Apple has changed the way we travel by the introduction of the Maps app. In the past we have been so accustomed tracing our travel routes through the use of paper maps and road signs. Getting were your going on the fastest route possible is what we all want, but there is a variety of way to get you there. For some the mounted dashboard directional is the way to go, but word on the internet is that the sale of these devices is on the slide. But times have changed and now we have access to a GPS by just reaching in our pockets. This app have turn-by-turn voice navigation and will nag you with new direction if you make a wrong turn or try to go off course.
Smart phones now make all other routing methods seem outdated and almost ineffective. This app not only gives step by step voice navigation but recognizes traffic and locates recreational services. This has changed the game. Traveling has never been made easier. Apple has 25% market share of smartphones in the United States. Since there are about 72.5 million smartphone owners, that comes out to about 18.5 million iPhones in the US. As this number continues to grow, the market for navigation tools is steadily declining.
