The most popular apps in iOS are GPS navigation applications. These apps provide navigation, search, turn-by-turn and off-road navigation capability. Navigation apps for iOS are split into two categories: maps installed and maps accessible on-the-flight.

On your smartphone you can install so many GPS navigation apps. It is also difficult to determine which storage space is worth taking and which one is not worth your money or time. Here we do not give you, in any particular order, the advantages and disadvantages of 15 apps worth showing. Others are for navigation, while others have integrated features, such as social media sharing and backwood walking routes. All basic versions are free, although many have a monthly or annual premium feature.


1. Google Maps

You didn’t foresee any other app at the end, didn’t you? Of course, Google Maps is by far the world’s most used and trusted GPS and navigation app. Google-designed, and provided for free, the software provides accurate traffic, multiple modes of navigation and route transport and automated navigation re-routings, or missed turns and exits, due to traffic conditions.

2. Apple Maps

For many, like myself, the built-in Apple Maps app should be the default. You can see new locations, or you can look for a new address or interest point. It also draws in company data from Yelp so that you can see reviews and pictures if they are available. You will find the multiple turn-by-turn options to go, however, be prepared for odd turns and routes.

3. Maps.ME

Maps.ME is a free app with maps including more than 600 cities in 100 countries. There is a chance Maps.ME has the maps for that place, no matter where you go. The app is for visitors and tourists and contains comprehensive maps, including restaurants, tourist attractions, gas stations and so on. Maps.ME provides ski slopes and ski areas for mountain destinations. The app also enables users to download and scan maps offline without data connections.

4. TomTom GO Navigation

The TomTom GO Navigation app is a sleek combination of the latest TomTom car navigation technology and world-class traffic information. The app displays the best route available based on accurate, real-time traffic information that gets you to your destination quickly. With the TomTom Traffic feature, you always know where delays are and whether a faster route is available.

Lane guidance is a standout feature of TomTom GO Navigation. Never miss a turn again because you’re in the wrong lane. Relax while the app’s speed camera monitors posted speeds and alerts you to fixed and mobile speed cameras (internet connection required).

5. Waze

Waze is an app from Waze Inc, that got acquired by Google, back in 2013. The app is crowdsourced and depends on the users to source its traffic data. It allows users to report accidents, hazards, road closures, etc, in order to help other drivers using the app. So, if the traffic is jam-packed, the app will change it to ensure you don’t get stuck. You can keep a track of alerts about traffic, police, and accidents so that your journey can remain swift. 

6. Where To?

When you want an all-in-one guide to everything around you and how to get there, then Where To? is an excellent app to have. Where To? is fast and intuitive. The wheel when you first launch the app lets you pick the category that you want to look for, and then you can choose from a huge list of subcategories. A comprehensive list of results show up in a few moments, or you can switch over to a map view to get better visuals.

7. Citymapper

Loads of apps include public transportation info as part of their feature suite, but Citymapper focuses specifically on those options, and that’s why it stands head-and-shoulders above the rest. It taps into real-time data in a legion of cities throughout the world to provide optimal routes via bus, subway, train, or foot (or any combination of the above) to help you get where you’re going, and fast. It also guides you to the best individual subway car and suggests the most efficient exit to take.

8. MapQuest

MapQuest is still around, surprisingly, after all this time. For many reasons, the MapQuest app is a good tool, even though we have stuff like Google Maps. Firstly, in the MapQuest app you will always know what’s going on with your morning commute, which includes real-time traffic alerts and even connections to live traffic happened to come. Easy-to-use traffic updates help you find alternate routes, and with personalized icons you can also select your favorite locations. MapQuest also shows a speed limit, so there is no excuse for getting a speed ticket.
