Very useful app
I've used this app both in the city where I reside and at our cabin which is more remote. The app works very well. It's pretty accurate. It missed a couple of restaurants at home which is no big deal. However I used it on the way to the cabin and it was accurate in locating restaurants, gas stations and pharmacies. It changes your location pretty fast when you're traveling and it's easy to change the location if you are planning ahead to locate for example a gas station or restaurant. I like that it gives the mileage from where you are to the designated selection. And the gas prices were also pretty accurate which was handy. It's a good app and I recommend it.
Useful but not spot on
I love this app for some things and not for others. It's a great first stop for a quick glance around an unfamiliar city. The local attractions/nearby section can give you some interesting touristy info, like street art, that you might otherwise miss. The movies and concerts sections have always been accurate and I frequently use them before hitting google because they're quick. Some of the other info is less reliable though and needs to be double-checked before you take a trip to a non-existent restaurant. I've just learned to cross-reference, but I still like the app for the neat format and the parts of it that do work well.
I learned about this app on Fathers Day. The restaurant we went to was so crowded, a 2 line wait. The wait was probably 2 to 3 hours. It was 7 of us. We did not want to wait that long. My daughter had this app. She was driving. She handed me her phone & told me about AroundMe. WOW!!! Just like that, I found a restaurant that was 5 min from where we were driving. I called and they took us right away. The service was superb, the food was amazing. Thanks AroundMe for putting top notch businesses in your app. I recommend it.
