Map of the Week: Snapette


Map of the Week: Snapette

Why we like it: Snapette is “the fashionable shopper’s handy best friend. Our easy-to-use mobile app is the perfect shopping tool to help you find designer fashion currently in stores near you.” With both a website for browsing fashion in specific shops, and mobile apps that let you view what’s around you, it is a great match of shopping and maps.




On Android, Snapette uses the new Google Maps Android SDK V2 to show stores where a particular product is available.




And you can click on an individual store and get driving directions.




The integration of the new Android SDK lets you tilt and turn the map to get a better sense of distance.



Overall, it’s a great shopping experience, and a great mapping experience.
