GPS, Personal Database, Google Maps & Places, Yelp Reviews — Integrated Into One Mobile Web App. And It’s Free.
Places.com integrates Google Maps and the GPS location services on your device, with your own personal places database that you build over time. It accesses Google Places for descriptions, location, contact information, ratings and reviews on most establishments. Google Maps Application Programmer Interfaces (APIs) provide real-time maps, directions and shortest path traveling sequences. Your personal database contains places, contacts, check-ins, notes and photos that you’ve saved, as well as your subscriber parameters. Places.com also integrates summary place reviews from Yelp for nearby place searches.
What You Can Do with Places.com on your iPhone or Android
As this website explains, Places.com is designed to make it easy for you to find places, save them, see maps, see places nearby, share pictures, and get directions. Places.com will even route the shortest path for visiting several places in optimized order, to minimize travel time.
Places.com also integrates your contacts with your places, simplifying remembering associates when somewhere, or letting someone know where you are. The check-in feature records where you are at a certain time and place. You can optionally share your location while checked-in among selected contacts if you choose.
Works on Tablets, Notebooks, Laptops and Desktops Too!
Places.com will use either the geolocation services on your mobile device for determining your current location, or you can specify a default current location.
