Practical and fun
I, too, see hotels in Theater category. This is odd, though other popular categories do not seem to have a serious mixup.
Around Me is one of those who "gets" mobile among a large group of peers who don't. At the time I first tested it, iWant already had all functionalities of Around Me (including the cool street view) and more. But Around Me has a much cleaner interface, much smoother learning curve. Navigating to the information you need is much faster this way.
The truly unique feature is its integration with multiple GPS navigation apps, especially Waze that I use a lot. (Waze integration isn't the smoothest, but I suspect this is not something Around Me can solve alone.)
The movie and movie theatre features are becoming more useful. But as of late, it often has difficulty getting Rotten Tomatoes.
As I travel overseas, a different problem shows: dada accuracy. I had noticed incorrect categorisation on some US businesses, but far less frequently than in countries like China, where many hi-tech companies spam search engines by throwing as many popular but irrelevant categories on themselves as they can imagine. Language may have made spam filtering more difficult (assuming Around Me can do filtering at all), but this doesn't explain why "Wanda Plaza Parking" can be a restaurant or what grocery one expects to buy from "Niya Cosmetic Shop."
White girl gets comment for Starbucks & not me
A comment of a white girl says she likes coffee gets her comment approve. Why o why mines didn't about the issues that the app has now from the so call upgrade ? Lots of people said what I said & got their comments approve ad well & mines still didn't get posted! iTunes to be blame that they are the ones messing up the app & people need to rethink who to really blame. Yes some things from Starbucks was removed, but its not their fault as its really iTunes trying new ideas and instead lead to becoming a bad app & getting low stars with bad reviews. Starbucks is a great coffee hangout with their drinks, but not be asking for a tip as its not a fancy restaurant..!
Very helpful, especially when on the road in unfamiliar areas! I was having car troubles and was able to locate a dealer quickly with this app since I was 700 miles from home and had no clue about the area.
