The Mapkin App Lets You Add a Touch of Personality to Your Directions

The Mapkin app is the modern way to write down directions for a friend.

The new app allows you to create and send personalized directions to a person's smartphone via text, email or social media. Mapkin lets you do more with the directions you give, such as letting you write down comments about certain points in a route and attaching voice recordings.

As mobile GPS technology gets better, the difference between map apps grows smaller and smaller. The Mapkin app stands out with its customizable features that make giving directions feel more personal and less informal. The app is currently undergoing testing in a private beta session and will be distributing invites on a first come first serve basis.
