- Natalie Avon, CNN

Where To? will simply get you where you want to go with a fun, painless interface that caters to your personal preferences. See your options on the built-in map or in a list sorted by distance. With just a few taps, you can find any type of place you are looking for close to wherever you are!
YOUR LOCAL GUIDE
Where To? is your local guide in your pocket! It provides you with photos, videos, descriptions, special offers, business hours, and more. All you have to do is choose — then call to make a reservation or check the place’s homepage using the built-in web browser.

The included Where To? for iMessage lets you search for locations and share them with your friends in a conversation without leaving the Messages app.
Where To? includes dinner menus for more than 500,000 restaurants. Compare the menus to select your favorite dining location or decide what to eat while you’re waiting to be seated!

SHOWS YOU THE WAY
Whether by car, bike or foot using the built-in route planner or any of more than 50 apps from the App Store — Where To? gets you where you want to go. The standard Maps app, Navigon, TomTom, Google Maps, and many others are supported.
Turn the key and let your car guide you to the destination. You can send locations to supported onboard navigation systems from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi.
HAVE A PEBBLE SMART WATCH?
Use your Pebble to reach your destination. The free Pebble companion app displays the direction and distance so you can keep your iPhone in the pocket while walking or driving. Note: This feature uses GPS in the background to stream location updates to Pebble. Continued use of GPS running in the background can considerably decrease battery life.

SHARE WHAT YOU FIND
Share location infos by email, text message, Facebook, Twitter, or AirDrop with your friends. Or add the place to your contacts.
¿HABLA ESPAÑOL?, PARLEZ-VOUS FRANÇAIS?

Ratings and Reviews
Lacking that Wow Factor
Okay, I like the update and that it is very efficient. But my problem with it is that the program has lost a lot of its wow factor. I can't imagine that one would add 3-D in the current OS system since everything is going flat, but it needed something to make it exceptionable. For instance the maps could have a lot more color and could be a little bit more 3-D the dial could have a little bit more color and so forth.......something. Now that may be immaterial to most people but when you've bought this app based upon that wow factor then without it, makes it a little less palatable. I used to love opening up the app in it's previous version. It felt as if I was in a very elegant study(and that the bread ground the beautiful black dial etc.). Now it feels like I'm in a board room with a bunch of stodgy professors and no one has any interest in any other color but Tan. No, no ladies in red here.
Interface Update Improved -- Accuracy NOT
Good to see the app brought up to date with new app standards. But pretty pathetic database when it comes to categorized location accuracy. For instance in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area there are over 12 movie theaters and the app locates 2. That should be easy to get right but it's a fail. Randomly searching for location for playing darts pulls up dart playing locations, clubs (fine) but Dodge Dealerships (you know like the Dodge Dart model car). Clearly they are using simple keyword searches and not truly human curated content. You do better with Google. This fact alone negates the value of the app. And the developers are not playing by the new rules for using the while in use location services despite the feedback they are ignoring.
It's not worth downloading and certainly not worth paying for. Use Yelp. It's magnitudes better.
Still the best app going!
"Where To" has been at the very top of my app list for years. I've not found anything else quite like it. Restaurants, shopping, services, you name it, you can find it nearby no matter where you are then get all sorts of great information about the business you're looking for. Phone, website, map, link to menus for restaurants, reviews. and so on. I love the new release with the expanded user reviews and upgraded user interface. I find it more easy to navigate and read. It's like google maps, yelp, chowhound, and TripAdvisor all rolled into one. Indispensable for travelers. Keep up the good work, folks!
