Editors' Review

Curious diners have a new friend in Urbanspoon, a practical dining discovery app that shows a playful side when you let it. Otherwise, it gets to the serious business of finding you food. GPS or various forms of manual input shine a light on the restaurants nearby. While there's also browsing by popularity or neighborhood or searching by name, the most interesting and invigorating feature is the slot machine on the main screen. Enthusiastically shake the iPhone (or press "shake") to set individual wheels in motion. They'll randomly land on a nearby neighborhood, cuisine, and price range. Padlocks just below each column let you secure a requirement--shaking again honors your assigned constants and spins the other variables.

Maps, click-to-call, critic reviews, and Urbanspoon-user ratings are available for each selection. We can't stress how nice the internal browser is for reading reviews and directions without needing to restart the app, though on some occasions they were extremely slow to load. We'd also like to see links to restaurant Web sites, while Urbanspoon is at it.
