Capital Cities

       iOS iPhone

Ever wondered what direction a capital city far far away is from your house? What direction you should walk to get to Hong Kong, Paris, Mexico, Helsinki?

This app will show you in what direction the capital cities are from you. Choose between nearest, farthest, random or pick the ones you want to see.
If your device supports magnetic compass, just rotate around and you see exactly in what direction the cities are.

You also get information from selected city by tapping it. It also shows a random fact - any wondered how long it would take from a Giant Tortoise to get from here to Tokyo?

No network connection needed, just disable your roaming when using (otherwise your device will use A-GPS will be used and it consumes small amount of data for locating).

THIS APP IS DESIGNED FOR iPhone 3G S! So: for best user experience we suggest this app for iPhone 3G S users because of it's magnetic compass. However you can use also any device capable of locating itself - you just need either be on the move to get the heading you're travelling or manually rotate the map.
