Description
Never get lost again with Anchor Pointer! Save location and find your way back whenever you are. Anchor Pointer is a great location saver app for travelers, hunters, fishermen, outdoor lovers, or anyone who simply needs a tool to find his or her car in a parking lot. Anchor Pointer uses GPS as the navigation system so you don’t have to be online to use our app. Download our app now and feel the convenience! "Anchor Pointer: The navigation app that Apple should buy" – Financial Review, May 2016. There are so many times we need a navigation app beyond the standard Maps or Google Maps. First of all, we will need a reliable navigation app when we’re not connected to the internet. Maybe we currently don’t have a data plan or we can’t find the signal. We might also need an app to save location and find our way when there is no map available, such as in wilderness or in a very large park. This is why you need a navigation app that uses your device’s built-in GPS system instead of internet connection. This is also the reason why we built Anchor Pointer. This location saver app will free you from a lot of frustration in finding your way back. It will also guide you when you are in nature where map apps are unavailable/unusable. By using Anchor Pointer, you don’t need to rent expensive navigation equipment anymore. =============================== TOP FEATURES OF ANCHOR POINTER: =============================== • Mark your location easily. We know that making such app should simplify your life and not let you do complex steps and that's why we developed a very easy to use interface. • Give you a direction to your saved location easily and fastly within a few seconds. • Uses built-in GPS function. You should activate your Location before using our app • Accurate and reliable. • Work even when offline. You don't have to be connected to a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi internet connection to use our app because we have a smart offline mode. • Share your location with friends easily. • Smooth user experience. • iCloud Sync – automatically sync saved locations with your other iOS devices. There are some reasons why you should use Anchor Pointer now: SAVE TIME – you don’t have to waste time finding your car in a great parking lot anymore. You can also save a lot of time when you need to meet or locate your friends. Just share your location and they can find you easily. SECURITY – As travelers, we often get lost in a foreign country. Now you can save location (such as your hotel’s location) and find your way back easily. Furthermore, you can easily meet and locate friends or family in a big park when there’s concerts or other crowded events. When you’re hiking or doing outdoor sports, you can also find your way back to your camp safely and easily. SAVE MONEY – As hunters or outdoor sports enthusiasts, you don’t have to rent or buy expensive navigation gadget anymore. Now you can use your iOS device as a navigation tool! You can share your saved locations via email, iMessage, Twitter, Viber, Facebook and other popular services. You can also open your saved location on Apple Maps or Google Maps. So, what are you waiting for? If safety is your priority and you want to be able to navigate your way whenever you are, download Anchor Pointer NOW! --- Note: please take note that there is a limitation to the GPS technology that we use. GPS technology isn’t able to find your location when you’re underground. Therefore, our location saver app doesn’t work on underground parking or when you’re underground. We value our users and we want to make sure you get the best user experience possible. If you encounter any issue when using our app beyond the GPS limitation, please email us and we will resolve the issue immediately. If you enjoy using this app to save location and help you navigate as a traveler, please take a minute or two of your free time and leave us a rating and review on our App Store page!

this app is so fast to mark a place. it is perfect app for apple watch.
Great App!
by Tim Orlando on 2019/01/10 14:20
Update 1/10/2019: Anchor Pointer is the single ONLY app that has helped me navigate in Italy, Spain, and London. Google Maps and other GPS apps are absolutely useless. One suggestion: I have friends on the android platform that would love to use this app. Any plans? Thanks Alex. Used this wonderful app to make my way through Spain. Worked great. Alex, you asked for suggestions to enhance Anchor Pointer: Perhaps it would be helpful to be able to import addresses from users’ iPhone contact list or from the web. Thanks. An update for Alex: I just returned from Italy on Monday. Again, Anchor Pointer was stellar in the most remote areas, including Venice, which is poorly mapped. Thanks so much for this wonderful app.
Me encanta

Apple Watch discontinued?

I previously rated this app with a low score because the Apple Watch app no longer worked. The Watch apps seems to be working well again, so I have given it 5 stars.
Lost Anchor Points
by Joe in Cleveland, OH on 2018/11/06 04:46
I've used this app for a couple years. Recently, I deleted a duplicate Anchor Point. Sadly, the app lost five or six Anchor Points that I made when traveling in various parts of the USA. Even though I synced using the cloud, only a few Anchor Points were preserved.
Great app! Just wish one more feature.
by Kewltune on 2018/10/31 00:25
Great app! I would love to see an option to increase the size of the arrow as well as much bigger font (where it tell you how far you are from anchor point) on real time screen. This would make it a lot easier to see and read while walking In broad daylight looking for my parked car. Thanks!
Great simple app

