Disclaimer: I did design this app, so am very biased :)
However, it IS cool.
iPoint2 is super simple, all it does is allow you to plot locations, and then, wherever you are, it will point to any of your saved locations and tell you the direction and distance you need to go to get there. We kept the interface suitably simple so it doesn’t get in the way of quickly adding points or viewing one. The only extra cool thing we added, was the ability for you to take a picture or upload one of each place, which the compass overlays. This personalises each of your places and can provide a visual reference for those of us who like that sort of thing :)
BUT what’s cool is how you can use it.
One of the initial thoughts is for all those praying to Mecca – it’s a very simple way of always knowing which direction to face. Or your favorite fishing spot, where your car is parked, where your best friend lives on the other side of the world…
What’s even cooler, is that as people have started to use it, they have come up with their own benefits. As this AppShopper review writes:
“Say you’re vacationing in an exotic location and want to head back to your hotel but also meander around a little on the way to see the sights. Or you’re exploring a large park and want to keep track of where you are in relation to the park’s entrance. iPoint2 is perfect for these types of situations and many others.”
I love it and highly recommend spending $1.99 and getting yourself pointing in the right direction.
For anyone who’s interested in their own mobile app, iPoint2 was developed by the geniuses at Able Technology
