Once upon a time, back when Yahoo! Was the go-to search engine, MapQuest was the mapping service. You may have forgotten the name, but you should know about the app. Before Apple brough free turn-by-turn directions to the iPhone, MapQuest’s iOS app already did that and more.

In addition to driving directions, the app also gives walking directions. A side-scrolling menu on the bottom offers 17 categories including “Bars,” “Gas,” “Coffee,” “Dinning,” and “Banks.” Click on, and all the corresponding businesses near your location will pop up on the map. If you don’t mind having an ad at the top of the screen, this app is gold.
