Although Scout in Mango is a pretty awesome feature, not everyone will have access to the services as it is dependent on your country/region. On top of that, perhaps you just want an alternative, which is where From Here comes in. A free app by Armanovus, the program is a Mango-only app (sorry folks) that is exceptionally fast and well designed in terms of UI.

It's simple enough: launch it, it locates you and you have per-defined categories to look up things e.g. Coffee, Banks/ATM, Gas Stations, Hospital, Hotels, etc. In other words, it's great for those who travel. You can also search for anything (powered by Google, but uses Bing maps) and get turn-by-turn/step-by-step directions to your destination. Going further, you can even share the destination via Facebook, Twitter, SMS or email.

Like we said, the app is very fast, smooth and very well designed. Our only complaint is it's in kilometers with no miles option, otherwise it's pretty solid. It's free with no ads, so give it a go. Pick it up here in the Marketplace.
