How many times we get stuck in a new place and call our friends to get directions to pubs, restaurants nearby and still be in an endless search.
Localguide puts an end to all this endless searches.

* LocalGuide takes two short keywords and directs you to the place you want to go with detailed map directions.
* It provides you the complete addresses, phone numbers, maps location. It identifies your location using GPS or Wifi.
* Make a call instantly.
* Send SMS/message the result to your friends right away.
* Update twitter,facebook status with the result informing (where you are presently ).
* Get directions to the place with neat and simple step by step instructions with clear paths shown using google map view.
* Bookmark your favourite Places and store them for fast consultation when in offline usage

A LITTLE ANIMATIONS are added during screen transitions.

Home Screen Widgets:

Localguide provides one of the interesting additional features is home screen widgets which has

* Support for 4x1 and 4x2 resolutions. Please see the previews.
* Provides instant results of your interested categories around your current location in home screen.
* Widgets has the capability to keep listening for your movement and detects the location automatically and refreshes the results.
