These exciting new additions allow users to do more with the search results they get from Localscope. With a single tap, users can switch into their favorite navigation app to get turn-by-turn directions to the places they are interested in. TomTom and Navigon were the first apps to be integrated with Localscope, and now users can pick from MotionX GPS Drive, Waze, or the Australia and New Zealand based MetroView.
Users of these excellent apps, could think of Localscope as an "expansion pack" to their favorite navigation app. According to Dhiraj Gupta, CTO, Cynapse, "Navigation apps like MotionX GPS Drive or Waze aren't primarily designed to help you search and discover what's around you. They're designed to reliably get you from point A to point B. Localscope can help. By detecting your installed navigation apps and allowing you to choose the app you want to navigate with, Localscope connects the dots between geo social search and navigation. It makes your navigation apps much more useful when you want to do both at the same time."
iPhone users who speak French, Italian, German, and Spanish also have something to be happy about. They can now use Localscope in their native language. It's a highly requested feature that makes the entire experience even easier. Cynapse plans to add support for more languages in the months to come.
Localscope received the "App of the Week" award in Australia and New Zealand and it is one of the top selling apps in the Navigation category.
