Place Book


Place Book allows you to save and organize locations.

Features:

- Store places on your Android device then link to Google Navigation (or Waze, etc) for turn-by-turn directions.

- Search for and save a place, such as a restaurant or business. Place Book will try to find links to Yelp, Foursquare, and Google+ for reviews, tips, check-ins, street view, etc.

- Allows you to create your own custom lists (ex: "Restaurants", "Things to do in my city", etc).

- Add your own custom places by holding your finger down on the map for a couple seconds.

- Optionally backup your places to our secure servers then copy those places to any device with Place Book installed whenever you need them again (simple registration required).

- Upgrade to an ad-free experience for only $1.50 USD (per device).

Notes:
- You can turn off Yelp and/or Foursquare access in the Menu -> Preferences screen. This may be especially useful to an international audience where Yelp or Foursquare is not present.
- If you want to link to a different Navigation app than Google Navigation (example: Waze), go to Menu -> Preferences -> Direction Options.
- If you have issues with the app, please email me or go to my website and let me know. I will try to fix it as soon as possible. I want this to be your primary "navigation book". I am also logging feedback for potential feature upgrades, too.

Thank you!

Can't use map (or current location) to create a place! Warning: The upgrade only applies to the CURRENT DEVICE!!! Other than that in general looks pretty good.

Excellent This is the best ever! I use it every time I need to go somewhere where I don't know the area well. A moron could use it! ! Thanks to whoever the people are who shared this application with me.

Couldn't find restaurant by address, even though yelp had it. Entered address, and couldn't find restaurant name. Nice idea for an app though. Would love it if it had a place to add photo, description, or reason why I wanted to try a restaurant.
