Localscope, the Social Powered GPS App, Just Got More Socialable

Localscope is a $1.99 iPhone app that helps you quickly identify businesses and places around you. It draws its information from a variety of sources including Google, Bing, Twitter, Foursquare and Wikimapia. It has a great user interface that is intuitive and simple to use. And, it lets you see search results three different ways: List, Map and Augmented Reality. You share any search result using SMS (text), email, Facebook or Twitter.

The recent version 1.5 update makes this already highly social geo-location app even more collaborative. It now auto-detects and works with other apps.

- MotionX GPS Drive
- Waze Social GPS navigation
- MetroView Australia & New Zealand GPS Navigation
