If that is also your main goal, or one of many goals you have in life, we now have a new app to help us set up and plan for our future journeys: the Locus Free app! Locus Free is, as the name says, a free Android app from the Play Store that enables you to find yourself in a map.

No joke. It’ll pinpoint your exact location more accurately than Google has ever managed. You can then use it to set an itinerary by pinpointing stops in your journey and so many more options. This app can be quite complex to operate, so you should start by choosing the ‘Beginner’ option, which will enable you to pick any add-ons you’d like to download from the Play Store.
Once you’ve chosen, click on ‘next’ and you’ll have a few more setting options, then finally arrive at the map containing a little radar symbol that marks your spot. Once here, you have so many options that one little review would not be enough to cover them all, so I suggest you download this app now and give it a try for yourself.
So to name a few of the uncountable amount of things you can do with this app: If you are Muslim, you can use it to find your position in relation to Mecca for your daily prayers. If you are a pilot or sailor about to travel somewhere, pinpoint it and you’ll get the local time, date, weather and coordinates.
It’s perfect for Geocaching, (activity where people have to find hidden ‘treasures’ – usually something small like a keychain – scattered throughout the globe, then post their findings on the Geocaching website) which is a competition/tourism activity or, if you practice it in your local area, it is a completely free and healthy weekend activity for the whole family to enjoy.
This app gives you several specific tools for Geocaching, including coordinates, tracking and GPS. Think of how much it would cost to buy a GPS and you’ll be convinced to try this app instead. Speaking of GPS, this app can also be used as a tom-tom (driving GPS), as well as to find satellites serving your area, to search for or track a specific authorised phone, to share your location on social networks, plan a holiday, etc.
The list is never ending and, as you learn to operate the app, you get even more options. You can also purchase the full version from the Play Store and get the full benefits of this wonderful app. In all my time as an Android reviewer, never have I seen a free app with so many options, so accurate or powerful, therefore saying I recommend this app is a complete understatement.
Get it. Now. And be amazed!
