Find the Nearest …Anything: Yelp

Click Factor: The most comprehensive of business-search sites is Yelp, which lists nearby restaurants, hotels, banks, etc., via your phone’s built-in GPS. Contributed by other users, each listing features an address, phone number, pictures, reviews, and a map with directions. Yelp now works in Canada and some European countries.

Drawback: As is the case with most crowd-sourced services, Yelp is riddled with errors—it’s only as good as its users, so make sure to flag anything you find that’s incorrect.

Runners-Up: Aloqa (app only), Poynt (app only), Where.com
