PinPoint Me New Style Map Emailer for iPhone

jTribe has submitted a new iPhone app to the AppStore. "PinPoint Me" is part of the firepin application family. This little helper application sends a Google Map Image as an email attachment. 

Based on user feedback we re-designed the app to offer a larger map and still offer the simple "two-button" approach.

Enough talk. Here are the screen shots. If you like it please stay tuned and we will announce here once Apple has approved PinPoint Me for sales in the AppStore.

1 Million Geo Locations in Firepin

Wow, we are very impressed with the speed and volume of Geo Locations hitting our server. 

Yesterday the 1 Million mark was reached. Yes, more than 1,000,000 locations are now stored on the firepin server within just over a month.

This is very encouraging for us and we will see how we can keep this service free for our loyal users.

Thanks to all our users out there using Firepin Trip Tracker on the iPhone or Android G1 phone!
