Seeking an app to find POI's near a place I am not at now

iOS & iPadOS

I have most of the navigation apps that are accessible, including Navigon and SeeingEye. And they are great for getting to a specific place. Or seeing what's around me once I'm there. What I also want to be able to do is pick an area I will be at later or another day and find places near it, so if I want to go for coffee, pick a resttaurant to meet someone at, etc. and want to plan ahead, I can check out that area and see what is there. I'm sure there is something simple I'm missing, but if anyone can tell me which app they use for this, and perhaps how to do it, I'd greatly appreciate it.

You can simulate and area using Blindsquare. You would just search for it and when it is found you can double tap on the simulate location button i think it is. Now when you do a search for POI's it will give you them from that area as opposed to the one you are at.
