AroundMe uses the iPhone 3G's Global Positioning System (GPS) capability to find your location. You can then choose the nearest bank, bar, gas station, hospital, hotel, movie theater, restaurant, supermarket, theater or taxi.
The listing is displayed on a map, which then plots the route. You can add that information to your contact list or e-mail it to others. AroundMe also incorporates a "Nearby" listing, and will link to Wikipedia so you can discover information about a chosen locale.
