Nokia’s HERE MAPS are now available in the Apple Store.Ã‚Â The HTML mapping app was previously available on the App Store, but was pulled following the release of iOS 7. Apple Users will be delighted to know that it is now back and it’s a native app this time.
The previous version of the HTML5 app had limited features and wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t optimized for iOS. This time the app isÃ‚Â built for iOS from the ground up.
With HERE for iOS you can store maps on your phone so that theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re always available and you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to wait for them to load or be dependent on signal. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not just highly reliable when youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re in your area but theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re particularly useful when travelling to avoid roaming charges.
You can save maps to your phone so that the whole HERE app can be put into Ã¢â‚¬Ëœoffline modeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and it wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t use any data. Even if your iPhone is in flight mode, you can still see where you are, search for places and navigate there on foot, by public transport or by car.
The all-inclusive route planner on HERE for iOS allows you to compare walking, transit and driving directions including an estimate of how long each will take you Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and all of this can be done in Ã¢â‚¬Ëœoffline modeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ too.
The offline car navigation on HERE for iOS provides full turn-by-turn voice guidance with spoken street names.
If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re on foot, HERE will guide you with unobtrusive turn-by-turn alerts and when youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re taking the train, HERE shows you where the station is, all the transfers youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll need to make and where to get off.
You can save places ahead of time with Collections, which you can create and view on any HERE app Ã¢â‚¬â€ iOS, Android, Windows, etc. Ã¢â‚¬â€ or on the web at here.com.
