In the run up to iOS 14 we've been working hard to create a great Home Screen widget experience for users. You might have seen a peek of this on Twitter.
We're pleased to announce that ETA's powerful widgets arrived alongside iOS 14. If you're existing ETA customer simply head to the App Store and update to 2.4.12.
At launch we have two widgets that are available in a number of sizes. Our 'Commute' widget shows travel time and traffic status between two locations. The 'Directions' widget acts and a quick launch into your favourite turn by turn navigation app.
In case you missed the news ETA's iOS 14 Home Screen Widgets are available now! Get travel time, traffic status and directions. Supporting driving, walking and public transit.https://t.co/TysrFgoyOA#iOS14 #IOS14homescreen #ios14widgets #widgets pic.twitter.com/YisUAA63ol— ETA (@whatsmyeta) September 25, 2020
As an added bonus, if you take advantage of ETA's powerful location settings you can launch navigation to different navigation apps depending on the location chosen!
Something pretty cool with ETA's new widget. It's so easy to launch into turn by turn right from your home screen. ETA supports Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze and more. Best of all, you can use more than one at once! #ioshomescreen #iOS14 #iOS #widget pic.twitter.com/jRw1R5z9kf
