Place Book

Place Book


Place Book allows you to save and organize locations. Feature include:

- Save 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.

- Uber and Lyft drivers have used this app to save then easily navigate to commonly visited parts of town.

- 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).

Notes:
- The app uses Google Maps and Google Places data when searching for places.
- 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.

Thank you!

Worked great until lollipop I'm a Lyft driver and it worked great for keeping track of my common destinations but after upgrading to Lollipop it no longer works. It crashes immediately.

I love it, but sadly..... I just updated to the latest IOS on my Galaxy Note 3 and it doesn't work now. I went to see the app and it says it's compatible with androids under 5.0. This is most unfortunate since I updated the IOS to 5.0. Hopefully Circuit breakers can update the app so 5.0 android users can use it. I would give 5 stars, and I still will. But I'd love to use it again.
