MapmyIndia ReachMe app launched for iOS, Android and Windows Phone; allows single-tap location sharing

After Explore and Locate apps, MapmyIndia has now launched a new location-based app called ‘ReachMe’, which allows users to instantly share their location with select friends or contacts of their choice with a single tap. The app is available for free on all major smartphone platforms including iOS, Android and Windows Phone as well as can be accessed from the phone’s browser from here.

The app basically allows single-tap location sharing, so one will simply have to tap on the display of their phones to share their location with the group. The app will share the location over SMS but a user can also send the link to their location via social networks and apps like WhatsApp, Twitter, Skype, Facebook and email. Users can also share a PIN if the recipient also uses the app. The receiver can then open the link or can enter this PIN in the app to see the details of the sender’s current location. The app integrates MapmyIndia maps, and allows users to also check an optimal route to the sender’s location.
