    We're getting ready to release a new application for finding nearby businesses. It's free and we would love it if you would try it before we put it in the android market:

    Thanks!

    I downloaded Local, and tried it out.

    Seems nice, clean UI. However, seems to lack the ability to find where I am using GPS?

    It should easily allow the user to simply tap "Find Me", or "My location", and use the built in GPS to locate where the user currently is, rather then require them to enter location.

    Also, perhaps store previously entered locations?

    Otherwise, it is an excellent program to find restaurants and read reviews! Thanks!
    :)

    I think the app is pretty damn nice ... lookup for almost anything .. Food, grocery, hardware, bikes, etc... looks like it might use yellowbook in getting its info??? but is very good ... once you click a found item then you have full listing --- location, phone, directions, reviews(thumbnails and full) ... i liked that the directions let you select from your installed apps for directions .. like browser, maps, and my fav "1 click directions" ....

    The front-end input of "near" does not work with cell tower ... have not tried with GPS yet ... Also it would be nice if it would remember and let you select from previously entered locations ... there was a drop down of entry when you start to type a location ... but it was cut off and did not display the full previous entry ...so you have to retype/complete the entry all over again each time ...

    Tried Local, VERY good Yelp implementation! I use it all the time here in SF so this'll be great for that. When do u plan to release it? I also agree with the guy above about gps current location finding.

    Finally, craigsphone? Please?

    I like the app and the way that it brings up the yelp type interface, however when I do find something and press map it crashes .... any ideas why?
