[prMac.com] Milton Keynes, United Kingdom - Emityme Solutions today is pleased to introduce UK ATM Locator for iOS, their new free Utility app that instantly finds the nearest ATM, anywhere in the United Kingdom. Finding a Cash machine while traveling can be problematic. Having finally located one, it is not uncommon to face a withdrawal charge of up to two pounds. UK ATM Locator lists every cash machine in the vicinity with the closest first and those imposing no charge at the top half of the list. The app includes in its database more than 66,000 bank and standalone cash machines.
Whether one is accustomed to using cash frequently or not at all while traveling, there will come an instance where one must rely on finding an ATM machine. It may be to make a cash purchase, offer as a gratuity, or loan to a friend. Finding a cash machine nearby is an inconvenience, but finding one that offers free withdrawals can be a challenge. UK ATM Locator provides an instant solution to both.
At launch in portrait mode the app asks if it may automatically enter the user's present location as the target of the search. Typically, the user will respond OK. Alternatively, an empty text field allows the entry of any postcode. Scrollable results appear immediately, with the closest locations listed first. Machines without withdrawal fees are given priority and occupy the top half of the list clearly marked, giving the user the opportunity to save on unnecessary charges. Each location on the list includes the following: exact distance from present location (or postcode entry), name of machine (name of bank or cash machine company), full street address including postcode, and the exact fee charged (where appropriate).
Tapping any listing (four to an iPhone screen) brings up a full screen, zoomable Google Street Map with a red pushpin marking the location. The attractively designed and simple to operate app functions perfectly from anywhere in the world, providing the distance to the nearest UK ATM correct to one-hundredth of a kilometer.
