Location aware apps you love
 
So Wired has proclaimed this the year of the Location aware apps.

I bet our phones are just as location-aware as android and iphone(icrap?)

aside from the obvious live search and google maps what else are we using?

I honestly love live search. It's one of my most used apps on the phone.

I love it too but the streets are so hard to read when I am driving. The driving directions are much better then Google Maps, but I stick with Google Maps because it's easier to read. Wish they would fix that :) I do love the new update with the addition of aerial view.

+1 for Live Search

Sprint Navigation is also a fav

streetview on googlemaps is sweet.

Yeah I really do appreciate everything that Live search lets you do from weather to the awesome and more detailed traffic but the simplicity and ease of use in google makes it the program I turn to first.

live search is great. garmin xt is pretty awesome though too. i still amaze friends when they see that my phone also does gps navigation apart from everything else it does. definitely a year for location aware apps.

I do love the fact that I no longer need a standalone gps device :D. One thing I want to explore and find more about is what gps enabled apps people are using besides just A to B navigation :) Is there an App out there that someone uses that gives you restaurant ratings based on where you are? (other then Google Maps :D) or a twitter app with gps? Stuff like that and various other clever location uses.

OCN8 is hands down my fav with audio directions/street names, 3d maps with buildings around you and detailed terrain... :D
