Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) June 11, 2014 -- Last week, Teknowledge Software, a noted Indian mobile apps company, launched an application named Pocket Navigator. The release of the app was done during a specially convened media conference, attended by several dignitaries from the tech domain.
Pocket Navigator is, incidentally, the 600th app developed by Teknowledge - and the app development agency is publicizing it as one of their very best. Speaking exclusively with press correspondents, the CEO of the company, Mr. Hussain Fakhruddin, provided a lowdown of the app's features. According to him, powerful GPS and location-tracking features were the USP of Pocket Navigator.
According to the statements released by the app developers at Teknowledge, Pocket Navigator has been designed as an informative travel companion of walkers as well as cyclists. A wide range of detailed routes have been mapped in the application. Depending on a user's current location and the place (s)he wishes to go to - multiple alternative road routes have been traced out. Information on whether the road ahead is straight or there are curves in front are also provided. App analysts present at the launch were effusive in their praise for the technical features of the app.
Pocket Navigator has been optimized for the latest iOS devices, while an Android version of the app would be released soon too. The mobile app development experts at Teknowledge have focused on user-convenience in a big way, for this application. There are options to save/bookmark the routes along which a user travels relatively frequently (for example, the route to workplaces). Walking and/or cycling directions are provided at every step on a real-time basis. With the app, Teknowledge is hoping to remove the apprehensions about getting lost that people tend to have - while traveling to unfamiliar localities/cities/countries.
The senior iPhone app developers in charge of the keynote during the app-launch highlighted yet another major feature of Pocket Navigator. In case someone makes a mistake while following a route and wanders off - notifications would automatically be generated on the application. In addition, the shortest routes from the person's exact location to his/her intended destination would immediately be displayed. All notifications would be sent via vibrations, ensuring that users do not miss them.
The officials from Teknowledge also emphasized on the state-of-the-art mobile app testing done for the Pocket Navigator application. The testing department had checked the app for bugs, coding errors and malware meticulously - while it has also been tested for accidental crashes on devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch). The app, according to Mr. Fakhruddin, would offer top-notch user experience, with chances of glitches cropping up in it being practically nil. He also mentioned that new, upgraded versions of the app would be released after 6-8 months.
At first glance, the Pocket Navigator app indeed seems to be a handy aid for travelers. However, feedback from final-users would determine whether it actually lives up to the hype built around it. Given the uniformly successful track record of Teknowledge Software, it's unlikely that the company's 600th application would be anything short of excellent. The company CEO is particularly confident about the app doing well in the Australian and North American markets.
