Recce app updatesBy WRLD Team on 13th July 2015 | Android, Announcements, Development, iOS We’ve just finished a round of improvements for our showcase app, Recce. Recce is a fast, beautiful and fun way to explore the world with video game visuals; it’s built on top of our 3D mapping platform and offers a taste of what our technology can do. Of particular interest, we’ve released iOS & Android Recce apps that have map data for the United States, Canada and Great Britain — you’re no longer confined to a single city! Some of the things you can do with Recce include:
- Search for museums, galleries, parks, entertainment venues and tourist information.
- Find hotels and accommodation with ratings and user reviews.
- Create your own pins to mark locations on the map that interest you.
- Use your GPS location to discover nearby coffee shops and places to eat.
- Orient the map to whichever direction you are facing.
- Display the map in a more traditional flat style.
- Use the app offline – map tiles are streamed as you move around the map (internet connection required), but are cached so you can use the map later when offline.
- Customize your map by altering the season, time of day and even the weather.
