    Never miss out on something interesting or unique when you are travelling.

    "See the World Around You"


    World Around Me allows you to point your phone anywhere and find out interesting facts, unique places, or even events as they are happening. It makes travelling easier, helps you do new things, and even points you in the direction of amenities.


    No matter what you are looking for, World Around Me helps you to find it. There are many different categories so you can look for everything from a club to a laundromat. It works well and even takes suggestions from people who are familiar with the area. There is also a ton of helpful information about what each place offers.


    This one will definitely eat up your battery as you use it, especially if you don't have access to WiFi. It also isn't completely accurate at times, especially when there is a lot going on around you.
