iPhone Apps: AroundMe Now with Scout for Apps

Hey iPhone Users – Have you ever tried out the AroundMe app?

With it, anyone with an iPhone can find just about any location near them. From pubs, supermarkets, and movie theaters to pharmacies, hospitals, and coffee shops, AroundMe makes it easy to find specific things wherever you are. After using it, I have to say, it’s really pretty simple to use.

And today, AroundMe pushed out an update which makes getting to those locations even easier using Scout for Apps.

For those of you who read our blog, you know that not long ago, we launched Scout for Apps, giving any app maker or website developer an easy way to add voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation to their product.

The folks at AroundMe were one of the earliest developers to sign up for Scout for Apps and I'm excited to tell you that it's now available in the latest version of the app.

Here's how it works.

1. In AroundMe, find a location you want to go, like a 7-11 mini mart.

 2. Next, click “Route” and you'll be provided options for routing. One of them will be “Scout by Telenav”

3. Choose Scout and then you'll be taken into your web browser which will show you a route to your destination. Push “Drive.”

4. After pushing “Drive,” you're ready to go and will be provided with turn-by-turn, voice guided directions to 7-11 – without ever leaving the app.

So that's how to use Scout for Apps in AroundMe. Check it out and let us know what you think!
