Urbanspoon Meets the iPhone – AppStore

Urbanspoon Urbanspoon is a website that provides information and reviews for restaurants. The restaurants are based on location. Well, they have taken this concept and created it into an application for the iPhone.

“We wanted to take advantage of the physicality of the iPhone, so we’re using the accelerometer,” said Urbanspoon co-founder Ethan Lowry. “So we’ve developed an application for the iPhone that’s part slot machine, part Magic 8-Ball.”

So far, the application includes restaurant information for 38 locations in the US and 3 in Canada. The best part is that it will be free. Check out the demo video below.

StreetFlow 0.9 – Update

StreetFlow I was looking at StreetFlow today and realized that there are a few features I didn’t notice when I did my first review of version 0.9. One of the features includes default images for some restaurants, if there has not already been an image submitted by a user. There are even different default images based on the type of restaurant. Also, when you tap on a comment, there is the option to add that person to your Friends List. Until I saw this feature I was always confused on how I added people to my Friends List, now I know! I’m not sure how I missed these features…I’m guessing the application didn’t update properly and when I restored my iPhone yesterday and installed it from scratch, they showed up. Either way, still one of my absolute favorite apps. StreetFlow is available through the AppTapp source.
