Urbanspoon - Five free iPhone apps

Developed by Wanderspot LLC

Urbanspoon transforms the iPhone into a kind of digital-age Zagat guide. The free application relies on GPS to locate restaurants in the user's vicinity, offering comprehensive business listings, ratings and reviews from newspapers, bloggers and fellow diners while filtering results according to neighborhood, cuisine or price. But what's really cool about Urbanspoon--currently available in most major metropolitan North American cities and London--is that it capitalizes on the iPhone 3G's built-in accelerometer: Shake up your device, and the app's 'slot machine' feature will identify a recommended restaurant you should try. (And you can keep shaking until you get the results you want--it's like a Magic 8-Ball that way.)
