The inspiration for Apple's own "Near Me" feature debuted in the App Store in iOS 7, you can own this unique piece of App Store app history. Our GUI was even “flat” before flat was in!
Touch a value for a description
This app was developed for iOS 4.3 and is still supported on iOS 8 today (thanks to backwards compatibility) but needs to be updated internally to use the latest APIs and code practices. If you don’t know what this means, please consult with an iOS Developer or two. We haven't updated the app in a couple of years because Apple rejected a bunch of our competitors' updates in late 2012, and our app was pretty stable at the time without the pressing need for patches or bug-fixes. We did push out a small update in July 2013. Nowadays, there are other more recent app projects like Homescreen (http://homescreen.is) that offer alternative "app sharing" platforms, so I'm sure that something can be done with this idea/code/data if you're motivated and ambitious!
In its lifetime so far, App Map been downloaded about 50,000 times. In the last 3 months, about 1600 times. — It is powered by a single Digital Ocean "droplet" server that costs about $10/month. There is also an Amazon S3 account that costs around $3/month on average to store image metadata and other data. So, costs are almost always under about ~$20/month (USD) right now. The service produces very minimal revenue through App Store app download affiliate commissions.
The app was featured on a few tech blog publications in 2012, including TechCrunch and TheNextWeb:
