India: MapmyIndia has released the advanced navigation app – NaviMaps for the iOS platform. The Android version launched two months earlier has already been very popular.
As a 'freemium' app, it allows users to pay a small fee to enjoy full Pro-guidance features, which, however, is more than compensated by the considerable savings made by not having to pay any data charges, as the app is offline. However, this is hardly the case with various other free navigation apps on offer where the user ends up paying heavy internet charges.
The app features automatic traffic based re-routing and real-time journey updates on Facebook along with a responsive and superfast experience. 3D & 2D landmarks bundled with panoramic view are amongst its other key features.
