Around Me for iPhone

I’m embarrassed to say this, but I honestly don’t know what I would do without my iPhone. It’s so much more than just a phone in the same way that Kitt from Knight Rider is more than just a car. What can I say? I am a product of my generation.

Take the Around Me application for iPhone. This app takes GPS capabilities to a whole new level. You can easily search for coffee shops, banks, hotels, gas, groceries, restaurants and so much more. The app uses the GPS function to gather a list of destinations starting with the closest one.

You can use this app anywhere in the city of Houston and you don’t even need the internet. That’s right, Around Me takes the Google Search step of finding the closest Denny’s right out of the equation. I always use it when I get a Berryhill’s craving on the road or need to find a Wal-Mart in a pinch. I just search for the place I need and Around Me tells me how close it is.

This is a great app if you’re new to Houston or even new to your neighborhood. In a city the size of Houston, you can live here your entire life and feel like a fish out of water in a new neighborhood. Around Me can help you get your bearings as well as discover hidden gems. You can search a list of restaurants, bars, and cafes in your area and even save a list of your favorite destinations.

Around Me is just another way that technology makes our lives so much easier. Don’t have an iPhone? Lots of GPS systems have similar features. They’re perfect for those nights when you want to go out but can’t decide where to go.

Download Around Me to get to know Houston just a little bit faster! Best of all, it’s free!
