Suitable for tourists and Norwegian locals alike, Nearby Norway for iPhone and iPad covers everything from public transportation timetables to GPS-integrated maps and route planning, with listings for restaurants, hotels, and loads of other establishments across the country.
If you’re planning on traveling to Norway anytime soon then I really can’t recommend this app strongly enough, and I would even go so far as to say that it is probably one of the most comprehensive country-specific travel guides that I’ve ever seen in the Travel category of the App Store.
Every so often I stumble upon an app which clearly shows what a huge amount of thought and effort has gone into its development, and Nearby Norway is a shining example of this, giving you everything you need to find your way in Norway.
Within this app you’ll find frequently updated maps with full integration for your device’s built-in GPS so that you can locate yourself and easily navigate to hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and even local amenities like recycle points.
