Ever wanted to find a specific place, and get there?

Ever been somewhere and wished you could mark it, to find it later.

Ever wished you could do that, and for free?

Well get a map!

Or... use this app!

Alf (Alien location finder) is all about finding locations... but not aliens. Use it to find your car, or your tent, or a place that you know is nearby*.

Unlimited locations can be added, categorised into groups, and shared with friends. Alf will show you chosen locations on its scanner and lead you to them... as long as they're not Aliens.

So why does Alf stand for Alien Location Finder? Well, because it looks and sounds a little bit like the M314 tracker from the film Aliens.

This app does not rely on your phones data connection, but rather uses GPS and the compass and is therefore most helpful when you are out of network coverage. Ideal for remote locations.

Also available in other colours including Pink!

Please note that this app is Ad supported, but will never prompt you to rate it and no features are disabled.

No Aliens were harmed during the making of this app.

* Nearby locations can be pinpointed on a map but this does require a data connection.

Great app! Find locations using Aliens Scanner

This app is great fun! Enter locations either by typing the business name or address, or by selecting 'My Location' and the scanner will show you the direction in the style of the one used in the Alien films. You can even use the app to find places you're visiting, though you won't get directions, just a dot and a direction.
