Google Releases Near Me Now Search For Android and iPhone Mobile

Google Rolls Out "Near Me Now" Search For Mobile Phones

The next time you drop in to a new city or just wander into a new part of town you're not familiar with, Google wants to make it easier to find your way. Even if you don't have Google Maps installed on your Android or iPhone handsets, you can find the nearest ATM, coffee shop, bar, or restaurant with a single web page.

By pointing your mobile web browser to Google.com and allowing Google to access your location, you can then tap into Near Me Now, Google's latest lab for mobile. I tested it last night while hunting for a place to grab a late-night bite with some friends and can tell you that it's easy to use and gave me lots of results even though it showed a message saying that my GPS signal was too weak (in gray writing under the "Explore right here" field). Near Me Now even lets you save locations as favorites to remember later.
