On many early iPhone commercials, they answered the famous "There's an app for that" tagline with their Urbanspoon application. Those coveting the new iPhone watched as users in the commercial gently shook their iPhone and were presented with a slot machine-like result on the screen that told them where they should eat and how much it would cost. The Urbanspoon is at 9 million downloads and counting, boasting a bustling website full of user restaurant reviews to back up results. Need a partner for a dinner date at your new Urbanspoon find?
