Urbanspoon shakes up your lunch routine

I recently came across a cool iPhone app from Urbanspoon – it’s the magic 8-ball for meals. Whether you have a group that can’t make a decision or your stomach is growling louder than you can think, the app spits out a restaurant suggestion when you give it a shake. Are you one of those people who can never accept the first suggestion? Shake it again, and then suck it up because your friends are hungry.

The iPhone’s accelerometers pick up when you’re giving your phone a hopeful shake, it figures out where you’re located via GPS, and then it picks its suggestions based on the top-rated restaurants in your location on Urbanspoon (because their site also features restaurant reviews in cities across the US and Canada, and is breaking into the UK and Australia as well).
