    A co-worker has an iphone app that allows him to draw a line and it only shows the results for his search within a specified distance of the drawn line as opposed to in a radius from where you are as is default in google. Thus not giving you results that are behind you and don't really help. He said it is called Y! Sketch. I couldn't find that specific app in the Android market. Is this because I'm a search noob and just missed it? If that specific app is not made for Android, is there another similar app? Thanks.

    If you're using Google Maps Navigation and perform a search, it will search along your route instead of nearby. In my experience though, it does give you results that are behind you (but near). Also, I have no idea what criteria they use the define "along your route".
