I think one of the things that makes PadMapper fun to play with (at least for me) is its responsive filter sliders – drag, and very quickly, you see the herd of markers thin out. Drag some more to try a slightly cheaper place, and you see SoHo (or your local very-desirable neighborhood) drop out completely. Then you play with it some more to find the least you can pay and still eke out a spot in that nice neighborhood.
So, I’m loathe to hide these awesome things from the sight of new users, for fear that they might never discover them and see what makes PadMapper cool. But it’s not very nice to come with a tiny screen and see half of it covered up with sliders, so tonight I changed it so that the filters would be hidden by default. Hopefully noobs will see the label and click the arrow to try them out, or they’ll be told about it if they were told about the site.
