App helps you locate services you need on the road

Aroundme AppSome times you’re on the road and you need to find something other than a convenient parking space and a decent hot meal. No matter how familiar you are with an area, you may need some help, and a local person is not always at hand.

The AroundMe app is almost as good as the all-knowing guy at the fuel desk or the waitress who’s lived there all her life.

AroundMe quickly identifies your position and allows you to choose the nearest bank, hospital, hotel, theater, supermarket, taxi, and other services. It delivers a list of all the businesses in the category you have tapped on along with the distance from where you are.

It’s free for both Android and iOS.
