Localscope, a social data and search-engine powered GPS + Navigation app gets the “App of the Week” spot in the Australia and New Zealand App Store. The app also lands a coveted space in Apple’s “College Bound” apps for college students section.
March 22, 2011 – Mumbai, India – Australians and New Zealanders have taken a shining to a new local navigation app called Localscope, and they aren’t the only ones. Apple seems to agree. The app got the “App of the Week” spot in both countries, and the developers (Cynapse, based out of Mumbai) couldn’t be more thrilled. It’s the icing on the cake after months spent perfecting their creation.
LocalscopeLocalscope puts an intuitive twist on GPS, pulling search results together to give users a handy overview of what’s available right next door. With a few swipes and flicks, you can use Google, Bing, Foursquare, and Twitter results to find restaurants, gas stations, hotels, gyms, and everything else in your local area.
College students who have just moved to a new town are likely to get a lot of use out of Localscope. Those first few months can be a bit disorienting. It’s nice to have a crisp and clean picture of where everything is, especially when you’re in an unfamiliar place. If you get a late night ice cream craving, and you have no idea where to get some, just whip out the app. Localscope is now a part of Apple’s “College Bound” collection in the App Store.
Localscope is also in the “New And Noteworthy” section of the App Store in over 40 countries and the “What’s Hot” section in 30 countries. With heartwarming comments like the following, it’s no wonder why.
“This is probably the most used app on my iPhone, nice user interface, has every bit if info needed + more!”
Cynapse wants to thank Localscope’s users and Apple for all the support they’ve gotten recently. This achievement wouldn’t be possible without it. They’re excited to keep improving upon their next generation GPS + Navigation app, and there will be many more updates to come.
