    I prefer the Google Maps because I like how it integrates with googles database of local stuff. I just put in the name and it finds it. I also think the traffic is great as it will show my 3 ways to go and tell me how heavy the traffic is. What frustrates me about apple maps is i can’t seem to drag the map around with my finger when I am doing turn by turn directions. Many times I want to see what is up ahead and can’t do that. Google’s new map is a huge upgrade from the app they had built into iOS 5.

    My other fav. map is Garmin N. America. I like the design better. It’s nicer to look at and it has some cool graphics. It does have traffic too but not as good as google’s.

    Might have a solution for Patrick…

    PhoneClean from It cleans out caches etc from iOS devices and removed 6GB from my iPad which was useful!

    Also, on permissions issues, I would recommend BatChmod from

    Hope these are useful

    Hi Adam-I just finished listening to this podcast and had a question: I wanted to see if I had any attachments on my iPhone that was taking up space so I downloaded the extractor. I went to the bottom of the list and there was iOS Files and I clicked on Extract but I couldn’t find a folder that said iOS in the Library. I must be looking in the wrong place or could it be that I don’t have any iOS files with attachments……??? I don’t know but I need help here. Thanks, love your show, Judy
