Ratings and Reviews
I was using the app to try to find some new restaurants in my area. What I found was a bunch of listings for restaurants that have been out of business for over 2 years. Then I tried a few other categories and found the same issue. For example, a bank was listed at a location that has been closed for almost 3 years. It is now a realtor. Office Depot was listed under supermarkets. The incorrect information is never ending. Bottom line, if I’m in an area I don’t know, this app is pretty much useless unless I call every location to see if they’re still in business. Need to find a new app.
My review started at 3 stars but dwindled down to 1 after I saw all of the 5 star ratings from fake accounts. Despicable. Fix your app, don’t manipulate the ratings.
This app was great when you’re in a pinch.
However, on more than one occasion, it has omitted relevant items from lists.
When I was in California I searched for food. “In and Out burger” wasn’t listed at all - what?Not a big deal in itself, just makes me wonder what else I am missing out on.
Lately, I have been getting daily weather updates for California. I don’t live there and I have not given permission for this setting. I have limited the app’s location services to when I’m using the app. Obviously I don’t have the app running constantly in the background.
It doesn’t seem to be respecting my settings. I’m pretty sure this is a big no no for iOS apps.
The battery life on these things is bad enough, I don’t need your app overriding my settings and unnecessarily using resources.
I’m done. Bye bye.
Get the ad-free upgrade
I had mixed feelings about AroundMe until I spent the $3 for the ad-free version. All the good without the bad! The app basically does a search on your key word and displays results on a map. It remembers your last 10 searches so if you’re visiting a lot of different cities and want to find a nearby car wash (for example), it take just 2 touches. Not life altering but quite handy.
