Here I Am Now! Description
Here I Am Now! displays your current location on a map and follows you as you move. It uses reverse geocoding and speech synthesis to display and announce each street address as you pass nearby (e.g.; “4 Elm Street”, “6 Elm Street”, “8 Elm Street”, etc.). It follows you on a detailed map as you drive, ride, or walk past buildings and residences, verbally announcing each address as you pass by. The use of synthesized speech means that you are not distracted by having to look at a screen, but rather can just listen to the spoken addresses as you pass nearby.
Here I Am Now! implements Dark Mode with iOS 13.
Here I Am Now! allows you to share your current location with friends and family, but only if you elect to do so. You can send your current location information via Messages and Mail, or post it to Twitter, Facebook, and many other services. You can take a photo of your current location, or use any photo currently on your iPhone, to include with your shared location information if you so desire.
Here I Am Now! displays a speedometer and compass overlay on the map display whenever you are moving. The speedometer displays your current speed and the compass displays your current course direction. This overlay appears at the bottom of the map display and disappears whenever you are stationary.
Here I Am Now! also provides detailed location information including your current latitude, longitude, and altitude, as well as complete address information. It furthermore displays a street view of your current location in areas where street view is available.
Here I Am Now! provides 3D Touch support for recent iPhones, allowing you to quickly share your current location, speak the current address, or launch with voice ON or OFF. Here I Am Now! also provides a Siri Shortcut to allow the current address to be spoken directly from Siri.
Obviously Here I Am Now! is only effective in areas where locations have been geocoded, but that includes most cities in the US. Here I Am Now! also relies on GPS signals to determine your detailed location and cell (or Wi-Fi) network connections to access the geocoding data. As with all navigation applications, the accuracy of information displayed and spoken by Here I Am Now! is dependent on many factors, including GPS and geocoding availability and accuracy, and network connectivity. Here I Am Now! requires Precise Location setting to function properly with iOS 14 and watchOS 7, and should be set to Always Allow Location Access to allow operation in the background.
Here I Am Now! provides interoperability with the Apple Watch (including the Apple Watch Series 4 with LTE). The Here I Am Now! Watch App operates independently of the iPhone with watchOS 6. The Here I Am Now! Watch App allows you to turn the synthesized Apple Watch voice on or off so that you can listen to your current address even when the iPhone is not present. The Here I Am Now! Watch App provides a small detailed map of your current location, as well as a display of your current street address. The Watch App allows you to zoom the map in or out to achieve the best view. The Here I Am Now! Watch App follows you as you move along in sync with the Here I Am Now! iPhone App if the iPhone is present. When using the Apple Watch Series 3 or 4 with LTE, the Here I Am Now! Watch App follows you as you move along using its cellular connection even when the iPhone is not present. The Here I Am Now! Watch App also provides watch complications to allow the Here I Am Now! Watch App to be quickly launched from the watch face.
Here I Am Now! is very simple to use - just launch it, turn on voice, and let it help you find the address you are looking for!
