Korea-based Independent Software Vendor Fundelmental created the Mapi app to provide users with a real-time and easy-to-use navigation system. The Mapi app allows users to make and send directions of their current location and share them with other users, it offers step-by-step directions, identifies the shortest route, alerts users of real-time traffic issues and gives suggestions on the best route based on the mode of the user’s transportation. Another feature of the app gives users the option to view routes to their destination that other users have posted, and reports if they were recommend or discouraged by other Mapi users based on their experience.

The app name Mapi is a combination of the words ‘map’ and ‘Wikipedia’, which represents Fundelmental’s vision that the app will provide users with a reliable Map 2.0 system because it is based on user experience and draws from crowdsourcing. Through the app, Fundelmental hopes to improve transportation in their region by providing people with guidance on the fastest way to get their location in real-time.