My review
by S10Lypz on 2018/09/29 02:27
Simple and easy to use. Gives you a direction and distance to where your going that you can EASILY follow. Great way to find friends/family at a huge park like Disney or on the beach while on vacation. Takes the stress out of losing your group if you oh say, gotta go to the bathroom. Everyone usually has to wait for you or come with but now they can go ahead to wherever and you have a direction and distance to where your group is. Great job guys 👍🏼

The developer does a lot of updates fixing his app and pays attention to his app 👍🏻 My rating increased from 3 to 5 now , dev deserves it. He has implemented many new features since my last review, he’s continued to update with bug fixes
Anchor pointed
by tswill2 on 2018/08/19 19:50
It’s good on my iPhone but not on my iPad. It needs the ability to work in the landscape mode and also to import locations via google maps or address. Also syncing between iPhone and iPad would be handy.
Amazing

Nope
by ~D!no on 2018/07/30 02:08
I hate leaving poor reviews, and I hope I have reason to update this one at some point. For the moment, though... I parked on a peninsula. I set my location. I checked the map. I took a trail to the water. I kayaked across the lake. I kayaked back across the lake, past my original trail/entry point to the other side of the peninsula. I checked the app. It told me to go back across the lake 375 yards. I went the direction opposite from the pointer about 75 yards, got in my car, went home, and left this review. Had I paid attention to the app, I’d still be swimming. Thankfully, my directional sense is pretty good.

Doesn’t take up much room, loads fast. Nicely done. Keep it on your home screen so you don’t go looking for it when you want to tag a position in a hurry, like a store or restaurant you finally found on the way to somewhere else.
Excellent Car Finder
by RandyinVirginia on 2018/04/29 14:39
Shows direction of parked car and it’s location on a map. Took a long time to find a car locator app this good.
Already impressed
by badkitty_ on 2018/04/06 18:08
Anything that goes from city to country and can help absentminded me find my car in a parking lot is valuable, in my opinion! Thank you for this app!
Useful but...
by Eric_Sean on 2018/03/20 00:27
A really good concept. Kept me on target a couple times. What's problematic is friend finding mode. I don't want anyone who can find my email address to be able to track me; it would be nice if you could send specific invites/approvals to increase sense of security regarding WHO specifically can track you down. Also the accuracy is a bit spotty. Anytime I’ve tried to find my car it ends up off by ~25 feet or so; not bad but can seem far off in a large lot with a lot of cars or outside venue.
Very well designed
by Gabby Graham on 2018/03/01 00:11
Its design is not cluttered and is very easy to grasp. I will definitely continue to use this app whenever I need to find a location again or find a parked car. It’s much easier to just open this app and make an anchor than to go through the process of dropping a pin in Google or Apple maps. I always find it very tedious and hard to name and manage pins in those apps, but here it’s really simple and with the added features of the anchor list + being able to use different icons for different locations I’m able to pull up a location really quickly.
It’s cool
by IDoMagic on 2018/02/22 06:15

Exactly what I need except..
by Rottenweiler on 2018/02/18 03:22
This app is minimal and as an over the road expediter it is extremely useful to note rest areas and truck stops. The only thing I would like to see added is a way to tag the anchors so that they can be sorted and displayed accordingly, possibly allow the pin colors to be customized per entry. I love the app but adding in those two items would make this thing perfect. Maybe sell it as a 99 cent unlock or something

This is the one I recommend to people
by LayFull on 2017/11/20 16:28
AnchorPointer hits the sweet spot of features and ease of use. There are similar apps with more features but have a learning curve, and those that are simpler but don’t have everything you need. Key pluses: - very simple to save points and get back to them with “radar” - a “car” mode that over-writes - a simple map - connection to Apple or Google maps for long-way directions - the best way of sending a point to another person Minuses: - the “car” mode can be very slow to start up

Good App, but please fix bug in Share
by Garyv40 on 2017/05/07 17:24
Useful and accurate. Most of the Share coordinate functions do not work: Noes are empty, no coordinates are inserted. Dropbox just gives an error message. iMessage has link to Anchor Pointer, but no user readable coordinates for copy/paste to save as text. When it does work, the output is always in decimal coordinates even if the the app is showing DMS coordinates. Based on other user's comments I'm sure the developer will soon have this corrected. Five stars.
Perfect solution quick setting my location
by LeVeLi on 2017/04/25 18:57
I love this app. Many times I've found myself in a new place and needing to quick mark spots on the map. Be it a store, my parked car, the place where I need to make a turn, it's super quick to set and beats all the other big navigation apps. Update for this new version: Yep, I continue loving this app. :)
Big mistake on my part
by Tinytim112964 on 2017/04/24 19:55
For some reason when I updated this app I was charged $21.00,don't know why or what happened I now don't believe it had anything to do with the app or the developer of this app.My sincere apologies to the developer. To be honest it is one of the best apps in the App Store. I love the app it's worth $21 dollars if you ask me. Again I sincerely apologize to the developer of this great app. I highly recommend this app it is well thought out and put together beautifully.
Excellent!
by Nickguy on 2017/04/23 14:22

