Technology literally brought the whole world inside the mobile phone, and this is best exemplified by the map2address application. Sure, we all have at one time used Google map to look for a certain location and to know just how to get there by looking at the nearest landmarks and streets nearby. What was needed is for us to know the address and then type it in and click search, and Google will point us the place!
Now, how about an application which does not necessarily need a specific address, but still can let its user decode a map and convert it to a plain location address. That's pretty amazing, right? This new application can be said to be a huge improvement on map applications. Yes, satellite map images are truly helpful in finding your way to that area, but what if there is a need to know the exact location of a geographical map image so that the user can communicate it to others? They cannot just tell them various directions, right? Of course, they would need to convey to them the exact address, and just provide them directions, should they need to know further.
The benefits of this application are many. For any user, in the event that they have stumbled into an unfamiliar neighborhood, they can instantly identify the address of where exactly he is at the moment so that he can use it when he asks for directions. For parents, they can shake off unnecessary apprehension of having their child being lost somewhere, because this app can help connect them should the child got someplace he is not familiar with, and the parents can immediately go and get him.
Now, you can understand why I have previously said that technology placed the world inside the mobile phone. This application is the literal translation of that declaration.
