The first app with a compass aligned
Exiting the subway at an unfamiliar stop? Instead of accidentally walking a block in the wrong direction to orient yourself, launch the Uptown app even before youre outside and youll know which way youre headed as soon as you step out onto the street.
Since it doesnt utilize the GPS or have to connect to the network youll experience no delay in getting your bearings.
And, when youre off the grid in Brooklyn or beyond, just tap the arrow button to alternate between Magnetic North and Manhattans Uptown/Downtown.
Requires the iPhone 3GS for its built in magnetometer.
