As the media has pointed out often enough, there has been quite a shake-up and many discontented rumblings running among iOS fans about the new iOS 6.0 Apple-built maps app which took the place of Google maps. Apple is in the process of remedying this situation so that travelers to Florida don't end up in Alabama and that sort of thing elsewhere in the world!

Personally, I have not suffered one bit from maps although I have only been using it for small errands around town. However, I will add that I have not traveled cross-country nor globally with this app yet. Quick Route by Excited Pixel has produced a fine app that combines many excellent features together to form a nice navigation and maps iPhone app package. Check out the features below:

• Bike, Transit, Walking and Driving directions
• Search for addresses, businesses and other place you can find with Google
• Autoroute directions track where you are and automatically advance when you reach the end of a step
• Autoroute also indicates when you've lost your way and helps you "pull-to-reroute"
• Pull-to-reroute allows you to pull down on the directions panel at anytime to recalculate how to get to you destination
• Schedule when you want to leave or arrive, and select from multiple routing options

The transit directions are quite helpful and cover a range of transportation such as the subway, tube or tram. Quick Route has made it easier than ever for you to navigate through all manner of places keeping a clean and clear display screen. For instance, it provides you with directions which advance when you reach to the end of the previous step. Need re-routing because of a slight hiccup in your driving plans? No problem, Quick Route has you pull down the Title Bar (Directions Panel) to get you safely and swiftly back on track. Since this app is powered by Google Places, you can easily find anything you would search on Google, right here in Quick Route. I particularly like being able to select from multiple routes, and to schedule in advance when I need to leave or arrive at my destination. I would definitely recommend you take a look at this very worthwhile navigation app to enjoy all the features and accuracy it affords you in your travels.
COOL CONCLUSION: Start your business trip, vacation, or even your daily jaunt around town using Quick Route to get you where you need to go just as planned, with no unpleasant surprises!
