CellMap and My Nearest!

Another iPhone app courtesy of Canpages, and a must have, is “My Nearest.”

“My Nearest” works anywhere in Canada. Essentially it is a customizable 411 directory for any sort of business within a 10 km. radius of your location. Feeling hungry? Search under the restaurants category, and “My Nearest” will list all the restaurants starting with the closest one first. Of course you can pull the business’ information up, add to your favorites list, and find directions. Need cash? “My Nearest” has an ATM category – in fact; “My Nearest” comes with 30 preloaded categories, but don’t stop there, you can create your own as well.

CellMap is proud to have been involved in the development of “My Nearest,” and proud to point out it ranked as the number #1 navigation app on iTunes Store.

It’s free and you can download it from here.

CellMap and Canpages

In addition to featuring voice search, it also offers: automatic 'nearby' search, maps and get directions, ability to save details to your contact list, live traffic cameras for travel info, reverse search by phone number, along with many other features.

Extremely convenient, practical, and it’s free! A must download from the iTunes Store.

Canpages Live on iPhone App Store

We've been pretty quiet these past few months.

Why pray tell? We were off building a major application for our client Canpages. This was a HUGE deal for us! Getting an opportunity to build the iphone software infrastructure we need for CellMap on iPhone, paid, and jump-started with wicked tools on Canpage's servers. It's been a real joy working for Olivier and David over at Canpages. This is just the begining. We've scheduled in some pretty cool new technology developments in the near future.

Check out Canpages on the App Store Canpages Icon
