EghtesadOnline: A Persian-language navigation mobile application ‘Daal’, developed by students at Sharif University of Technology is making a splash.
The app has over 10,000 active users since its launch in February, ISNA reported. Daal offers turn-by-turn voice navigation, real-time traffic, and other location-specific alerts. There are foreign GPS-based apps like Google Maps and Waze which offer similar services in English.
