    I was at the event in Toulouse over the weekend and I discovered a new nerdy thing about prime.

    At the moment you can run google maps as a picture within ingress. You can test this by selecting a destination in google maps, going back to your homepage and then invoking ingress. You should see Google maps as a picture on the ingress page.

    This is very convenient if you want to play ingress while maps is guiding you to a new destination.

    In theory, you should be able to select maps and return it to full screen and then return to ingress again. But if you try to do this Ingress crashes. As I understand it the current version of Ingress is not fully compatible with this feature in Android.

    But when Andrew tried out this functionality in his test version Prime it seemed to work smoothly. (At least the one time we tried it anyway..)

    So that’s something new learned.
