I am... and wow, you were right about that pub and accommodation feature. That's brilliant! Worth the effort of registering on its own, that one.

The only thing I don't like is its use of Silverlight, but that's just me being a technology snob. Wink

I'm not keen on the plug-in requirement either since it means I won't be able to access my maps on my iPad. There are rumours that some 3rd party iPad browsers might support Flash/Silverlight but I've yet to try any.

Posted: 21 Jul 2011 8:31 am


As an iPad user, I couldn't agree more. Then again, even HTML/JavaScript-powered sites can be hard to use on touch screens, as there seems to be no concept of hovering over things; my route maps, which run using Google Maps, are a bit fiddly on my iPad, and that's got nothing to do with Flash - they're designed to show labels when you hover over pointers, but I can't work out if that's possible on the iPad. Perhaps I just haven't got my head round all the different gestures - I only found out the other day that scrolling with two fingers scrolls within a pane (such as a Google Map), rather than scrolling the whole web page, so I've clearly got a long way to go.

So I managed to walk to the German border with Poland. In Frankfurt an der Oder. Now after a few years I think it's time to do the final leg. To Warsaw !! With regards to maps. I think nowadays an iPhone is all you need.

Wow, good job, Simon! That's some walk... Shocked

I'm glad to hear that an iPhone is all you need, as it makes life so much easier to have everything you need in one compact package. When I think of all the weight and space I used to devote to a palmtop computer, camera, phone, maps and compass... and now it's all in one little handheld device. It's amazing. Smile

Enjoy the rest of your walk - brilliant stuff!
