We knew they would do it
finally eventually. GMAP, with Enfour, have launched a fantastic bi-lingual Tokyo map application on the iTunes App Store. Find!TOKYO is perhaps ‘the’ most comprehensive location tool available for the metropolis, featuring thousands of custom designed maps for the iPhone and iPod touch screen.
The application includes fully scalable Tokyo train/subway map, interior maps of major stations, area maps and a detailed directory with maps of hotels, cinemas, parks, temples, shrines, etc. Along with the maps, many locations are tagged with photos and relevant information for use as visual guides or to learn about the locations. The content is stored inside the application so there is no need to access the Internet; ideal for the iTouch and overeas iPhone users.
There is a 600 yen one-time fee for Find!TOKYO, which includes future version updates, so you’ll never get lost in Tokyo again.. a killer deal at twice the price!
Users can tap hotspots for more information, pinch zoom, drill down to specific maps and photos of popular areas. If you can’t find the map you are looking for, you will be able to access the GMAP website that is optimized for the app clients. You will be able to just type in the name of the location into the GMAP search box to access the map. If the location still cannot be found, a request can be made to map the location. Congrats to all involved on this labor-of-love project..
