If you have been ardently checking out the latest in GPS technology, you may have heard of NDrive. This is a recently launched iPhone app that allowed users access to close to 1.8GB of US map data for an astonishingly low price of $2.99.
While users continue to flock to the app to get access to the treasure trove of map information,we have also been hearing that users who have already purchased the app have complained that the application appears to have mysteriously disappeared from their iDevices. Speculations are rife that Apple may have used a kill-switch to remote wipe these apps off from the users’ iDevices because it is being suspected that not all of NDrive’s 1.8GB of data is licensed.
If these rumors are true, this is the first ever time when Apple has applied the kill switch on one of the apps. However, while Cupertino continues to stay mum on this issue, few people point out that their copies of NDrive continue to stay on their iPhones. It is not entirely clear how some users alone managed to lose their copies.
Meanwhile, NDrive has issued the following statement.
“It has recently come to our attention that customers are experiencing difficulties with our iPhone navigation applications. Accordingly, NDrive acknowledges that our software listed in the Apple iTunes Store have been dissolved until further notice. We are currently working to address and improve the situation in an efficient manner. This issue has been assigned a maximum urgency level as we cannot inquire on the duration of our void from said markets. We are attentively listening and working hard to address all inquisitions submitted.”
