Driving is fun only when you know your way around the place. Traditionally, only people good with memorizing routes and roads have been considered good drivers. But, like always, technology has made life easier in yet another way. If you are an iPhone user, you no longer need to memorize routes because navigational apps have come to your rescue. Now you can enjoy stress free driving by using these apps to find your way without getting lost.
Navigational tools for the iPhone have become quite efficient over the past couple of months. However, some of these apps boast of superior firepower than the rest. Here’s a look at some of the best navigational apps for the iPhone, available today:
The best navigation app for iPhone is still Google Maps. Google provides users the convenience of a quick search, with several suggested routes with integrated traffic information. Users can even choose to listen to directions from a human-sounding voice assistant. The app acts like a true friend, genuinely willing to help you find your way when you are completely lost. It intelligently re-routes you if you take a wrong turn or make a mistake. And that’s not it! Google Maps also gives you access to public transit and provides you with walking directions. With so much to offer, Google Maps is, by far, the best navigation app for iPhone.
This user-reported app provides the most comprehensive real-time traffic updates and information. It also gives details of nearby accidents and cops trying to bust people for speeding.
