AroundMe uses the iPhone's GPS capabilities to find businesses that are, well, around you. Choose a category to find nearby movie theaters, gas stations, coffee shops, bars and more. The app lists the points of interest in order of their proximity to your current location, or you can view them as bright red pins on a map.

Tap a destination, and AroundMe will show the address, phone number and distance from your location. From there, you can map out a route, add a destination as a favorite or email the info to read later.
