“Yeah! I am a cop! And they are tracking my GPS!” This is what John Triton (played by John Cena), the protagonist of the 2007 action movie, The Marine, said to scare the goons who had captured him. The goons panicked when they heard that.
This shows how important it is to know about Global Positioning System (GPS) and important as well as beneficial it can be to use it.
German app developer website IT Brauerie can understand it and that is why, it has developed a new app called GPS Memo, just for you.
How GPS Memo is helpful? You can save your location in the app to find it later. No matter whether, you are in a cafe, shop, your campsite or even in your car. Just save it with a note and see it on a list or map. The map will show you, your current next to your saved locations. This would give you an idea about the distance between the location you are currently and the location where you want to go.
Additionally, this app will also show you the details of your current location, including your geographic coordinates with altitude. You can also see your accuracy information.
Following are the important features of GPS Memo:
1. GPS Memo is universal App for iPhone and iPad and it can run perfectly on both iDevices. It has full High Definition (HD) resolution for the new iPad.
2. You can create the editable list with distances to your saved locations.
3. GPS Memo can show you the map with all locations.
4. The app features an augmented reality view with the locations around you.
5. The distance can be seen and checked in kilometer, miles and nautical miles.
6. This app features a compass with near locations.
In the new version 2.1 of GPS Memo, support for French language has been added. Many changes in the interface have been made to make the app user-friendly. You can also create a backup of locations you have saved in this app. A new update for this app has been announced by developer and it will come very soon. Those iPad users who have experienced the bug that causes the app to crash will have no reason to complain or whine once the new update comes out.
GPS Memo is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 3rd Generation iPod Touch, 4th Generation iPod Touch and iPad. It requires iOS 5.0 or later version.
This review has been written after obtaining GPS Memo from the app store via gift card and the app has been used on an iPad.