by GGG&G on 2017/04/22 19:40
This app is way legit! I go hiking a lot and when it gets dark it can be hard to see. That's not a problem now though! I just have to follow the compass and I can always find my way home!
The Best
by i_Moby on 2017/04/21 13:54
Whenever I'm on a trip or to a game where the parking lot is large this is my go to app!! Awesomely designed and done!!

Still salty about the icon change
by RichardDaniels on 2017/04/19 03:22
But I guess I can move on. The app itself is great. Fills a niche use case very well. Still, I would prefer to see the old icon. iOS 10.3 allows the icon to be set within the app, so maybe developers could provide an option to choose to use the new or old icon?

by Paul X Rippey on 2016/12/20 20:20
I love this app. It doesn't do a lot and I possibly could find all these functions on Apple or Google maps. But here's what I like: I get to define the places that are important to me, and I can see which direction they are in, and how far as the crow flies. That's often useful (finding my car) and always interesting (getting to know a new city). This probably isn't for everybody but if you like it at all you'll probably love it.

This app is a handy tool for those of us who forget where we parked our car. If functions well in all the other areas, find a friend, compass tool, general location finding. It's also nifty for getting distances calculated between locations. Best of all, here's an app developer who will honestly help out and responds quickly! As with other reviewers, I am waiting for the Apple Watch app to come out, but I understand that changes in apps don't happen overnight. It will be worth the wait.

Key pluses: - very simple to save points and get back to them with “radar” - a “car” mode that over-writes - a simple map - connection to Apple or Google maps for long-way directions - the best way of sending a point to another person Minuses: - the “car” mode can be very slow to start up
Good, like it

The developer does a lot of updates fixing his app and pays attention to his app 👍🏻 My rating increased from 3 to 5 now , dev deserves it. He has implemented many new features since my last review, he’s continued to update with bug fixes
Great keeping you locations in one place

Like that I can store all my running places and much more and can choose whether to open in Apple or Google Maps. Only thing missing are icons for Trail, Workout, Fitness.
Apple Watch discontinued?
by Tabler on 2018/11/06 19:45
I previously rated this app with a low score because the Apple Watch app no longer worked. The Watch apps seems to be working well again, so I have given it 5 stars.

This app has been a great life saver in new cities as we travel around. Getting back to our hotel, car rental or other key spots has never been easier. Highly recommend.
Looking for something like this for years
by Mark Friedman on 2018/07/14 16:29
How do I get back to my starting point? And how far away is it? Simple, right? This is the only app that does it and does it well
iCloud access

How does one removes this from your iCloud account? Mine still there even after I delete the app. Anyone else have the same problem?
Anchor pointed
by tswill2 on 2018/08/19 19:50
It’s good on my iPhone but not on my iPad. It needs the ability to work in the landscape mode and also to import locations via google maps or address. Also syncing between iPhone and iPad would be handy.
Already impressed
by badkitty_ on 2018/04/06 18:08
Anything that goes from city to country and can help absentminded me find my car in a parking lot is valuable, in my opinion! Thank you for this app!
Excellent Car Finder
by RandyinVirginia on 2018/04/29 14:39
Shows direction of parked car and it’s location on a map. Took a long time to find a car locator app this good.

I have tried several of these kinds of apps. This one is by far the easiest to use.
Works great.

Lost Anchor Points
by Joe in Cleveland, OH on 2018/11/06 04:46
I've used this app for a couple years. Recently, I deleted a duplicate Anchor Point. Sadly, the app lost five or six Anchor Points that I made when traveling in various parts of the USA. Even though I synced using the cloud, only a few Anchor Points were preserved.
Excellent navigation app
by Frustrated Packer on 2018/09/23 16:19
Easy to use and accurate. Essential for travel.
Great simple app
by Krippled shark on 2018/10/30 22:12
This is a great simple app to record locations for things whenever it’s needed.
Invaluble part of my day!
by tnew57 on 2018/08/24 20:18
I use Anchor to mark points of interest, parking spots, you name it. Very useful and easy to use!
Amazing

