Foursquare personalizes your experience for you by asking your preferences and setting filters. Find restaurants by location. Read reviews and see pictures of the food. A plus about FourSquare is that often if the place does not have free Wifi, users who have obtained the password usually give it to you. Foursquare provides you with personalized results, filtering out one’s you don’t want.
UrbanDaddy is truly engaging as it asks you multiple questions to find out your mood and what you feel for. After, the app finds selections that match your criteria based on ambiance, food, and company. It is truly easy to use and has a sexy feel. It provides you with names of restaurants as well as their contact info, menus and reservation options. This app is cool because it doesn’t have basic questions, but rather a suggestive tone to it.
