iOS 6 and iPhone 5 Support

We are pleased to announce that near2there is now compatible with iOS 6. You can now fully enjoy all that near2there has to offer on your iPhone 5 with its wider display. Despite all of the reports on the quality of the maps and directions in iOS 6, we have decided to fully implement them in our latest release. We are confident that Apple will fix all of the issues that have been discovered. Linking directly to Apple's maps provides the smoothest user experience. Please let us know how you are using near2there. Contact us at customerservice (at) near2there (dot) com. Thank you, Peter Olfe CEO & Co-Founder

Introducing the near2there Placemarker!

Our goal at near2there is to make it easy for you to capture all the places you want to go to.

With our new near2there placemarker you can capture ANY location on the web and save it to your phone.

When you are going out near2there will give you a link back to the original web site and directions to the place.

How do I get it?
To get the near2there Placemarker simply go to our service page and drag and drop the "Install Placemarker" button to your browser bar. (Internet Explorer users: right-click the button below and choose "Add to Favorites...".)

How do I use it?
Highlight all the address information.
Click on “Placemarker” in your browser.
You’ll get a pop up screen where you can fill in other details.
Then simply click “add.”
This saves the location to your near2there account both online and to your phone.
