New Maps tab

I received a rejection notice from Apple on Tuesday:

“because this application does not have Core Location user features but is requesting location data, it violates section 3.3.6 of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement”

This is because I geocode the queries before I submit them to, so I can show the tunes that are being searched on a google map. Anyway I’ve now added a mapping feature to Tunepal on the iPhone and resubmitted (on Thursday evening actually :-)) and I am really glad I did it! My tab bar was looking a little sparse with just 4 tabs, but now there is an additional tab for the map. It turns out that adding the map wasnt too hard. It took a few hours as I was already storing the geotagged queries on the phone. Its actually a very cool additional feature as now you can use Tunepal to answer questions like “what was that tune I heard in O’Donohue’s last week?” and all you have to do is look at the tunes on the map on your phone. Here are some screenshots of what it looks like:
