And now for something a little different. Today, I’m launching a simple Android called GO THERE NOW, which can create customized homescreen shortcuts that launches Google Maps in Navigation Mode immediately.
Ever since the introduction of the new UI found in Google Maps, there have been many complaints about the overall UX, in that the new Google Maps takes far too long just to launch Navigation Mode. The new Google Maps takes a minimum of three steps just to get Navigation Mode, but GO THERE NOW simplifies the process, by making it one step instead. GO THERE NOW supports several languages, including: English, Chinese (Traditional & Simplified), French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Vietnamese.
Many thanks goes to Joey for the app idea! Feel free to check out GO THERE NOW in the Google Play app store and let me know your thoughts and especially if you run into any bugs!
