POIViewer - Manage your POI files.
By FrenchKiss Development
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
POIViewer is a POI management app with a lot of features.
A perfect companion for your favorite GPS app.
POIViewer can display thousands of POI on the map using a smart cluster algorithm.
And if you really have a lot (>10000), you can selectively show/hide groups of POI on the map.

What's New in Version 1.8.3
-An alternate map provider (tap the i button on the map) (not the G. but one based on openstreetmap)
-A new 'Nearby' screen showing the POIs nearby your position or nearby another POI, sorted by distance, and updated while you move.
-Alerts and background alerts in the nearby screen for given POI lists.
-Photos screen has been overhauled (plus WikiCommons added as an image provider).
-Instagram photos have been removed because they are not usually relevant regarding POI documentation. Wikimedia commons photo have been added.
As usual when a lot of work has been done, mistakes and bugs might find their way in, if you find any, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (instead of leaving a raging one star review).
Speaking of reviews, happiness is meant to be shared, so if you are happy with POIViewer, share your feelings by leaving a happy review.
Really a great app for looking at all my poi's on a map. I've got more than 900 waypoints/poi's and this is a great tool to locate what and where I need to go, I can also make to ones to enter them into my gps. Now that we have a choice of gps coordinates it makes it easy to call my buddies with coordinates to help them. Would like the ability to text or email a poi to co workers maybe in the next update. Thank you for for the Geat App!
Been using this to import Garmin data points (converted to KML for Google Earth using GPS Babel). Worked like a charm. I can email the files to myself / long click / and import it into the app. Very impressed.
