[prMac.com] Davie, Florida - Cool Sun Software today is proud to announce the release of My Way Back 2.1, an update to their popular navigation application for iOS devices. My Way Back was designed to help you get back to your starting location as quickly and easily as possible. You simply record the spot you want to find your "Way Back" to later, and the application will get you back there using your device's on-board location and directional sensors.
New in My Way Back 2.1 is support for iBeacons. Put an iBeacon in your car (or any other location), and when you leave the iBeacon's proximity its location will be stored on your device automatically even if the My Way Back application is not running. Enjoy the peace of mind of always knowing where your car is without needing to remember to add its location to the application.
Using an innovative augmented reality display or a top down view, the application will show you where your desired spot is in relation to your current location indicating direction and distance. This isn't an aid for navigation when driving, but it helps you find your way back to locations not on roads or after walking short distances. Some examples:
* Find your "Way Back" to your car after spending time at a mall, theme park, sports venue, etc.
* Find your "Way Back" back to your hotel after taking a walk in a new city when traveling
* Find your "Way Back" to a meeting location after separating from your friends
* Using iBeacons you can automatically store locations even when the My Way Back application is not running
* You can store multiple locations to find your "Way Back" to
* You can take a picture of the area you wish to find your "Way Back" to
* When the device is held upright, you can view an innovative augmented reality view overlaid on the device's live camera image to find your "Way Back"
* When the device is not upright, you can view a top down view over a map showing your current location and the location you want to find your "Way Back" to
Optimized for iOS7 and iOS8, My Way Back version 2.1 streamlines the user interface and adds support for the new resolutions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.
* iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 6, 6 plus
* Requires iOS 7.1 or later
* 2.0 MB
