Major cities are big and crowded; for somebody who is visiting, getting lost is not very difficult. You need someone who knows the city and can guide you around the areas to help you reach your destination. If a friend like that is not available, then you could alternatively make use of an app called Lumatic City Maps.
Lumatic City Maps is a free to use smartphone application for iOS devices. The app is sized at nearly 12 MB and it runs on an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. The app is ideal for travellers to major cities who need help in finding their way around. You can pick the city you are in and type in your destination. You are then provided directions based on landmarks and visible businesses; this makes finding your way easier.
Currently the app covers 27 metropolitan areas in the US, with more added regularly.
