[ANN] Pin in the Map - "tinyurl for maps" rails app

Hi there,

A little while ago we launched Pin in the Map (http://pininthemap.com),
a rails application which allows you to easily mark a spot on a map,
attach some text to it, and get a simple link to pass around. It’s
basically tinyurl for maps.

It’s proved useful for organising after-work drinks, meetings, weddings
plus a whole variety of other things.

http://pininthemap.com. Hope you like it. Please let me know of any
suggestions you might have to improve it.

Cheers
Chris

Thanks Ezra, glad you liked it. Anything particular that you
liked/disliked?

I like it! It would be nice to have multiple pins, I was looking for
something like this when trying to find apartments - all the locations
I was driving to would fit on the same map, but I had to have seperate
google maps to show the address of each one

I’d strongly suggest adding “directions to this location”
functionality so that when you share the spot, a guest or customer
could readily find their way to it.

Chris-

I like the idea a lot. And the nice simple interface. I like being

able to tag a location and send it as a link to someone else.

Hi Zack,

Funnily enough, that’s been planned for a little while and I’m just
starting to implement it today :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback.
