Bite-size restaurant, movie, book reviews

Read and write quick reviews from your iPhone on local restaurants and bars, movies, books, wine, and more.

Yelp.com may be the place to go for writing and reading restaurant and business reviews online, but the iPhone clamors for a different model. Goodrec beautifully fills this void with a full-featured application that lets you search or browse among restaurants, bars, books, movies, wine, and local venues for short reviews. A color-coded key shows you the number of positive, mixed, and negative reviews alongside short-form reviews. You'll also be able to rate each product and write a bite-size review, adding photos you can snap directly from the application. If friends are also using Goodrec , you can filter for their recommendations only and skip that of the common rabble.

Goodrec is also attuned to what's nearby; especially handy if you're looking for dining and nightlife ideas in a new neighborhood. If you're not prepared to read up on everything, it's a good idea to narrow your search by cuisine type or nightlife scene before checking out the map. While Goodrec is enhanced by creating a profile and getting your friends involved in ratings, its appeal to shyer folks and information-seekers shouldn't be overlooked.
