Do more with GPS apps
Find anything (or anyone) with GPS-enabled apps.
You know that a GPS can get you from point A to point B, but did you know that the same mapping technology can be used to get wine bar recommendations, program your phone to automatically go silent at the movies or find your car in a mall parking lot? Check out these apps to see what else GPS can do.
And don't forget AT&T Navigator. This app gives you turn-by-turn directions and automatically reroutes you if you drive past what should have been a right turn. Plus, you can get proactive traffic alerts for daily commutes so you know about slowdowns or accidents before you leave your driveway.
If you're a Food Network fanatic then this app was cooked up just for you. Use their frequently updated maps to find a booth featured on your favorite food reality shows.
When nature calls, it isn't always convenient. That's why the Toilet/Bathroom finder is practically essential—it tells you where the closest restrooms are along with user-based ratings because no one wants a 1-star stall.
Want your spouse to know where you are or need a friend to guide you? This app lets you safely share your location and movements on a map with anyone, by sending them a "Glympse" via email, text message, Facebook or Twitter and lets you specify a time limit for access—so no spying!
Road warriors meet Road Ninja—an app that lets you explore the restaurant and lodging options at upcoming exits, search for cool attractions on your route or click through the interstate directory. It adds a real kick to any car trip.
Plenty of GPS-based apps can tell you what's close by, but TellMeWhere does it with your preferences in mind—this app gets to know you. Every time you rank a restaurant or coffee shop, it takes note and next time you search for something, the app delivers results based on and ranked by the choices of users with similar tastes. You can also recommend your newest finds or see where your friends like to get a glass of wine.
