    "Good app that has features other GPS lack, such as advising not only about traffic jams and alternate routes but also if police are in the area. Quickly and safely navigates around construction jams and other annoying traffic tie-ups."

    "This app seems like a decent idea, like there's some fun value to be had. How many times have you been on a night about the town, or maybe at a big concert, and trying to link up with your friends so they can join the fun? This lets you track in on them and join that fun. But the app's pretty creepy, and that's turning me off. It starts running ads based on where we are. It's sending me emails for bars and restaurants I've been near. Worse, it's sending my *friends* those same ads. Your buddy was at Chili's last night, want a two for one coupon? Creepy."

    "Scout - GPS Navigation & Maps is an excellent turn-by-turn navigation app for iPhone. I found it to be a comprehensive solution as it hasn't failed me yet. I haven't tried it overseas but it has been quite useful for mobile navigation nationwide. The city maps are easy to understand and it makes navigation a breeze, overall. I use it every time I travel now!"

    "I have been using Citymapper to help me find public transit locations and times. It has been very accurate until the last 3 weeks, I am not sure what happened but now the timing is off, so I miss it, or have even been dropped off at the wrong location. I am not sure what happened with the last update, but I can't give a solid review until these issues are fixed"

    With Neongeo you can search geocaches on the go. It features map serves, geocache listings and offline support.

    "Depending on what you are looking for, Neongeo could be a great app. If you have heard of geocaches and enjoy doing them or are interested in getting started, Neongeo would be a great choice! You can log geocaches and trackables or keep fieldnotes in the app. It also has full offline support to help battery life. However if you are looking for a turn by turn navigation app to search for a destination and get directions there, you may be better off with Google Maps."
