Official MapQuest App, a simple navigation alternative, now available for Windows Phone 8

MapQuest is no secret to mapping things out and has thrown it's name on to the Windows Phone Store shelves. The Windows Phone 8 app has voice-guided navigation, real-time traffic conditions, the ability to hunt down restaurants, and a lot more.

I can remember when MapQuest was the go-to website for looking up addresses and the MapQuest Windows Phone app makes a rather nice first impression.

MapQuest is about as simple to use as the old website. Your main page has button controls to search for an address, generate directions, choose between seventeen layers, and turn on the traffic conditions.

Additional features include:

  • Voice guided turn-by-turn directions
  • Traffic conditions updated every five minutes
  • Quick access to recent searches and favorite locations
  • Satellite map views
  • Option to create driving or walking directions.

Maps loaded smoothly, directions were generated promptly and overall MapQuest is a navigation option to consider for your Windows Phone 8 device.

MapQuest is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 device that you can find here in the Windows Phone Store.
