    I just downloaded AroundMe app for iOS and it has way more in terms of categories of places compared to Local Scout. WP team better add a lot more to this hub if they want it compelling versus other platforms.

    I agree. I wish I could narrow categories down better in local scout.

    I'd like to go to a new city and find all the electronics stores, for example.

    That's an app tho, on WP you don't need an app for that. It's also pretty much a done deal that it'll be improved in WP8. I've had no issues with it so far.

    It doesn't matter if it's built into WP if an app does it better. Local scout has been fine for me, but I don't travel much. I'm also confident Microsoft will improve it for WP8.

    Doesn't do that to me, you can adjust and filter what it searches for.

    The top 20 results for any given category or filtered option. Who would want to have to search through 500 results just to find somewhere to eat? I know I don't.

    So you want to compare a third party app to Local Scout and then put the pressure on the WP team? Seems to me that the ios team aren't doing the job either if it took an app to get you what you liked.

    Oh guess what? I just searched and AroundMe is available for WP in free and paid versions. Case closed.
