Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Pointer App?

The pointer app is an orientation app with location management functionality for intuitive navigation. Thanks to this app you will have the perfect sense of orientation. You will also be able to remember and (re-)find any location you like. As a plus, you can share places with family, friends and the social media community.

How does the Pointer App work?

Pointer App works like an “individual compass”. It eliminates the need to bother with maps. Just trust your intuition, choose the path most inviting to you, and – thanks to the pointer app – always keep your heading.

How is Pointer App different from classical map applications?

Typical map apps are optimized for large distances and long routes. Their value lies in “turn-by-tun-directions”. On the last few hundred yards, however, one typically benefits from a much more natural and intuitive way of orientation. And this is where the pointer app comes in – the perfect addition to traditional routing apps.

How would I use the Pointer App?

The Pointer App isn’t just handy when you want to explore the most interesting route to a destination. Pointer App helps you find your buddies at the secret location on the lake-shore. It helps you find your friends even beyond streets and roads. Pointer reliably makes sure, that you find your way back to the point you started from – regardless whether you want to find back to your car, the hotel, or a location in an outdoor setting.

What else can I do with the Pointer App?

You can save and organize your favorite locations and share them with your family and friends.

Professionally compiled location packages can be downloaded – like for example the free Oktoberfest Munich (Germany) location package, which helps you find the most important Oktoberfest highlights in a convenient way.
