StoresAround is a Universal App Template where you can let people see and submit stores nearby, it has Localization service, search by Category and up to 100 Km nearby.
It has a News section that you can edit on your Parse Dashboard, as well as inserting/editing the Stores details and images.

Since its backend is by Parse Server, you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO PHP files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for server side.

You may also use the Adminca Panel as a great alternative to insert/edit data in your Parse Dashboard, after you’ll create your app on back4app, create a free account on http://adminca.com and create a new Panel, choose self-hosted Parse server and paste your Host, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you can find them in Core Settings of your back4app panel)


StoresAround is a native XCode project, Swift language, Storyboard, Universal, super easy to customize, backend with Parse SDK hosted on http://back4app.com.

I get a Code signing error in Xcode 8.x

That’s a bug of Xcode 8 with macOS Sierra, check this sample video to see how to fix it: https://youtu.be/z2LemT1_LqA

How to remove AdMob banner ads

Check this video out to see how to remove the code that shows AdMob banners: https://youtu.be/e-HQYnta2Jg Keep in mind that you must repeat the shown steps for every .swift file that contains this line on the top:
import GoogleMobileAds

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

Should I use the latest version of Xcode to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE.
