Each month I highlight web or mobile apps that are useful to lawyers. Sometimes the apps are developed specifically for lawyers and other times I feature non-legal apps that are nevertheless interesting to lawyers.
Today’s app is AroundMe. This iOS app makes it easy for you to locate just about any type of business located close to wherever you happen to be. That’s why it’s such a useful app if you’re travelling, although it’s just as helpful when used in your hometown as well.
With AroundMe, it’s a simple matter to find nearby businesses–the app organizes them into categories for you.
So whether you’re looking for a bank or ATM, a restaurant, a gas station, a hospital, a grocery store or more, AroundMe will let you know what’s near you. But it does more than just locate businesses. You can also access information about movie times, the local weather, or even call a taxi.
And what’s more-this app is free. You can download the iPhone and iPad apps here.
