better zoom controls

I would love to see better zoom controls inline with those found in google maps and others. currently I can only zoom in with a double tap. There is no easy way to zoom out as far as I can tell. Common now on other mapping applications is to double tap + hold and then drag your finger up/down to zoom out/in. Another improvement that would make the app easier to use is to move the "+" and "-" controls down towards the bottom. one handed, i don't think anyone can reach the top left corner of their phone screen(!). the OSM+ does a nice job of keeping the +/- buttons towards the bottom (and they are larger). making it an option to be on the left or right side would be great to accommodate left/right handed people.
