Vicinity is the ultimate guide to your surroundings.

0/5 stars

Worthless, ended up deleting it. Waste of money!

Beofre coming here to write this short review I tried contacting them for help via the app and their website, but no one has contacted me. Apparently nothing exists in my city according to all of the category views. I can only see a handful of businesses in the "what's near me" section which is just a hodge podge of random listings.

Lack of listings, categories not working and showing anything, and the fact their support does not respond, means this app deserves the lowest rating possible. Thumbs down - NOT recommended.

3/5 stars

Not very good.

I don't think this is a good app. It works ok. But I was expecting more. When you say "where am I?" it gives you the latitude and longitude, but not an address. This app needs some work.

2/5 stars

Lacking content

Simple and easy interface, but evidently there isn't a single grocery store in all of the West Village and my two favorite coffee shops within a block of my apartment don't exist either. Boo - worthless.
