How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

2.0 out of 5 stars doesn't work in a big city either April 16, 2011
I just fired this up from home in New York City.
The closest restauarants they list simply don't exist.
It misses many actually restaurants that are near by.

1.0 out of 5 stars WTF! What is this thing? Paid advertisements? June 1, 2012
Geez, i looked for breakfast places ijn my home town of Boston MA, just to see if my favorites were even listed. what i got was a bunch of pre-digested reviews, One place had three identical reviews, can you say cut and paste? no way could i get a real review, or a decent menu, the dollar $$ signs have no meaning compared to the actual cost, one place has nothing over $10 bucks but is listed as four $$$$!
McDonald's as a breakfast place is not what i consider a meaningful option. but they list every one within 20 miles of me. The other "restaurant" is a Gay sports bar, they DO NOT serve food! let alone breakfast. I looked up a specific restaurant and the directions were not even close. Of the others ones i noted have been gone for about 4 months, not only is the place closed there is an actual hole in the ground preparing for a new hotel. I would have been really perturbed if i had taken their suggestion and went there without knowing that.
Use Google and put in "Breakfast in Boston MA" and you get a better selection, better reviews, correct directions and even websites you can go to.
Use Yelp, i have used them a lot and rarely did i get a bad suggestion, Hey urbanspoon, connect with Yelp and get your stuff together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth using, but not by itself October 19, 2012
By Dan
Verified Purchase
I travel a fair amount for business and much as I hate the word, I have to admit I've turned into a foodie. This impacts my eating both at home and when on the road for work. Urbanspoon, Yelp and TripAdvisor are must-haves as a group, but none should be used individually. If a restaurant gets high marks on just one of the three, it's a judgment call. Two of the three is a safe bet and all three makes it a likely guarantee (although altogether too many low-end but frequently-visited places get oversampled and turn into "noise").

If you don't have Urbanspoon, then get it. It's a great app. You can find restaurants that are near you, searching by price, location, or the type of food.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only good for those in LARGE Cities December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
The App name is fitting.

If you live in New Jersey, don't bother. We have thousands of restaurants, and you won't see one of 'em here.
