From cwandt comes this neat little app for the iPhone called Crowsflight. The idea is simple: use GPS data to point to your destination like a compass, but without providing any directions, giving you a chance to explore your surroundings.
By combining location data (GPS) with the compass, Crowsflight provides mapless navigation in an intuitive, glance-at-it kind of way.
No instructions, maps to read or paths to follow. Its a lot like asking for directions on the street. A friendly finger pointing in the right direction is often all the help you need.
Crowsflight uses only GPS to navigate. You can search for destinations on the fly if you have a data connection. If you dont, load up all your destinations before you set out for the day. Once youve loaded all the places you want to go, you dont need data anymore. Its perfect for wandering around foreign cities.
