Snapp Makes Indoor Mapping and Checking In a Possibility

Snapp Makes Indoor Mapping and Checking In a Possibility

Sep 25, 2012

Everyone's used a mapping application or a check-in service at this point, and the linking thread between them is that while it's possible to navigate to locations, it's only possible to see it as one giant entity. For shopping malls, it can be difficult to check in to the actual stores in the mall, for example. Snapp has a way to help. This app has the ability to map the insides of buildings for easier check-in and navigation. While it appears that this technology is specific to the app itself, the app also includes maps for over 100 locations worldwide to help navigate, including several of the largest shopping malls in the US. At worst, Snapp serves as an effective way to check in to multiple services at once, including Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter with location-enabled tweets, and developer Sensewhere's own Friendswhere service. Snapp is available as a free download from Google Play.
