Nicely done. If it had a map view, it would be even better.

Не работает

Пишет что нет соединения с интернетом. Не хочет работать ни через 3\4g, ни через wi-fi

I'm not interested in what is nearby, necessarily. Sometimes I want to find hotels or restaurants in other places. Can't do it with this




Platform: Mobile

Useless on my HTC8X. All it does is say it's searching and then launches the camera. It doesn't find anything.
