Nokia has just announced yesterday at San Francisco that they will be releasing their latest maps app for the iPhone in the coming weeks and it will be called ‘Here’.
We’re making HERE Maps available in the Apple App Store: iOS users can more easily access our rich mapping experience with a single tap on their home screen. The app has been developed with the same HTML5 technology that powers the mobile web and is therefore very versatile and optimized for mobile use.
With HERE Maps for iOS you can get smart directions to navigate your way around town, whether you’re driving, walking or taking public transportation, so let’s have a closer look at all the features available.
So basically with HERE, users can get:
Collections: Save and share places that are meaningful to you, and take them with you anywhere, anytime, on any device.
Explore around you: See what’s nearby in a flash.Explore and discover places near your location – easier then ever before!
Real 3D experience: Explore the world without leaving your living room. All you need is a web browser and wanderlust!
… and many more features. You can view them here
Nokia has also introduced LiveSight, a technology based on a highly accurate, 3D map of the world, which provides the most precise and intuitive augmented reality experience. Watch the demo in the video below.
