The Subspotting project captures, maps, and visualizes the available #cellphone reception along all 21 lines, 469 stations, and 660 miles of track of the New York City Subway.

It is the first project of its kind to capture the cell phone reception in the entire subway system to provide New Yorkers with information on where to make the next call or send the next text while underground.

I love the vision. I just don't know about the implementation of it. Will be hard for designers to make use of this design paradigm.

#UI designers. What is your preferred #share #icon?
And why iOS 7's icon is nicknamed the "uploader" - What do each of these symbols have in common? They are all trying to convey the exact same action - share! Sharing to a social network or via email is a ubiquitous action nowadays but designers have still not been able to reach a consensus on what symbol to use to represent it.

I think you should use whatever share icon the platform recommends, it's really jarring to see iOS icons showing up in Android and vice-versa.
