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."
One of the best apps out there.
Of my close to 300 apps, this is definitely in the top 10. It seems to be updated regularly, so it is always accurate, it is easy to find any of the places you are looking for because of the way they linked together with maps and you can physically see where you are and you can even see yourself moving toward your location. Basically, get this app at whatever the price is.
Love knowing whats around me
Great app when you are in an unfamiliar area and looking for something. Don't feel the businesses are updated often enough. Not sure if that's on you or the business. Went looking for a store yesterday only to find out it was gone for a year. Another store that I knew was in the area but not the exact location was only showing up as one 30 miles away. Called and got directions and it was close to me. Not sure why not showing up
