Get the lowdown on what’s happening around you
by on July 25, 2010
If you’re a social climber, or perhaps just lazy and uninterested in your surroundings, then finding out the best and hottest hotspots around your is a must.
That’s where Qype comes in – listing all the local attractions, restaurants and amenities in your vicinity.
It’s a well laid out application, with all the listings arranged in an easy to hit menu. Finding your location is the first thing the phone does, the quickly searches and populates the categories.
Finding your location is a little annoying though – you’re likely to use this app mostly indoors to decide what to do of an evening, and then it defaults to aGPS – this means your location is often quite far from where you actually are.
However, it’s fine over GPS, and you can choose between Google Maps and the official BlackBerry mapping application to see the results.
User reviews could be a little more plentiful, but this is still a decent app to help your social life.
