If you want to test it on the Android Emulator on Android Studio, just drag & drop this apk into the Emulator and it will automatically install the app for test.
Please note that we couldn’t insert a store for any location in the world (it would take forever), so unless you’re from New York central area you won’t be able to see any store in the Home screen, you’ll be able to sign up and check news. Check the screenshots of this app to see more details.

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.
If you’re wondering about Parse shutting down, it’s only its hosting service on parse.com that will close, the SDK will keep working and that’s why we’ve hosted it on
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 and create a new Panel, choose self-hosted Parse server and paste your Host, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you cam find them into Core Settings of your back4app panel)
Users can submit their stores for review, you as the Admin of the app may daily enter your Parse Dashboard to check out and approve those stores by simply switching the field isPending to False.

We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
