Together the companies have launched ForeverMap 2, a free map app that lets users navigate their surroundings based on their location. The digital map app includes intuitive route guidance, Wi-Fi positioning, and local and category search functionalities. Like other mapping apps, users can search for an address and their location and pinpoint directions in between. The app is free but a PRO version of the app exists for $4.99 which gives users access to offline apps.
Maggie Taylor, marketing manager of Skyhook, said that location may come to more Nook apps. “We’re thrilled to power location functionality in ForeverMap 2 and bring location services to the Nook for the very first time. We are also eager to provide this location functionality to other apps hoping to port to NOOK devices.”
