Very impressed with Vespucci

Posted by Pgd81 on 27 August 2014 in English (English)

I'm a bit behind the times with smartphones. I only got my first a couple of years ago, a small-screened, low-powered model on a cheap-ish contract. It did the job, but I recently upgraded to a far more powerful, larger-screened model with 4G capability and WOW suddenly I'm finding I can do all sorts of cool things. One of those things is OSM-ing on-the-go with Vespucci. I'd heard about it ages ago but dismissed it (who'd want to fiddle around with a phone when you can sit at home with JOSM?), but I installed it recently and it's brilliant. Smooth, intuitive, & great features like the "recall last tags" button and the fact it won't let you download new areas without finishing off the last area. I've become a father recently so don't have time for long hikes in the country right now, so instead I'm doing small things like POIs and addresses whilst walking to the station, and uploading them via Vespucci on the train to work. Perfect.

Same here - I used to consider mobile editing an experimental activity at best but having had a Galaxy S4 bestowed upon me by my employer I find that Vespucci is perfectly suitable for the occasional POI addition or tag editing while walking.

A share of that glory goes to Vespucci whose developers have definitely not stood idle since I had tried it on other devices.
