[prMac.com] Shah Alam, Malaysia - Independent iPhone app developer, emirBytes is pleased to announced today that DirectTree 1.0 is available to download in the Apple's App Store. DirectTree (short for Directions Tree), is a multi purpose navigation app that makes use of the iDevices' magnetometer sensor. With it, a user will be able to create and customize their own compass that points to any locations.
DirectTree is an excellent idea because there are plenty of uses for it such as - a guide when one goes for a jungle trekking or outdoor treasure hunt games - by marking specific checkpoint positions on the map, and the app will show the heading and distance to the locations. Or it can be used just for fun, by adding locations of big cities, vacation places, wonders of the world, family member's houses, and so on.
According to the developer, each compass group in the application is called Tiers and a user can have up to 10 locations installed in a Tier, however a user can have an infinite number of Tiers. The developer commented, "We are proud with the birth of the app. The idea for the app came when I was out at a nearby town and saw a multiple arrow signs on a pole and thought it would be cool to have those "directions tree" as an app. I am using the app myself. Right now I have about six Tiers on it- it is fun to know that California is 8612.6miles from me!"

* Advanced location search tool powered by Google Maps API
* Arrow theme and background are changeable
* Distance units supported - km & miles
