- Minor bug fixing
I think this app is very beneficial. For someone like me who is not the best at making decisions on where to go, this App helps make my decision process a whole lot easier. It is great if you are visiting a city for the first time too and don't know where to go. It is a good App for anyone who wants to try out new places as well. Also, for example, if you are short on gas and cannot find a gas station, this app will help you find the closest one to you so you don't have to aimlessly drive around and possibly run out of gas. The only thing about this App that I think needs to be fixed is the location settings because sometimes it does not register my current location or puts me in a different location from the one I'm currently in.
I want to rate this so much higher but I cannot.
I want to rate it higher, but this app comes so close but just fails. They used to get their data via the Google Maps API, but they must not know that it has changed because they still limit the number of return finds in a search to a ridiculously low number.
Also, the sort of the things I want to use most often should be a standard feature. I first enjoyed this app in helping me find restaurants but now it's useless and Google Maps does it better with more options. I'm about to delete it all together.
Great idea, but the most important feature is at the bottom with no sort option to show the things I'd use the most. If you at least offered this as a feature of the paid app, it'd be great. My number 1 reason for using the app is restaurants and stores. They are at the bottom.
Also, you limit the search for these to either a certain distance or limited number. This makes it okay but not good and many times listed when there are a lot choices. Consider fixing this.
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.)
