View Full Version : google maps type app

Any idea on how one would start work on a map view? Something similar to the google apps map would be awesome (ie load tiles and display them). The user should be able to use their fingers to pan/zoom. I tried using a webView to display a map, but it simply takes too long to load all the JavaScript stuff. Additionally, the interaction with the map is really sluggish when using java script?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I like how the loopt app does it. They seem to load tiles directly form the Microsoft site.

The short answer is you need to design a custom UIView that intelligently downloads and displays the map data from a server.
