Next Stop GPS is a brand new travel tool for helping get from A to B, and back again. It’s the perfect app for commuters, travellers and daytrippers, to name just a few.
Being a GPS-based alarm and locational compass in one app, it will point you in the right direction, guide you on your way, and alert you when you’re almost there. It’s a sort of navigational swiss army knife for your iphone.
The Perfect App For:
•Not missing your bus, train of ferry stop (it can even wake you up!)
•Warning you of a motorway turnoff
•Holding a bunch of sightseeing locations when on holiday
•Remembering where your hotel is, or anything else for that matter
•Finding where you parked the car at a big sports event
•Get you back to your campsite at a music festival
•Check the taxi you’re in is going the right direction!
Other interesting facts
•Built in Address/Location Search.
•Unlimited number of locations stored.
•Crow flies distance to any location on earth displayed.
•iPod music can be played while alarm is set.
•Simple to use graphical targeting interface
•Perimeter settings (20-500 meters)
•Loud alarm noises
As a commuter there are many reasons why you could miss your stop. Examples are:
•A long day at work, after-work drinks or out partying – you might nod off. Stick in some headphones and you WILL wake up.
•On holiday or a new route – you know where you’re going but not when to get off the bus.
•A great book you’re reading or album you’re listening to – you’re distracted.
•You’re driving on the motorway and could easily miss you turn-off.
None of these will ever make you miss your stop again – if you buy and use this app!
To listen to music, you must start the music in iPod, then open the alarm and leave it active.
Next Stop relies on GPS data from the iPhone. If you travel underground it may not be able to receive reliable GPS data until you reach the surface.
The alarm will not make a noise (and probably not wake you up) if you have the manual ‘mute’ control enabled on the phone.