One of my top 5 essential traveling apps
by jbvoigt on 2016/04/24 09:04
I travel extensively, and while I have apps for trains, metros, busses, when I’m walking, I almost always rely on Anchor Pointer. You’ve discovered a great restaurant or shop, drop an anchor. Aren’t sure how to get back to the metro station, drop an anchor. I spent the summer in Florence, Italy. Anchor helped me find my way quickly along the twisting streets and alleys. Now in Paris, it’s doing the same thing. Two suggestions to improve it just a little more: 1. I would love a way to organize my Anchors. Currently, the default is last entered, first one to show up in the list. I tag my anchors and would like to organize them, e.g., Paris - great bakery in the 11th. Now I have to scroll down the list (which has gotten pretty long) to find this Paris entry. 2. Sometimes the app needs to recalibrate. No problem; it’s quick. It would be nice to “force” a recalibration sometimes, for example, when you’re coming out of a underground metro.
Just what I was looking for!
by waldemarski on 2014/12/20 21:26
I’ve been looking for something like this (and have tried a number of similar but less useful products) almost from the time I started with iPhones - back with the iPhone 3. The app authors are very responsive to suggestions, and have added the ability to edit the anchor position (useful if you’re on the move and “dropped the anchor” a bit away from the actual site). Some of the other observations (complaints) are not compelling for me. I understand that this is essentially a compass app rather than a routing GPS. The maps are completely adequate for my use (currently exploring in Indonesia) and have been spot-on for location. Well deserving of a 5 star rating!
"Sure, I can find your place again..."
by Mfloreen on 2014/10/08 11:05
I live and work in Africa. Often, I find myself following a friend's car in the dark, through a town or village, to get to his house. Now that I've been there once before, he will expect me to find my way on my own next time. This app is perfect for that. Since it's lightweight, I can launch it and discretely save an anchor point in a few seconds while getting out of the car. And in villages or farms where the roads aren't marked and change often, an arrow and distance is much more helpful than a dot on a blank map. I've got several other GPS apps, but none can save and point back to a waypoint as quickly and easily as this one.
a little buggy
by zencuke on 2016/11/10 17:14
This app seems like a good idea but things started bad. I clicked add anchor. The location was garbage but i hit next anyway. It then asked me to allow GPS (probably the reason the location was garbage.) I named it and went back to the original screen and selected it. it says the location is about 5282 miles away. Since I am still sitting in the same chair that is pretty silly. I decide to delete and start over now that GPS is enabled but I don't see a delete icon anywhere, not even under edit. I suppose some swipe somewhere or other might do it but I don't like guessing game user interfaces. It will probably work fine now but all in all this is about the worst initial 5 minutes I can remember for a new app. Amateur developer I suppose.
Needs work
by Batman2287 on 2016/07/25 02:18
I was looking for a better app to pin my car and I also wanted an app that pins various locations. I thought I found it here, but it has some flaws. I sat in a location and dropped an anchor. I went back to the app later and checked the anchor and it said I was 24 yards from the anchor. I never moved from the spot I dropped it! Also, if you want to get back to your car, it isn't as accurate as it should be. The latitude and longitude pin should always be exactly the same if you drop an anchor or mark your car. For some reason it will take you to the approximate location, but not exactly. It would be a great app if it could be more consistent and accurate. Please improve it so it can be much more reliable.
Support the barometer
by Silva Hawk on 2014/11/20 20:00
Now I have the iPhone 5S only, so that means I don't have the barometer sensor in my phone, but I was thinking of the idea that maybe you guys can add support for it (for the 6 and 6+) so that maybe when people park in a parking garage that has many level of height, and when they anchor the location it records what height the car was at, so when they try to find their car using the app, it shows what level the car was at too instead of just the location on the "ground". Though there is no way to test it so I don't know if you guys might already have this feature in the app. Thanks anyway
Easy and "X" Marked to Spot!!!! Navigation option??
by Johnnymac1028 on 2015/01/18 18:05
Great easy and fun app. The compass is awesome but it would be great to have an option to give navigation directions. Many times I'm at a location that I don't know the address off hand and its not safe to spent time inputting information or looking it up. Using this app I could anchor a location while stopped and then when I need to return, just hit a navigation link and get directions right back to that spot even without an address!! Either way this is an awesome app!! Thanks!
Interesting application for outdoors
by cwhite on 2014/07/26 23:07
Seems like mapping apps are everywhere today. Anchor Pointer however takes a different approach to helping you find your car or friends. Once you drop an anchor you can mail to friends who have Anchor Pointer or use the compass/map interface to return to an 'anchor point'. Anchor Pointer gives you a range, direction and even includes the altitude difference between you and your target. You can build a list of Anchors with meaningful names which means the app allows you to build your own list, I can't wait to try it on my next fishing trip!
