UrbanSpoon Serves Up Wichita


Urban Spoon, the wildly popular iPhone app, has finally launched in Wichita. Let the rejoicing commence!

This app’s brilliance is found in its simplicity, doing one thing and doing it well. As the iPhone commercial says, it answers the age-old question “What are we doing for dinner tonight?” And it does a pretty decent job of offering up viable suggestions. Combine its functionality with a clean, fun interface and there’s little wonder why it’s one of the top 10 most popular apps.

But our favorite aspect of UrbanSpoon is that it’s powered by people. Is your favorite Thai restaurant not showing up? Go to UrbanSpoon.com and get it added. Is there a restaurant that keeps showing up in an incorrect category? Go to the website and make a suggestion. It’s truly community-driven.

We’re pumped that the time spent on our “where-are-we–going–to-lunch-today” conversations are about be cut in half – now we just have to make sure we don’t fill that time trying to master TapDefense.

What do you think about UrbanSpoon?

    I’m shaking up the location of our after-hours drinks as I post this. Yes, technology is grand.

    I am also tres stoked about Wichita’s UrbanSpoon. I had downloaded it for our trip to New York, and it was wildly fun and helpful to use.

    My only problem is getting the shake right. I feel like I’m seizing instead of shaking. Maybe I should keep both feet on the floor next time…

    Since I don’t cook, Josh is so excited that it finally works in Wichita. He gets really tired of the “give me three choices” game.
