The name of this app is Close By Places. This app allows users to save their favorite restaurants or stores in the app and allows them to find the closest location quickly and easily. The user types the names of their favorite places to be saved in the app. When the user wants to find the closest location of one of their favorite places, they select it. Then the app presents a map view that zooms in to show the user’s location and the closest location of the selected place. The map view also allows users to zoom out to see other nearby locations. The user can tap a button which will open Apple Maps to get directions for the selected location. This app is available for download on the iOS App Store.
