Foursquare

 

For those who don't have the Garmin Foursquare feature and use your smart-phone for navigation. This may be a alternate method to find the best places to eat, drink, shop, or visit — in any city in the world. http://goo.gl/ESNMe

from my experience

Run, don't walk away from this app. Yelp and Urban Spoon are much better.

Not sure

Looking at Google play unless you have hands on for all of them.It is hard to determing the best one or that much difference between them.

My experience

My experience with both Yelp and Urban Spoon is the listings are more focused. While Yelp covers much more than eating places Urban Spoon is more narrowly tailored.

With Urban Spoon you can pick a cuisine and a price range and search for restaurants near your location or in a destination. Yelp is like many social sites, the reviews all need to be taken with a very large dose of salt as like Facebook anything goes.

Foursquare appears to be more of a gathering app as in where is a good place for the gang to get together or I wonder if any of my friends are close to this place.

In either instance, don't just stop at one or two mixed reviews, read several unless they trend toward the "stay away" postings. My rule of thumb is if the number of favorable is about equal to the bad, then the place is at best mediocre and it's a real toss-up. Those that trend to the favorable are worth checking out if that's what lights your fire at that particular time and bad reviews usually aren't too far wrong.

Various selections

After a little checking it appears to be some good apps out there with different features. http://goo.gl/VLZDJ9
