This app will provide you with real time updates of your location if you activate the monitor feature and then press the "where am I" button. However, as another reviewer wrote below, the app sometimes fails to mention the name of a street onto which you have turned. In addition, the app is inconsistent at announcing streets that you have crossed. One truly revolutionary feature I would like to see added would be for the app to detect the direction of your movement and to announce the street you are approaching, and the street that is behind you. In other words, an audio summary that is equivalent to the "look around" function.
In addition, there does not appear to be any method of zooming in or zooming out on the map. I would really like to zoom in on the map so that only a few streets are visible at a time.
Finally, I think that adding audio tones to the map would make finding the lines that represent the streets a bit easier.
This app will let you put your finger down on a map & then Voice Over will read you The street name and Street Number’s as you move your finger. It will in that way let you explore what is around you, or explore what is around in another city. It will let you define favorite points of interest and alert you when you are near them. You can get real time monitoring info as you walk with this app, or ride in a car! Therefore you can learn a route people take while driving you somewhere, so you can tell others how to get to that same location. The developer is great and reports in an interview on the Candle Shore Podcast that he is going to work on improving the app by working on it to announce the name of Cross streets when you come to an intersection! So this is so worth it! AT $3.99 US it is some of the best money I’ve ever spent!
