Spider Tracks Ltd today announced the international launch of its iSpiderViewer, available as a free download from the iTunes app store.
iSpiderViewer allows people to track their aircraft or vehicles on their iPhones, making it even easier and more convenient to watch over people and assets when on the go.
The application enables users to track multiple aircraft or vehicles. It not only shows the most recently updated position of the aircraft or vehicle in real-time but also the full track, including information showing where it took off and when it landed. If the user has multiple spiders, they are ordered based on the date or time of their last track. Symbols indicate the spiderâ€™s status and whether the aircraft is moving, is being monitored or if it has generated an emergency alert.
Spidertracks marketing manager Rachel Donald says the iPhone app.enables people to track their people and assets from anywhere.
â€œRight from the beginning we made it easy for clients to see where their people or vehicles were by making tracks accessible over the internet from any PC. The iSpiderViewer takes that accessibility mobile. It means operations managers donâ€™t have to be glued to their PCs to carry out flight following and partners or friends can see exactly where their pilots are on their phones.
â€She says being able to view an aircraftâ€™s movements on the iPhone enhances spidertrackâ€™s capability as a safety system. â€œIf a pilotâ€™s contact receives a text because an alert has been generated by spidertracks, the recipient can immediately view the track and the aircraftâ€™s last reported position without having to seek out a PC. Itâ€™s another step towards reducing rescue times and potentially savinglives.
â€œAnd in keeping with the spidertracksâ€™ philosophy the iSpiderViewer offers all the operational benefits our customers have come to expect from spidertracks â€“ but it is naturally simple to use.â€
There is no charge to download the app from the store. Search for spidertracks on iTunes to find the download.
