Electronic Pushpin Map
Internet permission is required for the map overlay.
People often use a geographic map and mark off countries they've visited with a pushpin. Besides places visited, there are also countless reasons to mark off locations on a map: U.S. states you've vacationed in, countries you've played an online game against, etc. This is a mobile, electronic implementation of this map.
There are a few key points.
1. You can name your map whatever you want, i.e. Vacationed, Apps, Games, etc.
2. Your map must take on one of two types: States in the USA or Countries of the World.
3. You can "insert" a red, blue, or green pushpin in your designated locations.
4. You can create any number of these maps.
In other words, you can create a "Vacationed" map of type "Countries of the World." Then, you can insert a green pushpin for countries you've already vacationed in and a red pushpin for countries you want to visit. You can also create another map called "Road Trip" of type "States in the USA." Then, for this map, you can insert a red pushpin for states you've driven through. This implementation is fairly flexible. Hopefully you can come up with some of your own use cases!
It should be fairly self-explanatory to use. The only tricky part is that you must long-click your location in order to set the pin. A simple short click does nothing.
