SwissGrid Pro Released

A new year and a new app: SwissGrid Pro was just released!

After more than 20'000 downloads of the original SwissGrid app, it was time to provide our users with an even better app. It still allows to show Swiss coordinates of the current position, convert between the WGS and Swiss grid format, determine coordinates on a map, and use a compass. SwissGrid Pro now adds many useful features to the original version:

  • Direction: Enter the coordinates of your destination, then this new function shows the direction and distance from your current position to your destination on a compass. The direction screen can be invoked from the map or from manual coordinate entry.
  • Save list: Need to remember the coordinates of a place? No problem with this new feature: just click the 'star'-icon on the map screen and the selected place can be saved with any name. All previously saved locations can be marked on the map by just selecting them from the list.
  • Share: The share function makes is very easy to send coordinates selected on the map to a friend. Just click the mail icon and a list with all installed email/sms/messaging/... programs ist displayed.
  • Clipboard: By tapping the leftmost icon on the map, the coordinates of the selected point on the map are copied to the clipboard. This allows to easily transfer them to any other app on the device.
Find it on Google Play: SwissGrid Pro
Direct access from Android devices: SwissGrid Pro

Also a small update of the original SwissGrid app is now available. It makes the compass more reliable and fixes some map display issues.

Both SwissGrid and SwissGrid Pro are now also available in German.
