[prMac.com] Beaverton, Oregon - GammaPoint LLC, the leader in mobile applications development, has released a voice guided transit app for iPhone users. Move On 1.0, designed for use on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, uses GPS and Google Transit APIs to efficiently plan and map trips for more than 500 worldwide public transit agencies. The new iPhone app comes on the heels after Apple removed transit options in their latest iOS6 maps.
"What makes this app so powerful and different from other apps is that it gives voice directions to travelers while on the go. Travelers can use the app for route planning and then start the trip. They don't need to keep looking at the phone as app will announce when to get off a bus or to make turn while walking. Travelers can securely place their devices in pocket or purse," said Amit Jain the co-founder and creator of Move On App. "It's great for students, people who use public transportation. It uses GPS to show your location on a map in real-time and offers accurate route and schedule information from all transit operators who have their transit data available on Google."
The app provides trip planning with custom departure and arrival times. Users can also search for nearby POIs powered by Google Places API or pick a contact address all through within the app. App also maintains a history of previously searched addresses to make it easier for the travelers to select an address. The Move On app complements new iOS6 maps and can be directly launched from the default new maps app. App Customers are able to provide feedback on the new app by clicking on the "Contact" button to send an email to GammaPoint team.
