iTunes Claims SF Weekly Best of App Is Tops

Posted By on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 4:15 PM

Earlier this year, we decided to make it that much easier for readers and tourists to find the best restaurants, bars, and and coolest places to sip on lattes with one slick touch of their  iPhone. Turns out, we were onto something pretty damn cool -- iTunes selected our free iPhone app as one of the top five best travel apps of the year.

See look, here's proof:

Here's how the app works: If  you're looking for something nearby, the app will lead you to the

best spots that are closest to your location. You can sort by neighborhood and quickly

see, for example, the decent places to gran some grub nearby, chosen by seasoned professionals like ourselves at SF Weekly.

And once you have found the perfect spot, you can check in via Facebook.

Not too shabby for journalists, huh? But we'll leave it to the real tech experts to give you a review. Here's how Wired.com summed it up:

What Yelp would be if only the cool kids could post reviews. Provides quick access to phone numbers and addresses, with in-app calls and maps.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
