Free sat nav company updates its application

Skobbler GPS app now Apple iOS4 compatible

German GPS firm Skobbler has released a new version of its free iPhone sat nav app.

The main change in Skobbler 3.0 is an overhaul of the user interface, which the company claims makes the software more accurate and easier to use, as well as being compatible with Apple iOS4.

The app now includes Google local search, which allows users to navigate to their destination by just tapping one button.

Marcus Thielking, co-founder of Skobbler, said: “The improvements are a reaction to UK customer feedback and we are pleased that these measures make our navigation software even more user-friendly.”

The free application has had 100,000 UK downloads since June, and at the time of the launch the firm claimed it would “make expensive sat nav and costly, out of date map updates a thing of the past”.
