In a major update released today, local search app Where To? has added a number of new features, including the ability to sync favorites and settings via iCloud. With the iCloud synchronization, a favorited place in the app can be pulled up on multiple iOS devices. One of the other new features of Version 5.0 of the app is the option to save places later to find them. If you've found a great restaurant or a good car repair shop, you can save the location to pull up later. Another new feature should help out the hungry diner. Where To? now has more than 600,000 menus for restaurants and services in the United States, which should make picking out where you want to eat even that much easier. The place details page has also been redesigned in the new version. A toolbar on the bottom of the page allows users to now call the phone number, add the location to the address book, set as a favorite, and share with friends in family via email or social media like Facebook. Finally, the app now features support for more turn-by-turn direction apps, including iGo primo, VZ Navigator, and Gokivo. A preferred navigation app can also be selected in Where To? by long tapping the directions button. Where To? is designed for the iPhone and iPod touch but is compatible with the iPad. It can be downloaded in the App Store for $2.99. Another feature of the app, the Where To? 3-D mode that visualizes live places with the iPhone camera using augmented reality, has a 30-day free trial mode. After that, it is an in-app purchase of $0.99.
