txt2map Makes Getting Directions From a Text Message Easier

Nov 15, 2011

Here’s an app filed under “clever ideas”: ever try to get an address from a friend? Looking it up sure is annoying, isn’t it? After all, copying and pasting text into Google Maps isn’t always intuitive. What if there was an easy way to get an address from a text message and look it up in Google Maps? Well, like an infomercial host, I am here to say: well, now there is! txt2map Free pulls up a user’s last 10 text messages, then the user selects the message with an address in it, which txt2map sends to Google Maps. Easy, just like that. It works with specific addresses with city & state info, or with zip codes as well. This potentially makes getting directions to a friend’s house far easier than it ever was, with the power of Google Maps to help provide directions. This is just simple little convenience app that will help make people’s lives easier.
