I use this all the time and it is now my favorite Windows Live application. It's a sign that we've come a long way that I now consider printing out driving directions from the Web to be "old school".

I've been using Yahoo's mobile service for movie times but now it looks like I be needing it any more. Sweet. What are you waiting for? Head over to and install it on your phone today.
