Very handy app

Easier to use and fewer clicks than Google maps. Use it all the time.

Needs more work on interface

Not many POI’s in my area of the US. But I’m hoping OSM catches on.

—You need a button to repeat the current search after you move the map window.

—You need hierarchical/combined searches. If I choose ‘Food’ then you present me with a list of tag choices that would fit under that heading, and I can select none, done, or all.

— I want to see all POI’s available and let me filter it down by drilling down into the tag hierarchy.

This app is a good start.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! We really appreciate it! Regarding your ideas:
- You can already repeat the current search by clicking on the orange collection name left of the search field at the bottom of the map screen.
- I can see the point about combined searches. This would also eliminate the "frustration" about not finding a certain restaurant not because it is not in OSM but because it has been tagged as a fast food place for example. But searches can become overly complex and there needs to be some heavy performance testing before launching this feature.
- To see all POIs in an area is on the list of planned features but the same "problems" apply. With currently around 150 collections the query to OSM would be too complex. But there are some ideas on the table how to solve this. Drill down is not planned yet but that could be possible. Adding new POIs and editing existing ones has the highest development priority at the moment.
I am always happy to hear your input and feedback, so feel free to email us at anytime!

Downloaded the app and instantly started searching for a clubs near me and literally nothing popped up. For reference, I live in the bay area, so that is pretty unbelievable that it found nothing near me. Literally nothing was popping up. I feel like i just got my data stolen for no reason😭😭😭

Developer Response ,

We are sorry for your experience, but maybe you did not understand the concept of AnyFinder fully. AnyFinder lets you search for Point of Interests in the OpenStreetMap (OSM) database and it will always search the part of the visible map. If a club is in OpenStreetMap and its location is within the visible part of the map, AnyFinder will find it. If it isn't, AnyFinder won't find it. If you want to add your favourite club to OSM, you can do that anytime and then it will also show up in the app.
