Getting there.


The entire concept of the app is great, just wish more people used it as the closest location to me with updates is a few cities away. Hopefully this changes

Nothing near me


Love the concept of this app, I just wish it had my town on its list of McDonald’s because they seem to always be down! Lol the closest ones are in Atlanta ... almost 2 hours away from me. Hopefully this changes soon so I can add it again. Deleting for now

Ah ok Jdeanne! Thank you and I'll update you once we add more cities.

Needs work

I have no idea where the locations are that it displays. No Facebook integration for login. I’ll give it 2 stars for the great idea but the apps does need work. Also not sure my a login would be required anyway. Just use the users location.

Hey Mo Mo Ya Ya. If you go the Map Screen (tap the icon at the bottom right corner of the screen) and tap the compass icon (at the top right), the map will zero in on your area.
