WHERE: An App For Finding Places To Go and Things To Do Near You

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

WHERE, recently updated to 4.1, is a geolocation app designed to help users find places to go to based on their current location, with the ability to list your favorite places. The 4.1 update adds in new features designed to bolster the social aspect of the app. You can now Bump phones with other users of WHERE to get shared recommendations for places to go with them, called 'Perfect Places'. As well, there's now expanded Facebook support, with the ability to find WHERE users among your Facebook friends, and to check in with Facebook Places using WHERE. As well, you can share your WHERE Lists with your WHERE friends and search within those lists and your friends lists as well. WHERE is currently available from the App Store for free, and promises unique content for attendees of SXSW in Austin, TX this March 11th-20th.

Seriously, if it's free and will help you be much cooler than you already are, how can you go wrong? For all you fun seekers and SXSW attenders, this one is a no brainer.
