Great app, battery saving tip
This is my app of choice if I need to find any local store, restaurant or business. It's well designed and just works.
I recently experienced that the app used location services in the background. I contacted the support and they promptly helped me. By opting out of the Placed service in Settings > About > Legal and disabling background fetch in the system Settings I could stop this behavior. Not sure if it actually drained my battery but at least it feels good to stop the background location service.
This has always been a good app that I use infrequently. Since iOS added the ability to see battery usage by app, I've seen that the background location refresh costs me 2% or more on days when I don't use the app at all.
They've chosen to not include a "While Using" option for their location preferences; it's allow the app to drain the battery when you aren't using it, or allow no access to location (which makes this app kind of useless). I've turned off location services for the app and that's probably the last time I'll use it.
Location services glitch
This app is really bad not because of the functionality, but because of it's internal problems with the iPhone! The app works great, but the location services is always on. There is no way to turn off the location icon after using the app, even after rebooting the device. To fix the problem I simply deleted the app and it went away..save some time and brain cells and find a better app that is used friendly.
