Take Me There
Favourite locations for three apps
Free Developer Developing Perspective, david-smith.org
Works with iPhone, Apple Watch Version 1.0.1
This app acts as a shortcut list to locations you visit often. It lets you plot directions to any of them using Apple Maps, Google Maps or Waze – handy if you know one is better for a particular place or mode of travel. You can customise any combination of those apps to be offered when you request directions to a place.
Your favourited locations are listed on the app’s opening screen, each with a preview of its map location, an editable name, and a ‘GO’ button. The app selects map previews automatically and you can’t adjust them – or replace them with a photo, which would be a useful visual aid for quick selection. It’s also inconvenient that you must precisely tap ‘GO’ to get started, rather than anywhere on a location’s row.
The Watch app is accessible from that device’s Home screen, not as a Glance, and works only with Apple Maps. You may well ending up using Siri for speed instead. Alan Stonebridge
We appreciate what Take Me There aims to do, but in practice it is an underdeveloped affair.
