|NavigX Touch renamed to NavigX for iPhone|
NavigX Touch has now been renamed to NavigX for iPhone to distinguish it between the app for the iPhone and the app for the iPad (which is coming very soon). In version 2.2.1 of NavigX for iPhone, there have been some changes to the way locations are presented to you and also some subtle differences in some of the screens. We are also very pleased to launch WebTrack in this new version as this will bring a new dimension in safety for anyone using the app "in the wild".
WebTrack is a user-selectable feature which will report your position to a server on the Internet and it will allow you to grant a contact the ability to see your position. It is selectable for who gets to see your position and also for how long and you can switch it on or off at will.
When NavigX for iPad comes online, you'll be able to track multiple contacts by using WebTrack, provided you have an internet connection. We see this as being ideal for anyone who is organising an event in the hills such as a fell run or organised walk.
WebTrack has very basic functionality in v2.2.1 as we are looking at how well the current server copes with the load but NavigX v2.3 for the iPhone and iPad will open up a whole load more functionality. We're quite excited about it, really!
