1 July 2014 — PixelEspresso releases MapNap version 1.3, an update to its easy-to-use geolocation-based alarm app designed for the iPhone and iOS7, which introduces spoken arrival announcements.
MapNap makes commuting less stressful for sleepy, playing, reading, chatting, or otherwise preoccupied commuters who don't want to miss their station or stop, especially when it is dark outside. MapNap uses iPhone's GPS in turn-by-turn driving mode to watch the user's current location and notify the user when geofence around the tracked destination has been crossed. This is much more reliable than using ordinary geofencing apps like Reminders, which notify the user only after a certain amount of time has passed since crossing the geofence.
MapNap is available in the App Store worldwide free of charge: http://appstore.com/mapnap.
