Google has announced a new feature entitled “Near me now”. This new feature allows Android (2.0.1 and later) and iPhone users to search for results based on their GPS location. Google Mobile’s blog says the “Near me now” feature was designed to address two problems:
First, we wanted to make it fast and easy to find out more about a place in your immediate vicinity, whether you’re standing right in front of a business or if it’s just a short walk away.
Second, we wanted to make searching for popular categories of nearby places really simple.
