Store Hours tells you if a store or venue is open or closed and his location on the map
Right now there's a folk out there wondering what's the open/close time of a store or venue. I bet my bottom dollar that's happening while I write this. Actually, we all have been in that situation. Store Hours is a little app to help people turning that "wondering" into "certainty". It features a huge database of the opening time of thousands of stores across the country (only USA, Germany, Austria and Switzerland supported so far).
You can search specific cities or leave the app finding your current location using your device's GPS. You can also bookmark some places and even add manually store address and storehours to your own database. In addition, the store selected will be displayed on a map, and you'll be able to share to whoever interested. Users can even add stores to the database.
The premise backing this app is great. However, the app should be improved in some regards. First off and urgent: interface. It feels like a web app, it is tricky and needs a holistic redesign. Second, the app is only available in four countries, people from other countries we'd probably also love having such a service. Finally, even in the countries it do work, it misses some important stores.
Using the app is easy! Just enter the “what” and “where” of the requested stores or offices into the search screen and the app will do the rest. Activate the GPS search for quicker results and find open stores in your current location. Within seconds, the app will locate the closest store branches and display store hours, addresses, contact information and distance to your present location. In addition, you can check out the available map view for more precise directions.
The iStoreHours directory already covers over 4 million entries in the US. These entries come from more than 25,000 iStoreHours scouts who have eagerly uploaded all the data. Become an iStoreHours scout yourself and make money with your own entries by registering at www.istorehours.com.
Registration is free and can make your future searches even easier! You no longer have to memorize all those crazy store hours because now you can save your favorites for quick and easy access. Best of all, your ‘favorites’ list is even available when your app is not connected to the server! What’s more, your most frequent searches can be stored and be available right at your fingertips.
Another handy feature of your app is the ability to suggest new store hours without registering at all! Simply take a photo of the sign displaying the store hours, include the name and location of the store, and send it to us to post on the site.
Most importantly, thanks to our advertisements this app remains free of charge!

.... however, predictably, not all store hours are accurate. Some are woefully incorrect. It would be great if there was a way to edit the hours when this happens. The other thing it needs is to be able to select a 12-hour clock rather than the 24-h
