4 Features We Want to See From the Apple Watch 2

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 15th, 2015

I’ve had an iPhone since they first launched back in 2008. When the original first came out, it had a ton of potential but very little had been realised at that point. Heck, it didn’t even have the App Store! So excuse me while I mutter about how the Apple Watch will be great one day, but probably not until its second hardware revision has been released. Following that logic, here are a few ideas of exactly what we’d love to see the second time around.

Apple Watch Fitness - Why Apple's New Smartwatch May Not Live Up to Expectations

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 13th, 2015

The end of this month will see the release of the Apple Watch, a product that was officially announced late last year that has many people speculating about how having an extension to your phone that you actually wear will change how we operate. As someone that tries to withhold judgement about products until we know what they are - rather than what they promise to be - I have held off on figuring out how the Apple Watch could or should fit into my lifestyle.

Recently though, early reviews of the watch have come out and - upon reading them - I've been pretty disappointed. As a runner that enjoys the outdoors, I was hoping the Apple Watch would incorporate all of the things I would need to abandon all of my current running tech (namely an iPod and Garmin GPS watch) but the Apple Watch's current form just doesn't seem up to the task. Here's why.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The CoPilot navigation app has received an update that brings a whole bunch of new features.

Version 9.6 unveils the new CommuteMe feature, which looks to learn the user's daily commute and then provides live traffic and arrival estimation info on the fly. It also gives users the ability to add a point of interest as the next stop without altering the final destination, as well as drag & drop functionality that allows for trip editing and improved POI searching.

There is also an update to the North American map database.

Parent company ALK Technologies consumer business vice president David Quinn mentioned the company's mission in a press release. "CoPilot v9.6 introduces unique adaptive learning technology and smarter route searching to make your daily drive more predictable and less stressful," he said. "It's the latest step in our mission to make every journey easier and more efficient through advanced navigation technology".

We had a look at CoPilot a while back; it is available on the App Sore for $19.99.

• NEW CommuteMe™ feature learns your preferred daily commute and provides real-time traffic* and ETA info along that personal route you love. You know the one that gets you to work and home for dinner on time!

• NEW ability to add a POI as your next stop without altering your final destination

• NEW Drag & Drop trip editing to easily move stops up or down within your trip

• IMPROVED POI search on your route to find the closest POIs and save time by avoiding driving too far out of your way

• YOU ASKED FOR IT so we made it simple to change your CoPilot ID (email address) directly within CoPilot, just go to MyCoPilot > My Account

• ADDED the option to navigate to Decimal Minutes Coordinates

• NEW! Free map update – In addition to an update for our maps of North America, CoPilot now includes the complete street-level map of Puerto Rico for reliable offline routing and guidance.

Sygic, the leader in GPS navigation, has a new way for parents to track their kids. Family: GPS Tracker lets parents view their kids location in real-time to make sure they are safe and not moving into dangerous situations. It also comes just in time for Halloween, so parents will know where their smartphone-carrying kids are located throughout a night full of trick-or-treating.

“The proliferation of smartphone ownership across all age groups means that parents now have a great new way to ensure their children’s safety”, Sygic CEO Michal Štencl said in a press release. “We were able to apply the knowledge and experience we’ve gained from making a first-class navigation app in order to build Family: GPS Tracker, and our new version gives parents more control, with cool features like challenges that makes the app fun for kids as well.”

TomTom U.S. & Canada Updated with New and Enhanced Features

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: TOO MUCH :: Read Review »

One of the App Store's go-to GPS apps, TomTom, has received an update to its Canada and U.S. iteration that adds some new features and updates a few road maps.

Among the changes are an improves search function, maps that have been updated to include more up-to-date maps to account for road changes, premium voices, a Stop Navigation button that will pause guidance and put the app into sleep mode (and pick up where it left off), and a new background feature (which you can choose to opt out of) that sends info to TomTom about how you use the app in order to improve user experience. It's also important to note that this update affects device compatibility and it will no longer work on the iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2nd Gen, and any device using iOS 4.X or earlier.

If you use TomTom on your iOS device, and meet the criteria for compatibility, it's definitely worth checking out!

Or perhaps you want to do a little last-minute shopping before everything closes. Wandering around haphazardly can be a gamble, but what Closy offers an easier way to go about it.

Whether it's through a keyword search or simply the iOS device's GPS and a set radius, Closy will locate nearby stores and eateries, then tell you if they're currently open. It's just that simple. No more trips to shops that are already closed!
