Map Apps On Mobile Phones Help Brits Get Around The Tube

Britons who want to take advantage of the new technology that many mobile phones offer, such as map apps, may want to recycle their old handsets.

According to rightmobilephone.co.uk, map apps are popular with smartphone users, especially for navigating around the tube and discovering places that have never been visited before.

Train times are another popular app and having such information easily to hand may convince some consumers that now is the right time to recycle a used mobile phone to raise cash for a better handset.

Neil McHugh, co-founder of the website, said Nokia in particular has stepped ahead of the competition by making its Ovi Maps free.

Indeed, the mobile phone manufacturer has announced that customers of its Nokia N97 can enjoy 12 of the most scenic routes from 12 of the most beautiful countries.

"Having maps stored locally on your device removes the need of having a good internet connection, as even these days a decent data connection isn't always available," Mr McHugh stated.
