skobbler Launched New Version of iOS World Bestselling App, GPS Navigation
Dec 10 13
skobbler launched GPS Navigation, a completely new version of the worldwide bestselling GPS Navigation app, that is optimized for iOS 7. GPS Navigation builds upon the company's already impressive feature repertoire with the inclusion of an intuitive travel guide, hyperlocal search, and breakthrough mapping technology provided by skobbler's groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind NGx map engine. Interested iOS users can download this newly redesigned standout navigation, mapping and travel resource for $0.99. Powered entirely by data from the OpenStreetMap -a free and editable map of the world built by over 1 million voluntary contributors and map enthusiasts -- GPS Navigation is the only mapping and navigation solution on iOS that delivers true 'hybrid' functionality, allowing users to switch between online or optional offline access through in-app purchases of downloadable maps, regardless of location or cellular connection. Paired with skobbler's newly revamped, one-of-a-kind NGx map engine -arguably the most advanced mapping technology on the planet -GPS Navigation provides users with the core functions any user craves from a mobile mapping service through fluid, reliable and high-performance map implementation under any circumstances, online or offline. Offline functionality -which is unlimited upon the purchase of downloadable maps -- allows for fast and reliable results using only a device's GPS receiver rather than a network connection, meaning turn-by-turn navigation, alternate routing and various search capabilities are provided in full without a data connection. In addition to its top-notch mapping flexibility and detail, GPS Navigation now also features comprehensive in-app travel guide and hyperlocal search via Wikitravel - which provides users with over 90,000 pages of worldwide travel information in the English language alone - and TripAdvisor integrations, meaning users can always stay in tune with their surroundings. GPS Navigation is available for a one-time purchase of $0.99 via the iTunes App Store. Users will also receive frequent updates for free.
