Remember when you used to need a map or city guide in order to find what was best when you visited family or friends, or just moved to a new place? That’s so old school. The free SPUN app makes this all a thing of the past thanks to its geo-targeted “what’s happening” app.
SPUN uses a cool 3D interface that I find nice to use for navigating between its application panes. It currently delivers personalized news and cultural information for eleven cities in the USA, including New York, Boston, Philly, DC, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Portland, and Seattle.
Employing hundreds of media sources, the app aggregates results on dining, culture, lifestyle, news, entertainment and events, along with mapping of their locations. The app is designed to curate the best local content from a variety of leading digital publications. It can even remind you when events you like are coming up so that you’ll never miss them, and you can save favorite destinations so you can be alerted when you’re nearby.
You can get SPUN for free from iTunes.
