Restaurant reviews, movies, local news, gas prices, weather, friends… WHERE has it all. With WHERE you are up to a local treat. Great travel companion and the most complete local search utility, WHERE helps you discover places and things and connect with people around you.
Pros & Cons:
- Awesome location based app; find businesses and places near you plus more
- Write reviews with WHEREreviews new feature
- No user interface brand recognition uniformity within the app
WHERE Android App bundles many of the location based app capabilities all in one place… and for FREE! Find gas prices, Yellow Pages information, news headlines, movie show times, ZipCar finder, traffic and offers.
WHERE Android App does bring a hint of social networking to the platform via the “Where Wall”, a form of message board to post comments in general or tied to specific features; such as commenting on a particular News Headline.
Since our initial review of WHERE Android App, there has been some additions and improvements to the app. Even some experimental like Weather Pulse, which is there link to social buzz aggregating what other people around the web are saying or tweeting about regarding weather near you. As I note it is experimental as the responses were not necessarily related to my location, but you can get the idea in this screenshot.

WHERE Android app is very useful for most mobile outing information gathering. What makes it most useful is that many capabilities are in a centralized place and populate at your request based on your current or user specified location.
Ease of Use:
WHERE Android app is simple and easy to use. Tapp a component and the locations with access to detailed information is presented to you versus you going to get it.
Depending on your personal needs, it could proof to be used often or on an as needed basis.
The user interface is rather all over the place… meaning there is no brand recognition uniformity within the app. At every section there is a different look and feel. More like a mashup of several apps, however we know now more focus is placed on functionality over design (read more in our interview with VP of Tech of WHERE).
