"Anchor Pointer: The navigation app that Apple should buy" – Financial Review, May 2016.

There are so many times we need a navigation app beyond the standard Maps or Google Maps. First of all, we will need a reliable navigation app when we’re not connected to the internet. Maybe we currently don’t have a data plan or we can’t find the signal. We might also need an app to save location and find our way when there is no map available, such as in wilderness or in a very large park. This is why you need a navigation app that uses your device’s built-in GPS system instead of internet connection. This is also the reason why we built Anchor Pointer. This location saver app will free you from a lot of frustration in finding your way back. It will also guide you when you are in nature where map apps are unavailable/unusable. By using Anchor Pointer, you don’t need to rent expensive navigation equipment anymore.

Wherever life takes us, we’ll find our way back with Anchor Pointer. It’s the compass reinvented with walking directions, navigational bookmarks, and a simple parked-car locator—all in a friendly design. We save time and stress by sharing our whereabouts with friends and syncing saved locations across devices. For treks through nature or across town, Anchor Pointer fits like a good pair of shoes.

Very well designed

Its design is not cluttered and is very easy to grasp. I will definitely continue to use this app whenever I need to find a location again or find a parked car. It’s much easier to just open this app and make an anchor than to go through the process of dropping a pin in Google or Apple maps. I always find it very tedious and hard to name and manage pins in those apps, but here it’s really simple and with the added features of the anchor list + being able to use different icons for different locations I’m able to pull up a location really quickly.

Useful but...

A really good concept. Kept me on target a couple times.

What's problematic is friend finding mode. I don't want anyone who can find my email address to be able to track me; it would be nice if you could send specific invites/approvals to increase sense of security regarding WHO specifically can track you down.

Also the accuracy is a bit spotty. Anytime I’ve tried to find my car it ends up off by ~25 feet or so; not bad but can seem far off in a large lot with a lot of cars or outside venue.

Developer Response ,

Hi. There is no way to establish connection over the internet between two devices without “registration” process. Two devices has to be added to one server to communicate with each other. I think everybody hate registration and authorisation process, so I came with the feature provided by Apple. This feature uses iCloud secure protocols, it works out of the box and don’t required registration and login process. I can relay on Apple’s system and I believe that users of the app will appreciate it as well.

Please note there is NOBODY can track your location at any particular time.

Even if you see somebody at your Meet Friend list, to track this person you have to request Meet Friend connection by tapping person name in the list and wait until your friend accept the request. When your friend accepted this request both of your devices will be point to each other until you (or your friend) will disconnect by tapping "End" button. It works the same, if somebody would like to establish connection with you. By using Meet Friend nobody can find your email or any other personal data.

About accuracy of the app. Please open Anchor Pointer > Settings > Support and follow instructions to improve accuracy.

Thank you, - Alex.
