Here and now
Check local listings and weather
Here and now Review
by on December 10, 2010
This app has been created by Nokia and offers easy-to-use web services related to your current location as determined by the GPS chip in your mobile phone. You’re able to check the weather where you are at a glance as well as get other local information such as movie times or details of local restaurants.
It’s not just restricted to your current location though, you can search for information on anywhere you choose. You can also get information on local events too and we were pleasantly surprised at the accuracy of this information – a local market was listed, for example, as well as several good local restaurants.
We clicked on the name of a local museum and we were given a description as well as basic contact information. We expect you’d be able to phone from the app, but the phone information didn’t show properly. You are, however, able to click the map icon on any local location to be taken directly to the Nokia map app. This all works exceedingly well as is how local information should be presented. What’s more, it’s far more comprehensive and effective than if you just searched in Google.
