    Hi,

    I am looking for a GPS app that tells you what kind of place you are in. So instead of giving an address, the app should tell you something like 'You are at a restaurant' , or 'You are in a hospital', or 'You are at the movies', and so on. Is there such an app?

    You could use Google Maps/Places for this kind of info about places.
    But those kind of places are indoor places and therefore the phone's GPS information (your location) would be inaccurately.

    Thank you, Harry. The Google maps api does exactly what I need.
