MapsBuddy – a must have companion to the Maps application on your iPhone!
Imagine you are driving (or just hanging out with your friends). To locate the nearest coffee shop (or any such location), you would usually launch Maps, tap the current location button and then type “coffee shop” – that’s too many things to do, not quick and definitely not very convenient!!
Instead use MapsBuddy!! Just launch MapsBuddy and tap on “Coffee Shop” – that will automatically locate and show all coffee shops near your current location on the map. Locate all your favorite places with one tap without the hassle of typing!!
Automatically determines your current location.
With one click locate the nearest bank, bar, chinese restaurant or any such location.
Comes with a built in list of common locations such as “coffee ship”, “gas station”, “hotel”, “pharmacy”, etc.
Customize the location list to suit your needs. You can add your own location names or modify/remove/hide the built in location list.
Organize locations into categories such as Food & Dining, Entertainment, Transportation etc.
Works worldwide with iPhone.
Works with iPodTouch using Wi-Fi in metropolitan areas of US, Europe and Japan using Apple’s built-in SkyHook technology.
