While traveling this holiday season, you will enjoy the benefits of Near To Here, the excellent locator that knows exactly where you are, and what intriguing places are around. Near To Here uses reverse geolocation look-up technology. The cool part of this app is that as you pass by many landmarks, you will be alerted with a Wikipedia entry which will enable you to gain real insight in the area and its history. You can be alerted from within 100 m to 5,000 m of interesting landmarks. Remember to adjust this in the Settings as well as the type of Alarm sound you would like to hear when this information is presented to you. What I like about Near To Here is the fact that you don't have to go digging through a travel guide to find the spots of interest. As you pass through them, you are alerted and given the relevant information. This is such a unique and hassle-free way to learn more about the city you are touring. So stroll by the Trevi Fountain in Rome, or the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and anticipate your Near To Here alert letting you know all about these fabulous places you are visiting.

"A pocket tour guide that tells you everything you need to know about everything that is near to here,wherever you are worldwide!"
