Default Which version of the app?

Hi- I'm about to download the Villages GPS app, and I had heard that there was a "free" version and a "paid" version. I only see the "paid" version in the google play store. Was the free version discontinued?

Reason I ask was that it seemed folks felt the free version had better stability and features (for $6.99 for the paid version, I'm not complaining - just wondering).

Thanks in advance

Download The Villages app, not the GPS app.
The Villages app has directions in it.

Download The Villages(R) App Today

Hi and Thank you for contacting us.

Just so you know, we are Villagers that own this app and put 95% of the profits back into the app with all of the constant updates, new categories etc. We only advertise here on Talk of The Villages.

We started the app back in 2013 because there was only a paper app back then and we were constantly lost lol.

Six months ago we redesigned the whole app from scratch with all new code so it is very stable.

There are a lot of reasons we think you would like our app over "The Developers" app.

We listen to every single feedback and reply to every single email within 12 hours at the max. We have voice navigation and everything is there for you in the categories.

Originally we just wanted to help users get from A to B without holding on to the paper map while driving. After all these years, it just snowballed with our loyal users and the constant updates that we have kept it going.

So we are still at it and trying our best to keep up with the new and latest projects.

We think for the price of a Quarter Pounder with Cheese Meal...it isn't a bad deal :-)
