HERE MAPS, production of Nokia but now a bought by car companies Group. In order to revamp it with their business, guys have renamed the app from HERE MAPS to HERE WeGo. HERE Apps LLC has rolled out a major update to the apps with some new features and improvements along with the change in name.
Company has given full explanation about why they left HERE MAPS name and opted for HERE WeGo. Let’s see what they say:
On the name change. ‘HERE Maps’ was a bit too generic, we think. Too similar to a bunch of other, lesser apps. And the truth is that very few regular users open our app to look at a map – they want to get somewhere and find the fastest way to do that. Putting its main use – getting to places – front and centre, and into the name, is intended to help people understand what the app is for, what to expect from it and how to use it.
When you open HERE WeGo, the ‘Where to?’ instruction in the search box invites you to enter a destination. Input this, and you’re taken straight to choosing between different modes of transport to get to where you want to go – without that extra click on the ‘find a route’ icon that used to be at the bottom of the screen. Bam!
Company is giving an explanation as they have introduced Search Box which says ‘Where To ?’ and when you select Mode of Transport then you have to select where to go. So they merged the words and came out with HERE WeGo.
