Hungry for doughnuts? Let Doughbot guide you to the nearest shop.

Doughbot is a new app released this month for the iPhone and iPad that helps users quickly find the nearest doughnut shops in their vicinities.

"Never be lost without doughnuts again. Ever," the app's description reads.

Pulling information from users' smartphone GPS, Doughbot quickly finds the closest doughnut shops. Users can see the shops in a list, scroll through them or see them all on a map -- represented by big round sprinkled doughnut icons.

Tapping on a shop will show users helpful information, including phone numbers, directions and reviews for the shop. The information is pulled from Yelp. 

The app is very similar to Pizza Compass, an app released last year that pointed users to the nearest pizza restaurant.

Doughbot is available now in the Apple App Store for $0.99. An Android version of the app is expected to be released in late April.
