Recommend An App to Track Places I Want to Go

I'm a pizza freak and I love traveling to new pizza shops wherever I go. People always recommend pizza shops to me, and I say "I'll add it to the list." Well, I want an app that can be that list for me, as well as track where I've been. Anyone have any recommendations?

The most integrated solution is to create a group on your contacts called "Pizza", add each place as a contact in that group, and then add notes once you've gotten there.

Yes, you could go and rate them on Yelp and that sort of stuff, but only if you want to share your dreams.

How about the iWish app in the store? It's free.

[itunes.apple.com]

I haven't actually used it.

If it was me, I'd probably use Google Maps and make a list of placemarks...but it's also probably not the most efficient way to go.

I have a Reminder list with places I want to visit but it could just as easily be in Notes. I like the idea of Addressbook as it would also have phone numbers etc but I wouldn't want a lot of entries polluting my address book. I think this is a good idea for a new app!

This is a good class assignment - there must be 100s of ways to solve this problem. It would be interesting to compare them all once submitted.

A feature I'd want is a List and Forget list, geo-sensitive.

Even though I forgot long ago that I wanted to visit a place, when I was in the area (radius set in the app's prefs) a Reminder would pop up on my Watch telling me "Hey, didn't you want to visit Ye Olde Pizza Joynt for a slice, one day?"

Then tapping the display would have Maps give me directions, hours, and ETA, and let me call ahead if desired.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

There's an app for that...

Matchbook - Save and Remember Great Restaurants and Bars
[itunes.apple.com]

I have not tried it but a Google search for "ios app to track places you want to go" came up with it.

I've been messing with the iWish app today - its kind of what I'm looking for but not perfect.

My thoughts exactly.



It is what it is.
