Roamz, the popular social networking app, has received a substantial update. Version 2.5 includes a number of new features that makes discovering cool things to do around you easier than ever before.

First released for iOS in September, the free app helps users find local places to visit. It does so by scanning postings on other social sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare.

With its latest version, Roamz now includes a discovery screen that allows you to search for things of interest to you. Meanwhile, the new starring feature lets you star a venue you find interesting, regardless of your present location. Then, the next time you are close to that place, Roamz will remind you to check it out.
