New NYC Map App
iPhone users: a new app co-created by NYC&Co (New York City's official marketing, tourism and partnership organization) and local start-up Citymaps is now available on iTunes.
Yeah, we know, there are a lot of map apps for the iPhone. So, what's different about this one? Well, for one, it's a local effort made by New Yorkers and we all know that maps are better when they are made by locals. Plus, it allows the user to navigate New York City using easy-to-recognize names and logos. Plus, it finds nearby deals on Groupon, Living Social and Restaurants.com.
We gave it a try and it seems to work pretty well, although the map didn't reflect the very latest businesses on Fifth Avenue. Then again, who can keep up with the changes?
