“This is fantastic confirmation that our basic idea about how the service should be used is absolutely on target,” says Martin Svensson, managing director of Appello.

In the comparison between six different GPS navigators for the iPhone, Appello’s Wisepilot navigator took both first and second place. The decisive qualities were good search functions, report functions and menus.

“On most points, the Telia Navigator is identical to the Wisepilot, but not all. One function that the test highlighted is that walking navigation can be supplemented with a search for public transport to take you to your final destination.

The test was carried out for the iPhone, but Appello’s navigator is available as a service for all telephones with inbuilt GPS. Navigation works in the same way.

“We are available on the market via several channels, partly through our partnerships with telecom companies Telia and Telenor, and partly with our own brand, Wisepilot, which is distributed via Sony Ericsson and iTunes, BlackBerry App World and Android Market.
