The Map to New York City. VanDam`s NYC StreetSmart is the first map in a series of immersive 4D mApps to New York which lets users fly through the city and become part of the map. Features the latest cartography with clear and easy-to-read maps. Zooms with lightening speed. Works and searches off-line so neither a Wi-Fi nor a web connection are needed. Locates you on the map and shows the direction you`re headed. What`s the fourth dimension? Fun.
VanDam`s NYC StreetSmart sports a highly curated attractions guide to the top 120 sights from Manhattan`s Meat Market to Brooklyn`s BoCoCa neighborhood and beyond. This guide knows what to include and what to leave out. Included are top attractions--such as museums, performing arts venues, landmarks and notable architecture.
By Josh Wenger I`ve downloaded tons of NYC maps and this is by far the best one. Highlights all the city`s points of interest and even has a subway map. Very interactive - I highly recommend it!
By filexpat These VanDam NYC apps are insanely involving. They reconstruct the variety and depth of experience that I love about New York (a market with "sustainable meat from animals raised on small, local farms" - who knew?) -- and remind me of how much I have yet to see and do. I especially like being able to press a finger to a location and instantly have all the nearby places of interest pop up, with the relevant detail just one tap away. More to the point, though -- I want one of these for Chicago, where I live! A caution: To make them work reliably you have to quit other open apps, so you can`t casually flip back and forth to email, Angry Birds, or whatever. Hopefully this gets smoothed out in future releases.
Faster and more interactive!
By maxdaddyG With this new version comes faster load times, which is a welcome improvement over the previous version. I love the addition of the long touch interactivity. Very helpful in gaining knowledge of (other) points of interest near a particular location. The addition of more 3D buildings makes for an even greater visual feast. And the new ambient street sound is a fun surprise and nice touch! Using this app on the iPad is especially engaging.
The best apps are those that are truly practical, while they are also wicked fun. The StreetSmart app hits that mark. Nice work, Stephan!
