Needs better data integration, viz. ICICI banks don't figure under bank/atm, but are identified in individual search Fairly accurate locations

A fab solution for travellers :D Awesome way to find where I am and like a zillion places of interest when I'm traveling. I love the fact that i dont have to stop walking to look at a map, which I'd have to do to look at google maps for instance :D it just guides you in real time and with it you can see the places in front of you through your camera (because it gives you directions to the places all on your camera's visual by adding little balloons next to buildings and streets). And it's really easy to use. Would recommend!
