Review: A-Z Maps

Posted by Mark

While in London I was able to walk around and discover the city without holding a large map and looking like a tourist because of a simple software I was able to get for my phone called A-Z London Maps. I don’t think I would have been able to enjoy my stay without this incredibly easy to use and practical software.

You don’t need a GPS device and you don’t need to connect to the internet to be able to use the map, the software installs everything onto your phone. To use the software all you need to do is type the name of the street you are in and the software will show you on a detailed map where you are. This helped me a lot since if I needed to find my way back to the hotel I would just check on the map to see where I was and then plan my route. Also if I found a street I liked I could easily find my way back. If I was using a regular paper map it would have taken me ages to find my location on it but with A-Z maps I just type my street and the software instantly circles my location on the map.

There are maps for London, Paris, Dubai, Barcelona, Helsinki and more but they only work on some Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones. You don’t need to buy it to try it either, you can download the map and try it out for 30 days before you decide to purchase it.

I only found 2 problems with the software or should I say there are 2 things I would have liked the software to do. The first is the option to work with a GPS device. Although every street corner in London displayed the street name it would have been more practical if the software automatically recognized where I was. The second thing I would have liked would have been the option to search for shop names and then have the software find it for me on the map. Of course thats asking for to much but still, it would have been nice to have.

Final score is a 4 out of 5. If you are interested in the maps you can check out the Lumisoft website for more details and trial downloads. [Link]

Heathrow

Posted by Mark

I am at the Heathrow Airport waiting to board my flight back to Kuwait. Security here was crazy but honestly this is how it should be in every airport. I noticed outside the airport terminal is a high concrete wall, I am assuming this was recently added after the incident in Scotland where some guys slammed their jeep through the terminal and tried to blow it up.

fish and chips

A lot of you have been recommending a variety of restaurants for me to try out ranging from Thai, and Lebanese to Italian and American but no one even recommended a good Fish & Chips place! While walking around today I found a small cozy place where I had Fish & Chips for lunch.

SNEAKERSSSSS!!!

Posted by Mark

funky shoes

One store I fell in love with here in London is called Size?. Size? is a sneaker store but they seem to have the coolest/funkiest collection of sneakers I have seen all in one place. Majority of the sneakers I saw today I had previously only seen on SneakerFreaker.com and DrJays.com. Now I am trying to figure out which sneaker to get, I only want to get two but I have around 10 I like. Some of the sneakers I found and liked are displayed above and below this post.

London Rocks

Posted by Mark

This is my first time in London and I have to say its the coolest place I have been to. Its cooler than New York, LA and Montreal, there are soo many streets, shops and people all packed tightly together. The picture above was taken on Oxford Street which is a sucky tourist street.

VIP Lounge

Posted by Mark

I am at the Beirut airport now waiting for my flight to London. I came early so I could spend time surfing the web and playing some Xbox 360 games in the Cedar Lounge. Since I am travelling with British Airways they gave me a VIP Lounge pass which sounded a lot cooler but I just got to it and it SUCKS. No computers, no WiFi, no English newspapers, no AC and its tiny, dark and gloomy. I am going to see if they will allow me to get into the other lounge cuz this one sucks majorly.
