How far away are you from home right now? Which direction is it to downtown Tokyo?
Far Away is a small utility that lets you keep a list of the places you have defined and shows the current distance and direction to each. You can also tap on an entry to see a rendered road sign with the current distance and direction.
Places can be entered with a title and latitude and longitude and you can choose between six different road signs.
If you don't know the latitude and longitude coordinates (and who does?), you can simply enter the address and let Far Away look up the coordinates using Google Maps' geocoding service or Far Away can insert the coordinates of the current location.
• Add any number of places
• Shows distance and direction
• List view of all places or fullscreen view with a rendered road sign
• Lookup addresses using Google Maps' geocoding og enter latitude/longitude directly
• Shows distances in kilometers or miles
• Choose between six different road signs
Works as stated, but no options at all! Need in miles instead of kilometers and would be nice to have other options to make a little more user friendly.
good one when your're driving around the country wondering how far you are from anywhere and don't wanna mess up ur directions map. Or when you're abroad wanna know how far you are from home. Just to make the homesick feeling even more intense. :-)
I love this. It works quickly, is very user friendly, and does what it promises. I love that you can find the longitude and latitude for a place WITHOUT being there, by simply entering the street address. Comes in handy when GPS is spotty, or you just want coordinates for a location that you aren't currently at!
