It knows where to find a five-star-rated steaming slice of pizza. It knows where the closest/cheapest gas is. It knows about the construction that is taking place nearby, and it knows how many miles it is to get to a cup of Starbucks coffee. It knows where it is. Is it Artificial Intelligence, or Science-Fiction?
The free application better known as “WHERE” (created by uLocate Communications) is the end-all location-aware App. for the iPhone. The comprehensive program deciphers in a couple of seconds exactly where on earth someone is; there is no word as to whether this works for the astronauts in space yet.
Once the “WHERE” App. finds a human being, a completely customizable list is formed showing the reader nearly everything that is going on in the area. The local weather, closest/cheapest gas, local traffic, and news are among the numerous subjects shown. Clicking on the gas screen loads a look at the cheapest gasoline prices that are nearby (for example: $2.70/regular Getty in 1.4 mi.) complete with the exact address of the pumps.
The highest recommended restaurants show up in detail, if they are in close proximity to where a traveler roams. Whether out of one’s element, or just being curious as to which is the closest movie theater, “WHERE” informs about everything, except the locale of underground poker games!
