Interactive Maps and Floor Plans for iPad, iPhone, Android*, PCs, and Macs

Interactive maps and floor plans for iPad and iPhone
Does your web site work on mobile devices? It should because Apple sold more than 40 million iPads in 2011 alone, and 3 million third generation iPads were sold in the first weekend! If your interactive maps and floor plans don't work on these units, millions of people won't be able to see what you have to offer.
Our maps work great great on the original iPad, iPad 2, the new iPad, and the iPhone!
Our maps work on all iPads and iPhones. For the very best performance we strongly recommend that you upgrade to iOS 5. Apple made Safari better and faster so that map zooming and panning is faster and smoother with iOS 5. Our maps also work on Android* devices.
Automatically works on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices without Flash
The floor plans and maps that you make interactive with MapsAlive automatically detect what device they are on and display using the right technology. There's no need to create different maps for mobile devices. For deskstop browsers it's Flash and for mobile devices it's HTML5. Other products only support Flash, but Flash doesn't work on iPad or iPhone.

MapsAlive supports HTML5 and Flash
Why HTML5 is so important
Before mobile devices became so popular, most web sites displayed interactive maps and floor plans using a proprietary technology from Adobe called Flash. That is, until Apple decided not to allow Flash on the iPad, a tablet that has been a phenomenal success. Enter HTML5, a non-proprietary web standard (well almost) that is supported by Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and IE9. HTML5 works great on the iPad, but it doesn't work on IE 6, 7, or 8 which together had more than 46% of market share as of March 2011. What this all means is that if you want the millions of iPad and iPhone users to be able to view your interactive maps and you want your maps to work on legacy desktop browsers, you need a technology that supports both Flash and HTML5. You need MapsAlive for the Mobile Internet.
*Interactive maps you create with MapsAlive work on Android devices, but not all combinations of Android hardware, OS versions, and browsers support all features. Use our 30 day free trial to make sure that the features you want work on the devices you need to support.
