Localscope updates to v1.5

Back in March I reviewed a very interesting app called LocalScope. LocalScope, by way of a reminder, is a location aware discovery app. The team at Cynapse have been very busy and have just announced the release of version 1.5.


The v1.5 update enables users to search for a location using any of the social networks or search engines within Localscope and to get turn-by-turn directions to it using one of the 6 integrated navigation apps.  The integrated apps are MotionX GPS Drive, Social GPS Navigation Waze, Australia & New Zealand based MetroView, TomTom, Navigon MobileNavigator and the default iOS Maps App.  This integration gives the user a complete experience from searching for a location, reading reviews & more and finally reaching it.


Additionally, iPhone users who speak French, Italian, German and Spanish also have something to be happy about.  They can now use Localscope in their native languages.


A lot more fixes and performance enhancements have been made in v1.5.  To find out more, head over to the Cynapse blog post here: http://www.cynapse.com/blog/announcing-localscope-version-15-perfect-find-and-drive-companion
