Viewing the map in full screen, helps a lot in locating the right place quickly, and also in finding the right direction to reach to desired place. But I felt one major feature is missing, which is an option to search stores for a place manually. Using this Windows 8 fast food near me app, is easy. You can either select all the different brands together, and search for their nearby stores together, at one time; with a single mouse click. Or, search stores specifically to a single brand only.
In order to search for all the brands together, simply right click on the screen, and click on Brand Filter button in the flyout at the top, and simply click on the desired brands, once you do that, click on the Refresh button at the bottom left corner.
And to search for stores for a specific brand then click on Brands button present in flyout at the top, and simply click on one desired brand. Doing this opens that brands screen showing it’s information, website, contact number, and nearby stores of that brand only.
The app is made as usable as it can be, and provides two map views: Road view and Aerial View. You can switch to any one, by simply right clicking any where in the map, and click on the Map Style Button. Even though it doesn’t support the manual location search option, but even for the current location search, the results are pretty good. The more you zoom out the range of the search automatically increases, that is there’s no limit in the search range. Which is quite a good thing. Simply use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out, and click drag to pan. Your location in the map is shown with a red blinking circle.
