Ratings and Reviews
Won't let you try it out without signing up
The concept is nice enough although I think there are plenty of apps available to help you get more information about local places. But it won't let you try it out without first signing in with your facebook info. I do not agree with this concept. I don't want to give up a lot of personal information just to try an app out and see if I'll like it. Should allow a bit more of a "try before you buy" feel. This app doesn't give enough benefit for me to give up my facebook info. Add a feature so I can sort of test drive the app first and I'll revise the raiting. Otherwise not really useful to me - I'd like to try this app out to see if it actually gives any info about locations around me (I'm in a rural area so I doubt it) but I won't give my facebook login to just anyone.
You can search for things like banks, restaurants, and so on in the app. And you need to log into your Facebook account to be able to use it. Maybe I didn't get it.. But for me, the idea is not quite attractive. There are many other apps to find information around me, without linking to my Facebook.
This app has some great potential. It is like Yelp in that it helps one to find places nearby but it includes deals from those places, reviews from friends on Facebook, and ratings on the app itself. It still needs a network of people to work but it's a great start.
