Yahoo’s Sketch-a-Search iPhone App

Posted on 26 March 2010

There are certain apps that simply make your life easier, providing you the right solution at the right time. And what is more important than fulfilling the basic human instinct of hunger.

Yahoo’s new Sketch-a-Search engine is just the application you need to find out about the nearest, and the coolest restaurant whenever you want. The app, which was released just recently is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Basically, Sketch-a-Search is a location-based dining guide. Once you turn it on, a Google map appears showing your immediate surroundings. Now comes the fun part. The app allows you to use your finger to draw on the iPhone, indicating the area around which you want to find the restaurant.

Use your finger to draw a big circle on the Google map, and press the search button. Instantly, the app scoops out the closet results, with ratings and photos of the closest places around.

However, Sketch-a-Search does need a little more improvement as it can be noticed that the app is lacking a little in the results area.

Thus just with the addition of a few more places in the search results, some added photos and reviews of restaurants across the US, the Sketch-a-Search app can become the hottest app in town.
