Quick Look: Take Me Home for Windows Phone
Here's a quick look at an interesting navigation application for your Windows Phone. Take Me Home is a no-frills, basic navigation app that will generate directions to a series of saved addresses.
Take Me Home has two pages, one entitled Settings where you enter your addresses and assign it an icon and another that will tap into mobile Google Maps to generate directions to your destination. You do have two options on the Settings Page to turn on/off location services and auto navigate features. Once you've entered the address, swipe over to the Navigation Page and you can generate the directions.
I like the concept and ease of generating directions to saved locations but Take Me Home only provides text directions. You can tap on the individual step in the directions overview to pull up a thumbnail map but that is a little cumbersome.
I do like the options to choose walking, transit and driving directions. This could come in handy when traveling and you need to rely on mass transit or your feet to get you to your destination.
The developer notes in the Marketplace description that more features are on the way and hopefully a map view that routes your course is among them. As is, Take Me Home is a decent app for your Windows Phone but does have room for improvement.
Take Me Home is a free Windows Phone app and can be found here at the Windows Phone Marketplace. Additionally, Take Me Home Pro (allows you to save up to four addresses) is running $.99 and you can find the Pro version here at the Marketplace.
