Want to know where the nearest grocery store is? Pharmacy? Bar? This app will help you with that. Not all that useful for the neighborhoods you know this app is beyond handy for traveling as finding these places in a space you’re not familiar with can be very difficult.
While I suppose not everyone wants to go clothes shopping while at a conference or traveling I did find this apps lack of a shopping category for clothes rather bizarre. Personally I’d suspect this is more interesting to most than say “theatre” but perhaps there are more theatre fans out there than I imagine. I guess if you’re traveling for pleasure in New York you might well want to know where you can take in a show, but it seems just as likely you might need a nice outfit for it right?
The extra bonus of having a weather forecast on the app is especially nice for traveling even though it’s likely not the most accurate forecast. Basic information is better than nothing.
