If you tried it before you might want to give it another shot. There are a lot of improvements and it is much more useable overall. Here is a screen shot of the new UI:
Here is a list of some of the new features:

- Current maneuver shows an icon rather than the full maneuver text.
- Easier to read maneuver text at top of screen.
- Preview the entire route with simple forward and back buttons.
- An estimated time of arrival is displayed.
- Quick reminders when approaching a maneuver on long routes.
- Fixed a bug where it would randomly think you were off route.
- Fixed a sensitivity bug where it would think you were off route on a wide road.
- Fixed a bug where entering the route from somewhere beyond the first maneuver would not put you on route.
- Various stability fixes.
- Added a screen for sending me crash reports directly when unexpected errors occur.
Overall it’s a much more stable and useable version. If you give it a try and have any feedback please let me know!
I created a turn by turn navigation app which is now available on the Windows Phone store for WP8 devices. I was unsatisfied with either the quality the existing apps or the price, so I went ahead and created one of my own. It simply provides voice navigation with the minimum necessary effort on your part. If you have been unhappy with the turn by turn navigation situation on Windows Phone 8, like I have, then this is the app for you!

This is an excellent article by Phil Plait, I recommend we all read it.
I recently contributed a chapter to what I think is a very remarkable anthology of short stories written by fellow Minnesota Atheists. It was a very nice experience to finally be able to write about the unusual path I have taken to both arrive in Minnesota and become and atheist. My contribution was a fairly personal story, partly about my time in a religious cult but also how it felt to loose my faith and the thought process that lead me to the conclusion that there is no God. It felt good to share it publicly and I hope you enjoy it. The goal of the book was to provide positive and inspirational stories from regular people to show everyone that Atheists are just people too and to help provide some insight into what makes us tick. And maybe you are an atheist too? If so, with this book you may find a community of like minded people waiting for you.
The book is now officially published and available in print or ebook from various book stores. Please head over to the website for more details:
Leo doesn’t approve of this so I couldn’t put it in a Tao of Leo but here is my own belief on estimation:
Estimation is a waste of time. The problem with estimation is that it masquerades as data when, by definition, it is guaranteed to be wrong.
