you don't need to shutdown/kill apps. if you notice anytime you use Maps or an App needing your location which the little ICON appears at the top of your screen, after coming out of the app like MAPS, after a few seconds that ICON will disappear, if the App was still running that ICON would remain at the top of your screen.

    That list of Apps at the bottom of your screen which appear when double tapping the home button are a list of the most recent apps used allowing you to open them again. Now they're some Apps like streaming video, Broadcasts, music that may remain broadcasting after you hit the home button returning you to your home screen while still hearing video/music/broadcasting streaming, those Apps will manually have to be ended/cancel/close.

    Yes i still close Apps at any giving time, i think its a mental thing, im even surprise to see how many Apps ive use over the course of the day.

    a good article about this is here... Fraser Speirs - Blog - Misconceptions About iOS*Multitasking

    Re: My iPhone 5 Real-Time Review

    i tried Apple Maps again, this time i was a little further away from my house. After setting it,Maps directed me to highway routes which was right, but being familiar with the back roads i tested the App again with a bunch of wrong turns according to turn-by-turn directions. Once again Maps work flawlessly, fast recalculations, voice commands well in advance to turns, i even made a wrong turn into a major park, Maps directed through the park and back out to major roads. I find no problem with Apple Maps.

    If "Maps" has you driving in circles, try "Waze" its free, and works great. here's a comparison.. Waze and Maps

    Re: My iPhone 5 Real-Time Review

    the ear plug jack moved to the bottom of the iPhone 5.... it was a good move by Apple. With the ear plugs attached i was holding the iPhone in my hand talking, i put the phone in my pocket, and when i went to pull the phone out of my pocket, the iPhone was in the natural position in my hand, no need to fumble with the phone to read the screen.

    I talked to an Apple rep last night about Maps, he said he was given wrong directions and had him lost, but he noted the App will improve the more you use it. The problem he had with Maps was the first time he use it.

    I tried killing the battery on my iPhone and it took some doing, i did bring the battery to 10% before re-charging it. i figure with my normal usage, i can use my phone for 2 days before ill need to charge it without cutting it close.
