Unique application for providing the official geographic addressing system adopted in the Emirates of Dubai, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah & Ras Al Khaimah.
Dubai is the first city in the world to use numbers called "Makani Number" to exactly locating building’s entrance(s). Simple addressing, consists of 10 digits only (E.g.: 30032 95320) which doesn’t require using names, codes or explaining the location’s direction. Mentioning only numbers for describing location suits multi-nationalities with different languages in the U.A.E.

The application aims to make it easy for all residents and tourists to search, define & locate places and enjoy navigating to desired destinations by using mobiles, tablets, desktop & GPS navigational devices accurately and quickly.

All these features are available in this release & are working perfectly WITHOUT the need of the INTERNET connection from the second time of usage!
