The one and only reason (so far) to buy an iPhone 3G(S)

July 9th, 2009 | Tags: ,

When I originally looked at the specs of the iPhone 3G(S) I was not really blown away, but I was intrigued by one feature, the addition of the compass. I couldn’t quite picture how an app could utilise it, but the folks at acrossair have…really well by the looks of it!

They are currently awaiting approval by Apple for an application to guide you to the nearest London tube station, forget the fact that you don’t live in London and couldn’t care less about where the tube is. The clever bit is that the guidance is displayed via on-screen video and not only understands where you are, but also the direction you are facing…this is GPS 2.0 as far as I’m concerned!

The application is called “Nearest Tube”, and launches soon, priced at £1.19
