Appendix: MakKafe Walking | Free | For iPhone | Set

There is nothing better than summer trips in his native city. Of course, heat waves, making some adjustments to the plans, but, for example, in the parks, or just near the water is still fresh and good. But most of the residents of the city every time go for a walk on the already painfully known routes that are likely all pretty bored. But every city is full of beautiful and interesting sights that can, for example, boasts of its history. But, unfortunately, know about them one. But there was a great solution – application “MakKafe Walking”, which will help everyone who loves a walk and coffee. Let’s try to combine business with tasty.

Always nice to see when the big and famous brands are trying to create not just a real application, which is a menu or directory, and something useful. Where very organically integrated tools to solve their own problems. Agree that no one would not need to install yourself simply menu “MakKafe.” The more so because there is no delivery. After all, you can just go to a cafe, view the menu and order whatever you want. But the guys came up to the achievement of its objectives is quite interesting, beating all so that the application can be useful even for those who do not like coffee.


Generally, the whole idea is that you, taking the cup of hot or cold (select themselves, there are such and such) coffee, went for a walk around the city, exploring the most interesting and unusual sights. Accordingly, the first step is to find the nearest (or most appropriate) “MakKafe.” Available in the application all Russian cities, in which there is at least one voiced café. Therefore, you will immediately see a map of the city (thanks to the automatic positioning), which will be marked with special labels all “MakKafe.” Comfortable enough and clear. However, there are some drawbacks.


The main problem in this case – the lack of paved route from your location to a specific “MakKafe” on the map. Absolutely not clear why the developers did not foresee such a possibility. It is not clear, and why the application received the nod to the determination of the location, and does not display the user’s location on the map itself. It turns out the only thing that can be done in this case – see the address “MakKafe”, and then run a separate mapping application where the use and installation of the route. Quite crudely and uncomfortable.


Another similar lack of them on the page of a particular “MakKafe”, which can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate button next to the address. Here we see an approximate piece of the map marked “MakKafe.” But the problem is that the piece of the map can not be move or scale. Accordingly, if, for example, you are out of the metro and the metro station has not got on this piece of card, you will not be able to know where you want to be sent from the subway to get to the “MakKafe.” Especially it will be difficult for those who do not know this area, and hence – the name of the nearby streets do not say anything. But the page itself looks really stylish and beautiful, you can not argue.


In the upper right corner is a button, clicking on which you will see a list of places of interest near the selected “MakKafe.” The list can consist of various parks, buildings, monuments, squares and all other attractions. All of them are provided with a brief description, literally in one paragraph. Apparently, the full possibilities of the application is activated only at the moment when you find yourself in close proximity to (or just inside) of the “MakKafe.” Then you can click on the “Start the walk” in the popup window, and as soon as you get to a specific place, then get access to the full description. A certain logic in this quest, of course, there is.


In general, the possibilities seem to have the application in terms of walking enough. You will always have an inventory of current recreational places, which can be updated. And all the places designated several colors, depending on their “mood”: orange marker – a romantic place, yellow – inspiring green – historic. In addition, you can adjust the length of your walk, if, for example, do not want to go far. Or just too lazy to walk a lot, and I want to go to surrounding area and then go back with a cup of coffee – and why not?


In addition, you, like other people, can independently add their own points on the map with the sights, and then share them with friends in different social networks. The description of the places you can add photos. That they were beautiful, they can be treated with a special “coffee” filters. Photos are unusual and stylish, these will be pleased to share in other places, such as in Instagram . It is worth noting that all users add places are moderated, and only then enter the lists. Therefore, all the sites can be considered a proven, so – interesting.


“MakKafe Walking” – a very beautiful app. It can not only see all the drinks available in the same cafe (high-quality photos with a brief description), but also to create a new route for a walk with a glass of fragrant and tasty coffee. The idea is really great, but the app just need to be further developed, as are certain disadvantages, which are mentioned above, there are. But who clearly deserves this praise – those who worked on the design and application interface, everything is up to par. In general, try “MakKafe Walking” in action exactly should: be able to learn a lot of new and interesting things about his hometown. And about the coffee, of course.
