Stroll is a sophisticated utility that helps you find your way back to where you've been. It's useful when you're not in need of a map. It is a navigational app where you can save spots (locations) and then find your way back to them. Stroll uses an arrow and a distance indicator to direct you to your saved spot. Direction and distance are continuously updated. Stroll is designed for outdoor use and works with iPhone 3GS+ and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G models.
To accurately save a spot you need to be outdoors with a clear view of the sky so that your device can receive good GPS data. (You do not necessarily need a network connection.) If your GPS signal is not accurate enough, Stroll will prompt you to wait for a more accurate GPS signal.
Just press the Set Destination button in the Stroll view and you have just saved a Stroll spot! It is saved in My Spots, so you can now always select it there and find your way back to it. Remember that you need to be outdoors and you need a clear view of the sky so that you are able to receive good GPS signals.
Go into My Spots view by pressing the My Spots button. Then select your desired spot from the list. Stroll will immediatley start navigating towards that spot once you return to the Stroll view.
Once you have an activated spot, Stroll will point you towards that spot and show how far away it is. When you get within 10 meters of the spot, Stroll will alert you by displaying "You're here!" in the distance display. Stroll will also perform a short vibration when you arrive at the spot if you have selected this feature in the Settings view.
Go into My Spots view by pressing the My Spots button and then press the Edit button. This will open the My Spots view in edit mode. Open the Rename Spot view by pressing the detail disclosure button (a blue button with a chevron image on it) for the spot whos address you wish to edit. Edit your spot name and when you're done, just return by pressing the My Spots button. The new spot name is now saved.
Most people have the screen auto-lock set on there devices. This will automatically dim the screen in all apps after some time (default = 1 minute). In Stroll you can prevent this from happening without having to reset it for all apps. Just go into the Stroll Settings view and set the "Disable Auto-Lock" switch to "1".
The compass needs to be re-calibrated. To do this, rotate the device in a figure 8 motion. Make sure that the device is rotated around its 3 axis.
Stroll utilizes the built-in digital compass which works just like a magnetic-needle compass. The accuracy of digital compass headings can be affected by magnetic or other environmental interference, including interference caused by proximity to the magnets contained in the iPhone earbuds. Therefore the compass may need to be re-calibrated from time to time. Sometimes the device discovers this on its own and presents an image (see below) with the following message "Move away from any interference, or re-calibrate by waving iPhone in a figure 8 motion."
“Stroll incures basically no data costs and you won't be missing out on the amazing view because you had to figure out which way the map was turned.”
