Mellow Yellow Maps is a location-based application that provides detailed information about geographical regions all around the world. It employs Google or MapQuest maps and location services to find businesses, both locally and abroad. With its intuitive interface, it is easy to retrieve information on a particular business. Searches can be done either by category or on a name basis. It uses the device's built-in GPS to precisely pinpoint the device's location in the world. There are many familiar map types to choose from, such as road map, satellite, hybrid and terrain. Users can locate businesses from any point in the world by simply moving the map marker to a different location and searching within a set radius from that point.
