Are you from Toronto ? Feeling lost in THE PATH ? There’s a App for that !

by Gaurav Kheterpal on April 23, 2010

Are you planning to visit Toronto for business ?
Are you planning your next vacation in Toronto ?
And most importantly, have you ever gotten lost in the Toronto underground maze called “The Path” ?

The path is the world’s largest series of underground shops, services and entertainment. However, there’s one common concern amongst tourists and Torontonians alike – 28 kilometers is a long distance and no matter how good your navigation skills are, there’s always a chance that you’ll get lost in the PATH. Lost tourists asking for directions are a common sight and unless you are a staunch believer in the treasure hunt, it’s not much fun either. 

MAP THE PATH to the rescue.

Thankfully, a new iPhone app ‘Map The Path‘ is now available to ensure that you never get lost in the PATH. The app turns your iPhone into an iPATHfinder through Toronto’s PATH system that snakes beneath the centre of Canada. The app is developed by BonceWorks, a company founded by Roxana Vasquez who’s no stranger to the PATH and believes that the app is a perfect solution to avoid getting lost in Toronto’s underground walkway. The app is rated 4+ by the iTunes App Store and is available for free download.

The ‘Map The Path’ app provides detailed information about the 28 km of walkways connecting the 50 buildings within the PATH system and helps people find the businesses they are looking for underground. What’s more, it provides info on offers, sale and discount coupons in the underground area. The app has already been downloaded by about 150 people and has massive potential as the PATH system accounts for nearly 100,000 commuters a day. What’s more, BounceWorks is already planning to launch a Blackberry version of ‘Map The Path’ soon. To get your copy of Map the Path, go to mapthepath.com.

Looks like a great application . Haven’t used this application , but looks seemingly interesting.

I guess there are so many iphone applications coming up.

I have come across few more in China. One of them was Foxfly, a private group chatting service.

Check out http://www.foxfly.com
