Wikipedia with your location and presents you with relevant articles about places around you. For users living in or traveling to the United States, we have added the popular yellow pages service, Citysearch.
The Wikipedia source helps you find interesting and relevant information that matters to you. Wikipedia, the worlds largest encyclopedia, is a remarkable source of information on countless number of places written and maintained by volunteers from all over the world. Over 1.3 million pages are tagged with geo data. They mesh this data with your location and present to you a localized encyclopedia with relevant articles about places around you. If you thought there is not much to know about your area, try discovering it through the Wikipedia lens in Localscope, you will be pleasantly surprised to know of the cultural, historical and factual information about it that you were yet to uncover.
Citysearch is a popular online yellow pages service that covers more that 75,000 locations across the United States. Citysearch uses the database provided by Citygrid that lists local businesses, services, restaurants, hospitals and more. It also aggregates information from other online business listing websites. Besides the listings, Citysearch provides editorial recommendations along with local user comments and ratings for businesses in popular categories like restaurants, nightlife, hotels and services. Integration with Citysearch gives Localscope users living or traveling to the United States another choice to find and discover new places around them.
The new and updated version of Localscope is now globally available on the Apple AppStore, for US$1.99 (or the equivalent in other currencies). Visit the AppStore to get your copy now.
