“MapFan AR Global” is an app which supports users to find intuitively the pedestrian route to a destination without relying on a map. After setting a route to a destination from one’s current location, a pedestrian route and guidance information is projected onto the actual view seen through the iPhone's camera. This app is the global version of "MapFan eye", an AR pedestrian navigation app which achieved the No.1 ranking in overall paid apps at the App Store after its release to the Japanese market by INCREMENT P.

“MapFan AR Global” lets users arrive at their destination easily and without stress by holding out the iPhone's camera because its intuitive display shows the way to go and where to turn. An auditory sound or vibration acts as a reminder at the turn points, so users do not need to watch the screen constantly.

To celebrate the launch of “MapFan AR Global”, INCREMENT P offers free-of-charge period for three weeks from March 5, 2014. (After the period regular price is US$2.00). Do not miss this chance to experience the convenience of this AR pedestrian route guidance that removes all the worry to find the way to your destination.
