Video Tutorial: AroundMe


Drivers who find themselves with some layover time and who want to find something to do but don’t know the area, should check out the AroundMe app, available to both Apple and Android users.

This free app can be found at iTunes or the Android marketplace.

According to iTunes, AroundMe quickly identifies your position and allows you to choose the nearest Bank, Bar, Gas Station, Hospital, Hotel, Movie Theatre, Restaurant, Supermarket, Theatre and Taxi.
AroundMe shows you a complete list of all the businesses in the category you have tapped on along with the distance from where you are.

For every listing you can choose to see its location on a Map, view the route from where you are, add the information to your contact list or even email the information to a friend.

The app helps you locate:

Taxis, bars, parking, supermarkets,  theaters, pharmacies, pubs, coffee shops, hospitals, banks and ATMs, and gas stations.

For example, if you want to go to dinner and a movie, the movie theater link will direct you to the nearest theater and will also show you movies and show times.  The restaurant icon will link you to restaurant reviews and menus.

This is a must have app for any traveler.
