Clarification: A free little program for you to try

I'm an information geek. I love researching things, finding demographics data, looking at population and income information for a region, etc. Recently, I considered moving and found myself having to visit multiple sites to find such information and I thought, there has to be a better way. So, I created a little program called MyGeoCoder.

The program, which you can download for free here, allows you to type in a full address, or just a city and state, and immediately get a satellite view, map view, and population statistics on the area. It's not pretty (I am not a UI designer) but it works well and I thought I'd take the time to share it with all of you.

So check it out and send me feedback. I'd like to make it better over time and make it more useful to those who love information. What do you like? What do you not? What could be better? What works? What doesn't? That sort of thing.
