800yards™ finds businesses and points of interest within a radius of 800 yards (or more if you want) of wherever you are.In contrast to other local search apps, 800yards allows you to select multiple search categories and display the results in one go – e.g. restaurants and bars and parking and gas stations. All matches close to your current location will show up in the result list and are marked on a map.800yards is also uncommonly easy to use. Simply add search categories to your active list or remove them, and 800yards keeps you posted on matches as you move about. Results are stripped down, providing just enough information to allow you to make quick decisions at a glance – there is no clutter of “enhancements” that are difficult to use on the fly. Battery disclaimer: 800yards uses the Location Background Mode, which may cause a higher battery consumption. You may easily switch this off by disabling the GPS Notifications in the settings view or optimize the parameters within the settings of 800yards.800yards is currently available for the United States and the UK, accessing 25 million listings and nearly 2 million listings respectively. It runs as a universal app on iPhones 4S, 5, 5S, 6 and 6 plus, as well as on iPad 2, Mini 2 and 3, Air and Air 2. It requires iOS 8.1 or higher.
