When you move to a new area or go out to vacation… finding places to eat or visit becomes a hard task, imagebut this application called Next2Me can help you. The application is a very complicated, easy to use application that uses your GPS to find things around you. It works a little similar to augmented reality on Android devices, but a lot less attractive and intuitive.

In a recent update, the application added some fixes and even brought in some new features:

I recently released version 1.2 of my latest App "Next2Me" to the US Windows Marketplace.

Next2Me uses GPS and shows you all available businesses around you from over 30 categories. You can view the results on a map, show detailed information. You can also call the target business, send the detail information to your friends by Mail or SMS or save the business to your contact list all by only one click!

And here is the latest BETA version of the upcoming Next2Me 1.3.

You can now manually choose between miles and meters. And for all US and Candians, Next2Me is now searching for "Gas stations"

I changed the GPS code a bit because some users get an exception on some devices.

Again changed the GPS device detection.

[UPDATE 04/25/2010]
o RC1 released
o Next2Me languages: DE, EN, FR, NL
o A menu to tell Next2Me how to search for your GPS device (this will solve several issues, like the exception told by some users and the unwanted bluetooth dialog which is automatically poping up)

So, have fun with Next2Me and send me your suggestions, critics, etc.

You can download this application in Windows Mobile Marketplace or over at XDA-developers for free.
