We are very excited to announce the release of AnyFinder 2.0 - the universal Point of Interest (POI) Finder App that uses live OpenStreetMap data. AnyFinder 2.0 is a big update and a great step towards our goal to be the best OpenStreetMap POI viewer (and eventually editor) for any Point of Interest.
Here is a list of the most important changes:
- New database engine that greatly speeds up the user experience when using the app
- Full text search in collection titles and descriptions
- New tag engine allows us to add OpenStreetMap tags without having to update the app. New tags will automatically be downloaded on the first app start every day. As of today we support 63 OSM tags and 198 dedicated values.
- New collection list with all available collections from A-Z
- Many new collections will be published in the days and weeks to come.
AnyFinder allows you to find places near you or around a specific location. Currently AnyFinder 2.0 will find the following Points of Interest worldwide:
AdBlue Stations, Airports, Apartments, Attractions for Tourists, Bakeries, Bars, Beaches, Beacons, Beauty Salons, Beer Gardens, Benches, Bicycle Parking, Bicycle Rentals, Border Controls, Brothels, Butchers, CNG Stations, Cafés, Camp Sites, Car Dealers, Car Parking, Car Rentals, Car Repairs, Caravan Sites, Cash Points, Chalets, Charging Stations, Christmas Markets, Cinemas, Clinics, Clothes Stores, Communication Towers, Convenience Stores, Defibrillators, Dentists, Drinking Water, Fast Food, Fire Hydrants, Fire Stations, Furniture Stores, Greengrocers, Guest Houses, Hairdressers, Hardware Stores, Helipads, Hospitals, Hostels, Hotels, Ice Cream Places, Intermarché Gas Stations, Kindergartens, Kiosks, LPG Stations, Laundries, Marketplaces, Motels, Museums, Pet Shops, Petrol Stations, Pharmacies, Places of Worship, Playgrounds, Police Stations, Post Boxes, Public Bookcases, Pubs, Recycling Places, Restaurants, Sanitary Dump Stations, Schools, Seafood Stores, Sex Shops, Ship Wrecks, Soccer Fields, Strip Clubs, Supermarkets, Swimming Pools, Swinger Clubs, Taxi Stands, Theme Parks, Public Toilets, Tourist Informations, Underwater Rocks, Vegetarian Food, Vets, Viewpoints, Waste Baskets, Weather Shelters.
