AroundMeAroundMe by Attorno A Me S.R.L. is probably one of the most useful and convenient apps I’ve ever downloaded.  If you travel at all, you really should have this app.  Have you ever been to a city you don’t know too much about and wondered if there were any good restaurants nearby, rather than just hitting up the first one you happen to drive by?  Have you ever ran out of your prescription and needed to have it filled ASAP, but didn’t have a clue what pharmacy to have your doctor send it to?  That happened to my husband and me one time.  We told the doctor what city we were in and he just picked a pharmacy.  We actually ended up driving about 45 minutes one-way, just to get there to pick it up.  Come to find out.  There was a pharmacy a few minutes from our hotel, which was really too bad.  We wasted nearly two hours and it could have taken just a few minutes.

 

AroundMeAroundMe eliminates things like our pharmacy incident!  This incredible app uses your GPS location to tell you everything that’s around you including banks/ATMS, bars, coffee shops, gas stations, hospitals, hotels, movie theaters, parking, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, taxis and even pharmacies!  It separates the search results by distance.  What ever is closest to you is shown at the top of the list!  You can view your search results in a list, on a map or in live view!  I did a search for restaurants the last time we were away, and that’s when I discovered that many of the restaurants listed in AroundMe actually show a menu, which is simply amazing!

 

AroundMe couldn’t be more easy to use.  The layout is clear and to the point.  As soon as you open the app, you’re shown all your search options.  Once you tap one, you’re shown the nearby list!  It’s that simple.  Make life a little easier and download AroundMe!

 

Here’s how iTunes describes AroundMe:

AroundMe is your ideal day-to-day companion.
