Learn about places around with WikiPlaces 3.70 for iOS

By on Apr 4, 2014 at 2:32 am

Auckland, New Zealand – Independent software developer, Vitaly Pronkin today is pleased to announce the release of WikiPlaces 3.70 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices. The WikiPlaces application provides access to Wikimapia – a collaborative mapping project with the aim to describe every location in the world. It currently has over 20 million places annotated all over the world, millions of which also have detailed description, photos and user comments. You will be amazed how much interesting and surprising you will learn about places you seemed to know.

WikiPlaces can display Wikimapia data in different languages and two presentation styles, and has all standard features you would expect from a mapping application, including search (by address, coordinates, place name or ID), bookmarking and user location tracking.

Version 3.70 brings several important changes and new features:

New sharing feature allows to share links to specific place or location. Will share a link to open WikiPlaces application as well as a link to Wikimapia or mapping website for devices without WikiPlaces installed. Of course it’s also possible to manually compose links utilising the new wikiplaces:// scheme.

Bookmarks improved with ability to rename existing bookmarks and specify custom name when adding bookmarks, and with support for bookmarking arbitrary map locations as well as Wikimapia places.

New details view is available for arbitrary map locations (ie., when you long-touch any point on the map) with options to view address, copy coordinates, add bookmark and share – just as for Wikimapia places.

Other changes include improved user interface, especially on iPad, ability to navigate to Wikimapia place by specifying its ID in the search field, and various bug fixes.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch or iPad
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 6.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
WikiPlaces 3.70 is available exclusively on the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad free of charge in the Navigation category and is ad-supported. Advertisement can be removed via in-app purchase.
