Cutetown San Francisco Takes Map Applications to the Next Level

Maps and GPS applications have gained immense wind in the market with the advent of smart handheld devices. These applications amazed us with their pinpoint precision, highly intuitive interfaces, perfect route guidance while using GPS, lifelike building recreations and much more. But the new app Cutetown San Francisco from Cutetown LTD has taken this genre of apps to a whole new level by encouraging and involving its users into creating their own details into the standard map of San Francisco city.

This app lets users create an account and immediately start building different structures of the city from scratch using a simple but resourceful 3D modeling interface. Developers claim that no previous know-how of 3D modeling or architectural designing is necessary in order to explore the full potential of Cutetown. A detailed and intuitive tutorial awaits the first time users. Following the instructions is easy and should be enough for most subscribers.

Cutetown Sanfrancisco has a fully created model of the Stanford University campus to show the users a glimpse of the potential of Cutetown. The users first get to choose the place where their virtual building is to be erected.  Then, the four corners of the base are laid carefully and building is created floor by floor and column by column. Users can create floors, roofs, walls, balconies, doors, windows and even their types. There is provision for creators to even paint the walls of the building to create most lifelike map of San Francisco.

The application is in constant development with new features and bug- fixes being published regularly. The latest released version now displays the name of the creator if you come across a building in the map. Ability to digitally sign your own home is another added feature. The app right now limits creation of skyscrapers to 10 stories and some parts of the town are blocked at the moment.

Cutetown San Francisco runs slow on several iOS devices. This makes creating buildings frustrating at times as the time taken to finish the project can be quite high. The 3D interface is also sketchy at times although there have been improvements with each version. But, somehow one gets the feeling that Cutetown San Francisco got caught between a fantasy lifelike mobile game and a useful app. A lot is depending on what the developers come up with next.

The app is just 82 MB despite all the resources it provides. It is being offered in iTunes for free for a limited period of time. After downloading, all you need to do is create a free account to submit your creations and that is it. So, if you like maps and would like to be a part of the whole map creation process, this is the app for you at this moment. Go ahead download and enjoy!
