Handy GPS is an easy-to-use GPS information app that provides you with your GPS location fast and easy. You'll see at a glance your current Latitude, Longitude, Altitude, and more.

The mini-map rotates according to your course, or in the 3GS or iPhone 4, to your compass.

You also get access to a Reverse Geo-coder, which translates your current location coordinates to an actual address.

Sharing couldn't be easier, you can email your location, along with a map and a link to Google Maps right within app!

Don't want to email? You can Copy your current Latitude/Longitude, a link to Google Maps, or your current address with a tap of your finger!

"Handy GPS is a cool little app that lets you find your way around by using its digital compass." -GPSCrunch.com "77 Top GPS Applications for iPhone"

(iPhone 3G Users: The compass function is based on a GPS compass. This is not the same as a digital compass)
