What's New in Version 2.0.1
Gas search maps can now have their location changed directly and show updated results.
Movie listings for a theater can now be viewed by date.
I don't like the new set up. The way it looks now is an attempt to be sleek and clean, but is actually more difficult to quickly get to things. Also, restaurants for example, aren't all coming up in order of distance like they used to.
Some are sponsored so I guess paid to be moved ahead of closer ones to the top( which I don't like), and some are out of order. Like a Waffle House 3 minute walk from my house being behind a Burger King 2 miles down the road.
Please restore the old look and definitely the old function.
Love this new update and I love the new UI. It’s so easy to use and to search for what I’m looking for. I like the option of searching events by venue. There are a lot of good places around Boston and I never know what’s going on, but with this app it makes thing so easy!
I had this app on my old galaxy S2 and used it a lot. I switched to the iPhone 5s in Nov and try other similar apps. None were as good. I installed the pyont again and love the new features.
