    Google Places Directory app worked fine until today...I'm getting an error "Unable to connect to server. Click to retry" I uninstalled, and reinstalled the app, and am still having problems. My husband has a Moment, and is getting the same message too.

    Same thing here. I'm traveling, and it's killing me - I just figured out how cool it was, and now..

    It's happening on both my Evo and my Hero.

    I had the same issues while on the road yesterday too. Uninstalled and reinstalled and still get the same message about server problems. Great app when it was working.
    Is there anything out there that's similar?

    Same problem here. I assume it's the main server at Google.

    I just found another app that's similar. It's "Where". I don't like it as much as Places, but I'll use it until the Google servers for Places starts working again. I went to the reviews for Places and there were a bunch just recently posted last night about the app not working.
