It also works as a village finder, slime finder, ocean monument finder and other things finder. There is a Minecraft console command that will automatically give you the coordinates of the nearest village. You can hover or click to get the biome name displayed on the info panel. You can create a new world that spawns you next to a village, or you can try to locate a village based on geography.
On the other hand, the app doesn't miss any villages. Even though you are running Minecraft 1.8 your terrain might have been generated in a previous version if you have an old world. Large biome setting is not yet supported!
For Console Edition, the app isn't perfectly accurate either. Keep in mind that locating a village in a standard world will take lots of time and patience.
