Find the Nearest Anything: Yelp
Despite being a little hit-or-miss in terms of accuracy—its data can get outdated quickly—Yelp still has the greatest volume of local information, with 39 million crowdsourced reviews and 50 million listings from 21 countries. The search function yields dozens of results, even for such narrow categories as “pizzerias,” while built-in images, menus, maps, and directions add to its practicality. yelp.com
Runs On: Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows Phone
T+L Tip: Yelp has begun adding health ratings to restaurant listings in certain cities. At press time, data was available for San Francisco and Louisville, with New York and Philadelphia coming soon.
