If you were to go back a few years the Near Me apps were very popular, and it made searching and locating the likes of banks, fuel stations, restaurants, coffee shops and stores offering certain services that much easier. However, when you use those apps these days they do seem to be lacking in certain areas, and also you might find some of them do not work as well when you are in other countries. It also depends on what sort of thing you are searching for.
A fine example of this was found when we wanted to look for establishments offering iPhone 6s screen replacement near me, something that these Near Me apps are just unable to do.
We know that this is a bit obvious, but not having had to run such a search because of being so careful in the past, it was nice to see just how easy it was to find someone that offered to fix our iPhone 6s screen.
All it takes is a quick search on Google with the search term iPhone 6s screen replacement near me and you will be met with a map of the area where you are and a few of the closest places offering the service you need.
Just say for arguments sake that you live in Kent, UK, then you will notice that Timpson will be one of the results showing up. Luckily there was one right near us in the local Tesco Store, and seeing as though we booked the phone in, we were able to do a big shop, grab a coffee and in that time our iPhone 6s was repaired and ready to take away.
There are still other ways in which to find a place to repair your phone, but come on, you just have to hand it to Google in making such tasks that much simpler.
