- Minor bug fixing
Not only does this program shows you
Directions it also gives you phone numbers to call and see if that establishment is still in business. I can see an improvement that can be made... That is when you are searching for a particular retail or restaurant and your close by. It won't bring up their other locations. You sometimes need to drive out of the area to find the other locations. Wow! Why am I writing a review under someone's review?
Anyway, this app I know is a free version. But it needs a lot of work to become user reliable, as mentioned above, you have to drive out of the area to get multiple listings, there are restaurants that are not recognized. At times I get no results when requesting a business, when I know they are in existence in that area. To be honest I get better results by google, and it is free! For this reason I give it 2 stars.
Blocking ad pops every time
(My review constantly gets lost) In the latest updates, a blocking ad always pops up whenever you try to read details about a movie, even if you open it a second time immediately. Even worse, sometimes this can be a video ad that you cannot skip. This is totally nonsensical, compared with other ad-supported apps. I don’t mind occasional pop ups. But every time?
I initially rated this 4 stars, because I liked AroundMe’s simpler navigation, even though it developed some of the more fun ways to use location later than other similar apps. Too bad I have to drop it to 1 star. (I would go 0 star if App Store allows.)
This is one of my favorite 5 apps. I use it everywhere I go. I travel a lot and I am never without the references I need no matter where I am. Need an ATM, it lists them. Fast food or a gourmet dinner, it finds them. Traveling on an interstate, low on gas, it lists all of the nearby options. How about a parking garage in an unfamiliar area? Problem solved. I can't see anyone using this app who doesn't absolutely love it.
