Well done! by Sally0137 (UK)
Brilliant apps! Lead me The way :-). You can never get lost with this app.

Best locator app I've found! by H-Tastic (US)
I'm very impressed by this app. It has a map and list view option. It shows everything in my area, even places I didn't know about. It's straight forward and easy to use. If you find a place you're interested in, you can easily get more information such as phone number, directions and web address. This is how all locator apps should be but aren't.

Great app by Cornylious (Canada)
I was in the middle of nowhere in northern Ontario on my way camping with the wife and it found everything I needed to stop for along the way since I was too lazy to figure it out for myself. Very handy

Fantastic by wanab30 (USA)
No matter where we travel....we search and find what we are looking for instantly. Before a trip we will sometimes check out the hotels, restaurants.....etc. from this app. Poof, instant itinerary. BEST EVER!
