We wrote about Citymaps last December and identified its unique focus on commercial businesses. The "logo maps" made the app look and feel quite unique. Now, a new iOS app boasts features that make it more of a Google Maps competitor.
The new CityMaps iOS app (iTunes link) features:
- vector-based maps (OSM)
- details of more than 15 million businesses in the U.S
- emphasis on social features (create and share maps of the best places to go)
- driving, walking, and public transit directions (source? unknown)
- bubbles on the map reflect businesses social media activity
- oblique views
Next up: Android app (eight weeks away), browser-based version and worldwide coverage.
