The best location app, period!

:
Localscope is a truly impressive location and navigation app. Since, on a basic level, all location apps largely do the same thing, I want to focus on the little nuances that set this app apart from other location apps. The user interface is slick, beautiful to look at, and easy to use. There are a number of preset searches, but you also have the ability to remove these or add your own favorites. The little clicks and ticks sound effects fit the app perfectly as you switch search engines and make selections. The little compass beside each found location is very helpful for the visually minded, like myself. Also the ability to share search results with friends (via text, email, social network, etc.) or add contact information straight to your address book are really nice features.

Prior to this version update, the phone's magnetic interference warning would pop up often. I emailed the developer and they responded within minutes explaining they were planning to add a warning message suppression feature to resolve the issue. Surely enough, the update to the app came within the week. Great work!

For those reviews that criticize the app for finding the wrong current location, I say you can hardly blame the developer for poor gps signal. The app itself can only do so much with bad cell phone reception.

The attention to detail that went into this app is stunning. Even the app's icon is pleasant to look at. I highly recommend it. Looks great on my phone's home screen. Way to go Cynapse! 5 Stars!

Very impressive

:
Fast, elegant, versatile - this is truly an innovative app. I hope future updates will sync with MapQuest. Also, I'd love to be able to drill down further into locations. Give me a link to a restaurant's webpage, their menu, happy hour. Let me compare gas prices in list view. This app has the potential to blow 'around me' and 'where' out of the water. Its like a racecar on a go-cart track. But currently it's lacking some of the features that make those other apps worth keeping around.
***
also, allow streetview in map mode. Its too cool to leave out. Additionally, there needs to be a way back to the app once you've gone to maps. It's a hassle to switch back and forth
