Below are four ways you can use TapAMap to explore the world one touch at a time:
Once you find a place to learn more about, touch it for half a second. TapAMap will pull from the web the Wikipedia articles closest to where you touched. Choose one, and in a moment, TapAMap retrieves the article. You can follow links, surf the web, or return to the map by tapping the Back button at any time.
You can also click on an image within the article about the location. If it's a horizontal image, just turn your iPhone to get a bigger view.
TapAMap loads up to five articles. If you want to see which pin the article was about, just touch the pins and the title and link will pop up. You can tap the blue arrow to return to the article.
If you start from the Standard map view and find five articles, but then want to see which is which, switch to Hybrid map view and zoom in to see a more precise view. This is useful in cities, where there can be several articles in a small area.
