Sygic GPS navigation beats Angry Birds at iTunes App Store in Turkey

Sygic has launched its turn-by-turn navigation app for Turkey with stellar success. The app, available from iTunes App Store for USD 11.99, has beaten App Store heavyweights like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja in the race for number one spot on the Paid Apps Top Chart.

We are very excited that Sygic Türkiye is doing so well, not just getting to the top of the navigation category, but to the top of the whole App store,“ says Sygic Online Channels Director Samo Jurdik.

Sygic is a premium turn-by-turn GPS navigation app for iPhone with on-board map from TomTom. Sygic provides users with free map updates and boasts an intuitive interface that makes interaction with the app a comfortable experience. Sygic supports road incident sharing, provides alerts about speed cameras, speed limits and features a visual driving aid provided by the lane assistant and signposts. Advanced planning options and extended search possibilities are a must. The app can be enhanced with in-app purchases: 3D Cities & Landscape and City guides from premium providers and Wikipedia. Bonus features include pedestrian navigation, stopwatch for outdoor activities, or sharing of geo-tagged statuses on Facebook or Twitter and seeing friends on the map. Sygic users can provide feedback and vote for new features directly from within the app.

Sygic utilizes hardware accelerated 3D rendering, native iPhone and iPad keypad, iPhone gestures and compass-assisted direction detection. It supports iPhone 4 Retina display and it is compatible with both iOS3 and iOS4 operating systems, and the new iPad 2 dual-core A5 chip.
