Re: Google Maps

Only problem with Map App is that it will only allow you to find an address. It will not let you route a trip or do anything else that the normal google maps will allow.

Re: 7.1.0.402 leaked for bold and torch

So far .402 is working pretty good for me, and has none of the battery drainage issues that I was having with .358. On that OS, I could barely make it 4~5 hours before my Torch was dead!
