Microsoft Path Guide App

Microsoft has just developed a new app called Path Guide. The app is expected to help solve the problem of indoor navigation.

The Path Guide app tracks the distance walked and directions turned using on-board sensors, and then creates a route for others to follow. You can then send the route to friends, or leave it publicly searchable.

If you’re meeting up with friends and one of you is running late, this could prove to be an invaluable service, allowing you to show them exactly where they’re supposed to be going.

As with any crowdsourcing platform, it does mean the onus is on the user to create the content, but as with Wikipedia, we have seen that crowdsourced projects can work.

One of the cool features Microsoft highlights on the app is the ability to create a ‘trace’ that allows you to retrace your steps in the opposite direction, meaning that once you’ve parked your car you can create a trace to the lift, and on returning to the lift you just start up the trace and it leads you straight to your car.

The app now, is currently in the development stage so it’s only available on Android, and still has a few niggly issues like not being able to run in the background, so you can’t close the app to text someone to let them know you’re on your way and still get notifications, as you can with Google Maps.

How to Download Path Guide App

The App is available on the Play Store, or you can visit the Path Guide official page, for more details.
