Nokia Maps now offers an HTML5 version of its service which is compatible with Android and iPhone web browsers. While the updated version falls a little short of Google Maps, having an alternative is nice. Here’s what you can do with the HTML5 version of Nokia Maps:
- You can see where you are on the map, thanks to HTML5 support for positioning
- You can find addresses, businesses and other places of interest, anywhere in the world
- You can get to know the places: all the essential information about a place are presented on one page (pictures, user reviews, popular travel guides description, contact information)
- You can plan the fastest route to your destination by car or on foot
- You can see where the public transport lines go, and where the stops are
- You can share your favourite places with your friends via SMS, email, Facebook or Twitter
In order to get into the Android and iPhone compatible version of Nokia Maps, all you have to do is point your phone’s browser to maps.nokia.com and you should be all set!
