[prMac.com] Wellington, United Kingdom - Flowing River Software are pleased to announce, Baby Room Finder 1.1.0, their first iPhone App which is now available for free worldwide download via Apple's App Store. Baby Room Finder helps parents to locate a nearby baby changing facility. Using the iPhone's mapping facilities, the app locates the user and uses the in-built Maps app to provide directions to the nearest baby changing facility.
"You know how it is? You're in a strange town, doing a spot of shopping when you realise there's a certain odour following you, but where can you change your baby? The answer is now clear; you can use Baby Room Finder", explains Philip Kirkpatrick, Managing Director for Flowing River Software.
Using the iPhone's built-in GPS location services, Baby Room Finder displays the user's current position on a Google map and shows all baby changing facilities within a half-mile radius with the familiar red mapping pins. All the usual map functions such as zooming in / out and centring the map on a location are also available.
Tapping on a red pin will show the location name and whether it's a unisex, male or female facility. Tapping the arrow then takes the user to the iPhone's built-in Maps app, which shows directions from the user's location to selected baby room. Baby Room Finder has been built as a community-style app, so new baby room locations can be added to a central database for other users' benefit. The trial has been running for about 6 weeks and there are over 100 locations for the UK. However, as users add their own locations this number will grow throughout the world. The app is available from the Apple App Store Free.
