Very cool and interesting! Found out many things in an 8 miles radius that I didn't know that they existed ... After living in this area for 10 years! The application shows orally and graphically on a map with street or aerial image views the location and a very brief summary of the point of interest. All the information is related to the current location of my HTC RADAR smart phone.

Very nice concept. I couldn't figure out a way for me to select a point of interest close to me and have the app read it back to me. Otherwise a great app!

if it would use my direction in combination with GPS... Or overlay poit of interest in the camera. Iew... looking at a 2d map and listening to random names of interesting points in a circle of x km around me feels a bit "Out of user control".

Pretty awesome. Vocal readout works really well. I'm going to go for a walk now, learning about my surroundings :D to the dev: maybe improve the graphics to polish it off
