The design of Here n Now is really well thought out and is a breeze to use. The entire design looks clean and crisp, so that’s an added bonus. Here n Now uses Apple Maps to give you a location based view of where there might be an event or activity. The app automatically sorts between the different categories of traffic, shopping, warnings, and the weather. This way if you’re looking for a specific kind of alert, you can get it without having to go through all the other alerts. It’s also really easy to add alerts. You simply register with the app, and then you can add alerts with only a few taps. The overall design of the app is based on simplicity, and with Apple Maps support, the app looks promising.

Overall Value

Overall the app has a bunch of great features which create a powerful app. Here n Now also has a great design, and has a lot of potential to be a great tool for people. Hopefully more people start using the app and the user base should grow with time. I would recommend this if you want a variety of alerts in a simple and easy to use mobile format. In total, it’s a decent app and it’s free.
