    an experiment by Google's Niantic labs using a bunch of sources to suggest places of interest based on your location. You use it like this: Turn it on, select the sources and go explore the city. When you pass near a place of interest it will notify you with information about it, very nice for a walking tour

    Good for a spontaneous Saturday drive. Will provide unknown historical data, good photo spots, lesser known activities, good restaurants, and more. Turn your neighborhood into a little adventure.
