Apple iPhone + Subway Map

As you know you can take advantage of the iPhone's thumbnail system for your photos but what you need to know is that, you can do the same with your city's subway map! Basically this map includes few sliced images from the actual subway map in such a way that you can pan across the map with the forward and back buttons. Subway maps usually are available as a PDF file but navigating the few hundred kilo bytes PDF file on the iPhone is very slow yet (beside the connection!). Also some of the disadvantages by using these kind of maps is that sometimes they have so many details and a little bit complicated! And if you have low res images you can’t really use the map (distorted and pixilated images).

I just collected couple of links from different websites! You can download these packages below and upload the images to your iPhone and use them the same way you browse your pictures.


Other Option

Filemarks let you store high res images, text files, and PDFs on an iPhone! There aren’t any good ways to do this with the built in Apple tools - you can use iPhoto to copy images, but they’ll be scaled down and become unreadable. If you want to read a pdf on your phone, you have to either email it to yourself or browse to it in Safari. Filemarks store your file’s data inside a bookmark. When you want to view your file, you open the bookmark in Safari on the iPhone and you can view it, whether your phone is online or offline.

Basically Filemarks let you store much higher quality images than the built in photo application. Check it out,

Thank you

Alexander Shundi

14 x 20 inches
Color pencils on paper

Alexander Shundi was my professor at NYIT. I really enjoyed his lectures and I have to say he is one of the best! He was born in Correggio (Reggio Emilia), Italy on May 19, 1944. Lived in Parma, Italy until 1957, when his family moved to the United States. Alex lives and works in a converted 1850's church with his wife Elizabeth Hill, also a painter, and has two children, Aramis, and Siena.

Alexander Shundi's works are in many public and private collections in the United States and abroad. He has been the subject of many articles in news papers and magazines including: Art News, Art in America, Arte Moderna, Hartford Magazine, Duchess County Magazine, The New York Times, Il Redentore, The Boston Globe, The Bridgeport Post, Apotheosis, The New Haven Register, South West Magazine, Ridgefield Times, Pasatiempo, Westport Bulletin, The Lakeville Journal, Harlem Valley Times, Waterbury Republican, Miami Herald, Litchfield County Times, Nimrod International Journal, The Country and Abroad Magazine, Millerton News, and La Gazzetta di Parma. Alex spent seven summers racing “off the road” vehicles in international rallies throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. He has traveled for twenty years exploring the American Southwest, with particular focus on both ancient and current Pueblo culture, art, and mythology.
