iTunes apps store is flooded with loads of GPS apps that offer varying features and options. This variety of GPS apps normally confuses users about which apps to go for, because some of them might be useful and some are just crap.
Today, I will be highlighting certain very useful GPS apps for iPhone that are easy-to-use and above all, free of cost. If you happen to be an avid traveler and own an iPhone, then I will recommend that you should give these free GPS apps a try. Here is a brief review of them:
This app is simply amazing; it’s basically a no-frills GPS that works smoothly. The app’s interface is simple with no complex features embedded, locations can be easily tagged by clicking on the option Make Current position New Way point.
Waypoints can also be added manually. You can download Free GPS app from iTunes app store for free.
If you are a geocacher, then GPS-Logger is the perfect GPS iPhone app for you. We normally take a lot of pictures of stuff around us, but we tend to forget to tag the location of these pictures. What makes GPS-Logger unique is that it allows users to go back and give coordinates to photos that have been taken with an un-smart camera.
You can connect pictures to any specific location and also you can add-in the date on which they were taken. GPS Logger is available as a free download from Apple App store.
Waze is yet another useful GPS app for iPhone that offers loads of cool features. Basically, it’s a social networking-based GPS app that allows users to share their location details and stuff like traffic block reporting with other Wazers.
You can also locate nearby Waze users in real-time and interact with them. The app’s social networking shade is that you can chat or connect with other Waze users and it also allows map pinning of Wazers. Another unique feature of this app is that you can report traffic blocks to other Wazers either via texts or by uploading pictures.
Though there are hundreds of GPS apps available on App store, I think these are the best ones to start off. Do try them and let us know that whether they were of any use or not?
