With way•, you can automatically send: - your actual position, so you can be reached by your friends - calm down your family to be at destination - inform that that you are coming home or to the office.
- Do you want to inform your family that you've reached your position?
- Do you want to tell your friends in which pub, restaurant or address you are?
- Are you lost on little streets and call someone to help you?
- Do you want to inform of your arrive?
Simple and intuitive, way• is you best parter during everyday trips.
Add a few waypoints by putting a pin on the map (or by taping in the address) and way• will automatically keep your friends up to date about your progress with a push notification.
Just remember to have some friends in your list by trading contacts with bluetooth from inside the application and enable the destination to watch for in the waypoints menu and way• will take care of the rest for you.
way• is smart: you can close and reopen the application keeping the last status. This way you can open way• to send notifications even at destination, without needs to keep it always alive.
And now with iOS 4 if you have and iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or third generation iPod touch you can even close way• and it will run on background.
If the default settings don't suit you, then choose a different radius, a more accurate GPS signal precision and, of course, the name of your device as will be seen by your friends. You can also set the defaul region to show on the map at application start.
- Push notifications can be sent only with an active internet connection and exclusively between devices with Locifier already installed.
- Contacts sharing with bluetooth is not available on iPhone 2G and first generation iPod touch due to hardware limitations.
- way• uses A-GPS signal on iPhone and WiFi triangulations on iPod touch to get the most accurate position: walls and large obstacles between the device and the horizon may compromise the accuracy.
- Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
