Smart Apps for Everyday Life

I. GPS Navigation & Maps by Sygic

Sygic presents GPS navigation and maps. It also allows users to download maps for offline usage. It is the most downloaded offline navigation application in the world. It is powered by TomTom maps.

It allows both turn-by-turn GPS navigation and route planning. There are region wise downloadable maps. The only drawback is you need good amount of storage in your smartphone to save this application and its data. Upgrading to premium allows you to get access to 3D maps, voice-guided navigation, speed limit warnings, lane assistant, online cameras and junction views with lane indicator arrows at complex interchanges.

A list of emergency numbers are also stored. A very interesting and helpful feature of this app is “Places of Interest - POI” which allows you to search for places to visit nearby based on categories like restaurants, hospitals, schools, recreation, petrol pump etc. There are also options for you to save places to favorites and save routes.
