Place Book: Organizing, searching, and managing saved places and locations

June 25, 2012

With the wide range of things that our Android devices are capable of doing, it is best to get things organized and to keep our tasks running smooth and easy. That’s why our devices have pre-installed applications that help us keep things organized such as the calendar, contacts, call logs, and many more.

Such apps are used to keep things neat and tidy on your Android device. In fact, one app allows you to keep information of places on your map.

The Place Book app is your portable organizer of locations on your Android device. This app lets you save information of places and keep them on your Android device. The app also integrates online services such as Yelp, Foursquare, and Google Places to keep all your saved locations in one neat location organizer.

Although the app’s main interface is not total eye candy, you can still enjoy all the features upon launching the app. You don’t have to sign up for a monthly subscription, create a user account, or explore complicated features. Just launch the app and have yourself a simple location organizer on your Android device. The app’s main interface is composed of three tabs: My Places, Map, and Search.

All your saved locations and lists are found on the My Places tab. Here you can view your saved locations. You can also organize your bookmarked locations by grouping them into lists.

You can make a list of your favorite restaurants in the neighborhood, or create a list of places you want to go to. Tapping a location reveals the information window about that place. Here you can check the address, contact number, location on the map, and its directions.

You can also activate the services of Yelp and Foursquare to view more information such as tips, star ratings, user reviews, and many more. You can activate or deactivate Yelp and Foursquare by going to Menu > Preferences.

The Map tab lets you view the map and view your saved location. You can also search for a new location on the map. All your bookmarked locations are marked with red placemarks whereas your search results are marked with yellow placemarks.

Get information of a new place by using this app. All you have to do is long tap the selected location and Place Book will do the rest. The app will show you the information of the selected place such as the address and contact information. If you don’t know the telephone number of your favorite coffee shop, just open the Place Book app and let it do its thing.

For manual searches, just tap the Search tab and type the location you want to look for. You can also customize the app’s navigation options, map type, zoom capacity, units for the distance, and enable online services on the Preferences section.

You can download the Place Book app for free from the Google Play Store. What are you waiting for? Use the Place Book app and make your Android device your location organizer.
