APN Releases New Version of Settlement-Tracking iPhone / iPad App

Washington, DC -- Americans for Peace Now (APN) today announced the
release of an updated version of its interactive map application for
the iPhone and iPad devices.

The new version updates "Facts on the Ground: APN's Map
Project," the unique interactive mapping tool that APN released in
September. The app gives anyone, anywhere, a comprehensive real-time
view of what is happening on the ground in the West Bank.
In addition to the iPhone and iPad app, the application is available
online in English, , and will soon be available in Hebrew as well.

The new version of the iPhone / iPad app includes several improvements.
It features a full list of all 120 West Bank settlements for easy
searching and navigation. In addition, it features an in-depth
explanation of the various layers that the map offers, and fixes
several minor graphical bugs.

APN's Map Project is the only application that allows anyone with a
computer or a smartphone access to comprehensive, factual information
about Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Since it was launched, more
than 50,000 users explored it online or downloaded it to their
i-devices. The media interest in the app has been overwhelming, with
stories in major US and world publications, national radio and
international television stations.

"APN continues to develop the service by improving its
functionality, by adapting it to other platforms -- we are exploring an
Android version -- and by seeking new ways to use it," said Debra
DeLee, APN's President and CEO. "We were delighted with the
initial reactions to this revolutionary tool. With the public's
feedback in mind, we are making it even better. As an organization that
cares deeply about Israel's future, it is imperative for us that both
Israelis and friends of Israel worldwide understand the situation on
the ground in the West Bank, and its impact on efforts to achieve
security, stability and peace for Israel."

The application is free for download on iPhones and iPads through
iTunes under the name "APN Facts on the Ground Map Project,"
or through a link on APN's web site: www.peacenow.org/map
