OSM4iPhone gets a web site

As you may have noticed, there is a new menu nearby the blog title. I have finally found time and made OSM4iPhone own web site. As the OSMTrack application advances, new features appear that need to be covered in the documentation. However pushing the complete documentation as blog posts seem to be bad both for me - it gets more difficult to track comments if pushing so many posts at once, and for you - you need to dig in to find the help.

For now the web site consists of a title page and the promised updated OSMTrack 1.5 documentation. But I also plan to add an FAQ page to explain what was my original idea of how I the app is to be used, and why certain features are there and others are not.

Are you able to provide a quick roadmap on the new site? (no pun intended!!)

Now I have an iPhone want to start contributing to OSM more, and am currently trying to decide on OSMTrack or track n trail.

One thing that would be quite good is an OSM slippy map so that we could quickly check coverage in an area, if some is missing then start tracking and upload to OSM. I am not talking editing in the field (yet....) more a case of being able to quickly check whether I am wasting my time in an area if it has already been mapped.

The route-me framework might help (http://code.google.com/p/route-me/), or in 3.0 might you be able to tweak the new maps API to add OSM tile overlays?
