Bing Maps iOS SDK: TileLayer samples

    Soru

  • Hi everybody,

    we are currently evaluating the Bing Maps iOS sdk for use for one project.

    After using the AJAX v7 control for a while now, we expected the iOS sdk class hierarchy to be somewhat similar; unfortunately that's not the case...

    Does anybody know of a good set of sample for displaying a TileLayer, EntityCollections, etc...?

    Thanks!

  • Unfortunately the iOS SDK has limited functionality. TileLayers are not supported. That said there is a much better way to create Bing Maps applications for mobile. The Bing Maps v7 control is supported on iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry 6. It has also been found to work on Kindle fire. You can use Bing Maps v7 control to develop your application. To create a native app simply use PhoneGap (http://phonegap.com/). One huge benifit of this approach is that you can target multiple mobile devices using one code base. Performance of this approach in many cases has found that the Bing Maps v7 control runs faster than the built in maps on mobile devices.
