Apple's App store has hit 500 million downloads. But Google's Android Market still has the power to unleash innovative extras for your mobile (well, your T–Mobile G1). And we're particularly enamoured with the new nru (near you) app from lastminute.com.
The idea is simple – using the G1's GPS and compass, it gives you a top down radar of the are you're in, showing you the nearest boozer, where to get food and the best places to catch gigs and shows.
Thanks to the compass, the view will change as you turn, giving you new and different options. It's out now on Android Market, stashed away in the travel section. Excuse us, we're off to see if it can pick out out local watering hole.
