Do NOT trust this app!
Since moving to a new state, I've used the app sparingly due to issues I've had. Out of the ten or so times I've used it to try to drive somewhere, half of the time it takes me to a location that's incorrect. Either the business was closed, moved, or in one case the building had been demolished! This is not only irritating but a waste of my time and gas. To make matters worse, when the app transitions to "Maps" for directions, it only gives the option for walking directions and Uber, never driving directions.
I used the app yesterday to try to find an auto parts store. I got to the location and it was now a pizza place. I spent 45 minutes in traffic during a snowstorm with one wiper blade. Never again.
Do yourself a favor and find another app, or just type in whatever your looking for in the "Maps" app. Don't let this waste your time.
Good app if you're new to an area
I've used this app whenever I'm out of town or in a new area. It gives me a good starting base if I want to know what is around me. It's not perfect, because sometimes what you find in the categories don't match The category. I think separating fast food and sit down restaurants would be a good idea. Also maybe let users indicate if a place is no longer in business so as not to clutter up the screen with useless information.
7-11 is not a Restaurant !!
Too much clutter in the results list by allowing businesses to appear where ever they want to. Should not have to scroll through multiple convenience stores to find a restaurant.
Also would be good to separate fast food & sit down restaurants into 2 separate categories.
