This app is perfect for letting your fingers do the walking. It offers you the option to search for businesses or events in your area by finding your location using the iPhone’s GPS. You can also find both in other areas by typing in a new city or state in the search box. Sort your results by distance or more popular by touching the tab at the top of the screen. There’s also a tab labeled “sponsored,” which I assume gives you the links that are subsidized by the companies listed.
Once you have the business or event you were looking for up on the screen, you can either save it to favorites or add it to an upcoming plans list by touching the plus sign on the bottom of the screen. Or, you can email it to yourself or a friend by touching the envelope icon.
My favorite thing about this app is the “my plans” section. It’s an easy way to figure out your schedule and save it so you can copy it to your datebook or PDA at a later time. The events listing are also pretty cool. It features sports, concerts, book signings, museum exhibits and even happenings at local health clubs. It’s a lot more convenient than searching randomly online and more portable than the local paper.
I would recommend this app to anyone who is searching for places to go or things to do in their local area. And it’s also good if you need to look for say a plumber or a Chinese restaurant.
