Thanks for hacking on MapFasten!

A couple of comments.

  1. simple-view.html is deprecated. Does it actually still work? We've replaced it with a UI that uses client-side MVC (backbone) to improve the user experience, and that's where the new UI features will show up. All the action these days is in the not-very-creatively-named backbone.html

  2. The new UI depends on underscore.js, so we've been using underscore's _.bind() function for this purpose. It uses the browser's native function.bind() if available, and its own implementation otherwise. I'd rather not have two different .bind() implementations in the code base, so can you check to see if the underscore version works on iOS?


Hi Ted. The I realize the main application uses backbone. This file is the one that is used to render the "view.html" provided in the standalone tar.gz file that gets generated during an "export". For example, go here:

You will notice that the view.html is not correct, but will render OK. If you try it on an iPad 1, it will not work. The view.html is a minimalistic html file that only relies on Google Maps (doesn't have backbone nor underscore.js). This fix continues with that philosophy and only adds a custom bind when the underlying web renderer (in this case Webkit on iOS 5.1.1) doesn't have it.

Also, FYI, I have this other pull request geocam/geocamUtilWeb#2

Ah, yes. My mistake. I had it confused with overlay-view.html, which we've already removed.
