This app uses voice recognition software to help you find directions, addresses, business reviews or local traffic. You simply choose whether you’d like to search with Google, the yellow pages, Yelp or Traffic.com. Once you do that, a large blue button will appear on the screen. Then you hold up the phone and speak into the mic.
Sometimes the phone will recognize what you have to say, and sometimes it is way off. It helps if you speak very loudly and slowly. Then you get another blue button to choose either the address or business you’re looking for. You are then redirected to the respective website, except in the case of Google Maps, where you’re directed to the Google Maps app for the iPhone.
With Google Maps, you’re taken to a screen that gives you a picture of a map with two virtual pushpins in it, one to represent your current location, which the phone finds with its GPS, and one to represent the address you searched for. You can then get directions, see traffic and add additional pins to further cement where you’re going. It also tells you the travel time by car, by bus or on foot.
I think this app is pretty helpful for those who are averse to typing on the iPhone and it has an interesting concept. However, there is no way to correct the app if it misunderstands your voice, which it does about 50 percent of the time. Instead, you have to exit out and start completely over. Unless you really cannot stand putting your fingers to iPhone’s tiny keyboard, it’s probably better to just go to each individual website.

GPS Navigation App that I use on a regular basis. This Application has helped my more than any other App I have purchased from iTunes App Store, When traveling to the remote western part of Maryland on a atv trip, I found my truck had used more gas than if I where on normal flat roads around my house, So I needed to find gas somewhere and pretty fast. I simply opened The App click on the wrench for services and scrolled down to Gas Stations, Than clicked Where I Am Now and bam there was 5 Gas Stations around me on the map marked with a pin. I clicked the pin of the closest Gas Station and than clicked Direction To Here & That’s it I found the Gas Station and was good to go. I had bought this App just for this trip and boy did it save me, But I find myself using it everyday for one thing or another.
This GPS App works off the Maps Application that is on your iPhone running 2.0 firmware. But it makes it so much easier to find places when using this Application from iTune App Store with a few clicks you can find Businesses, Services, Shopping, Attractions, Government Offices and so much more all in the current location that you are in without having to type in way points, this can be done on the go while driving. Once you have located the place you want to go to simply click get direction to here and the app will give you detailed directions and you can see it on the map.
My Overall Rating of this Navigation Application is Remarkable, I would recommend this App to everyone, I use this in my everyday life to find Businesses, and Services around the location I am in. Well Worth $0.99
