CityMaps, An App That Displays Stores’ Logos For Easy Navigation
By Syafiqah Omar, 14 Mar 2012
Recently launched, CityMaps is a website and iPhone application that maps stores and locations around the city by displaying their logos on the screen.
CityMaps currently displays visual maps for New York City, San Francisco and Austin.
The app also integrates Twitter feeds, Facebook updates and Foursquare check-ins.
Besides checking locations, subway timings and deals on the go, users can also keep track of their friends’ whereabouts.
"The thesis behind what we're doing is pretty simple," said Elliot Cohen, co-founder and CEO of CityMaps.
"The web is social and cities are social, but the online mapping world and online maps have not really evolved much for the last ten years or so. The maps that we use really were created for directions and navigations."
The app is available for free on the App Store.
Cohen hopes to expand it to 25-30 cities by the end of the year.
