Sibity today announces Radar v.1.1, a new mobile application for Windows Phone 7 handsets to help users find their way back to the exact location where they started. Unique to Radar is the use of a compass that allows one to get directions even in places where Google Maps are not available.
Radar becomes a useful assistant every time when users visit unfamiliar places. For example, it can help to find the way back to a parked car, hotel, or a campsite if the user is lost in the woods. For this, it is necessary to mark the current location using the phoneâ€™s GPS. Once the place is marked, the phone owner can confidently go about his or her business, knowing that the starting point is saved. When it is time to go back, the application shows the compass screen with the current position of the user and direction back to the starting point. Additionally, the application shows the distance and amount of time the user has been away from the starting point.
Unique to Radar is the use of the compass rather than Google Maps to show the direction. This feature allows phone users to find their way back even in the most exotic and hard-to-find places where Google services and internet connection are not available. One more distinctive feature is support for the light theme of Windows Phone 7 that makes it easy for the user to see the screen of the application in bright daylight.
Radar v.1.1 can be purchased for 99 cents via the Microsoft Windows Phone Marketplace here.
Supported user interface languages include English and Russian. The application requires Windows Phone 7 smart phones and internet connection for product activation. For more information, visit www.sibity.com
