Jailbreak Tweak Adds Spedometer to iOS Maps
Tweaks for the iOS Maps app are somewhat of an anomoly, not in that they're unusual, but that it's unusual how few of them exist. However, a new jailbreak tweak adds something that probably should have been there from the start.
The Speed for Maps tweak adds a spedometer to the iOS Maps app. It's simple, effective, and lookes like it should be there. It even lets users select what units to measure their speed in. Not sure when feet per second, or meters per second would be necessary though.
The native iOS Maps app lags behind Android and their offering, but this does a little bit to catch up. Of course there are plenty of other navigation and maps applications with more functtionality than the native iOS Maps app, but why not pick up some of the slack where Apple slacked off. Who knows, maybe Apple will update the Maps app in the official release of iOS 5?
The Speed For Maps tweak is available in Cydia now. For free.
