Ai Squared App Central - Remind_Me_Where 1.3.3 by Chip Orange
by Chip Orange
Provides access to Google Places and directions (walking, driving, or using the transit system!), allowing you to make use of your current location or to specify locations from your database of points, or a street address, or a GPS receiver, or an IP address. The directions for use of public transit are frankly amazing (provided your city places their transit info on Google).
Allows you to search for Google places by name, by type, by general location, (starting from your current position or one you enter), and to then see their Google or business web page, as well as their address and location.
You can also add a new Google Place, which can then be seen by others.
This app requires the GW toolkit app, and the GPS app (which it will install for you if necessary). It has additional capabilities if you have a GPS receiver attached.
