Recently updated for iOS 8 and the shiny new Apple devices, AroundMe is a great solution for seeing what's nearby. While the interface is fresh, the listings are not always accurate: you might find an ATM that no longer exists, for example.
The listings are thorough and clear, and the map view is very usable. This also works wherever in the world you may be - so it's perfect for your summer holidays.
Free-text search doesn't seem to work all the time. We don't recommend using the weather notification system, as it noticeable drains your iPad or iPhone's battery. There's not much beyond a simple directory here, and we think you're better off with Google Maps, which is more up-to-date.

The Nearby listing allows you to find information using Wikipedia about what is around you.

NB: When AroundMe Weather push feature is active the app may use your location even when it isn’t open, which can decrease device battery life.
