    Another app coming from the iPhone, Urbanspoon finds you location and randomly chooses a restaurant for you when you want to go out!


    [​IMG] Presentation- Urbanspoon is a nice looking app, with some cool animations. This is probably why it is currently only for the Droid and N1. Its smooth and works really well, and is actually just a cool app to show off, and its helpful when searching for a place to eat!

    [​IMG] Usability- Ok this app really ticked me off when i first got it. I had GPS on and it took about 45 seconds to find my location before i could do anything. It took me opening it about three times to figure this out, and during this time you cant do anything else like access a menu or back out to the actual app interface. When it finds your location it then gives you the option to simply pick a city or your location. Barring this major misunderstanding the app works great, looks great, and is easy to use. I especially like the shake to spin feature!


    [​IMG] Usefulness- Cant figure out what you want to eat, or just want to be spontaneous? This is the app for you, and it is extremely useful, with the ability to automatically find many restaurants in your location.

    [​IMG] Value-Its free! The value is great and it is great for what a great app it is.

    [​IMG] Overall- This app is great in my eyes. Not only does it show off the ability to match the iPhone's app capabilities, it is actually a useful app! and its free! Enjoy it guys!

    The latest update for urbanspoon says, "Camera support." What does that mean? I don't see any camera feature like the periscope augmented reality part that the iphone has.
