Around Me for iPhone

I was pointed in the direction of this app yesterday by a colleague at work.

Around me use the iPhone location ability to tell you what facilities are close by. It's not perfect - I'm not sure where its sources it's data from, but hey, it is free!

If you have ever found yourself looking for a cafe, ATM or bookstore nearby, you might consider this app a godsend. AroundMe 1.0, a new iPhone app by TweakerSoft, makes it easy to figure what’s nearby. By leveraging (why can't they just say "using" for gawd's sake?) the iPhone’s unique abilities, AroundMe quickly acquires the users location and allows them to choose the nearest bank, bar, gas station, hospital, hotel, movie theatre, restaurant, supermarket, theatre and taxi.
