UrbanSpoon for Android

Editors' Review

Urbanspoon is a location-aware mobile app that helps the indecisive among us figure out where to eat. Open it up, and the Home screen presents you with a number of ways to receive restaurant recommendations or to simply search for a restaurant in your vicinity. You can Browse via category, see what's Nearby, or look at your Friends' profiles. There's also a built-in tool for booking reservations. If you're more into visual stimulation, the bottom of the Home screen displays a virtually endless slide show of photos from restaurants nearby. Swipe through them, find one you like, and tap through to the restaurant's page, which lists all the vital information, plus user reviews, links to restaurant Web sites, and critic reviews (when available). If you still can't find that perfect spot to dine, you can, of course, try Urbanspoon's most touted feature, its slot machine.

Shake, essentially a restaurant slot machine, is easily our favorite of Urbanspoon's features. Its three reels correspond to neighborhood, restaurant type, and price range. If you can't seem to find the right restaurant, just shake your device to send the reels spinning until they eventually land on your recommendation. Still not right? Shake it again, but this time try locking any of the reels to provide constraints for your slot-pull.

Overall, we think Urbanspoon is a perfect tool for discovering new restaurants in your area. Yelp may be a more comprehensive database of restaurant information and customer reviews, but it sure doesn't have a built-in slot machine. If your mainly trying to find an app that will cure your indecisiveness and point you in the direction of a potentially scrumptious bite to eat, Urbanspoon is exactly that.
