Find Spot with iPhone + mapKit
Category: Map-Based Apps Mobile Apps | Industry: Property
We're very lucky to have an experience in developing an iPhone application with mapkit to some extent. From this project we've got much new knowledge and found out how far we can go using the original mapkit frameworks for iPhone. We've made many custom functions which didn't originally supported by the frameworks to go over the limitation of the frameworks.
This application is about finding some places nearby your location. Check the distance between your current location and the target location, moreover if you like the place you can just add it to your favorite list. You will also be able to transfer the place's contact info to your phone contact list.
And it's not just finding the places nearby your location; you will also be able to find places within certain location by using the search feature. Other than that, you're allowed to create point to point routing then integrate or open the route on Google Maps.
- Custom mapkit zoom level. We customize the default zoom level in order to display all of the user saved annotations
- Allowing users to add custom text and info into mapKit annotation. We also added custom button inside the annotation.
- Phone contact integration. Within one tap on the phone number, device phone mode activated and the user might either dial that number or save it to phone contact.
- Google Maps routing integration. Users pick two points, we calculate the route, and then show the result on the google maps.
