Whether you are getting ready to travel or are just looking for a new spot in your area that has delicious food or energetic nightlife, Rekky can help. The app provides recommendations from “tastemakers” and friends so you always know the best spots in town. You can also check-in, make a list, and become a trendsetting tastemaker yourself.
Browse through the home page to check out locations by title or on a map. When you select one that interests you, you can view a few details, photos, and the tastemaker’s comment. Add it to your list so that when it’s time to hit the town, you know where to go.
If you love the Rekky lists that a certain user, friend, or tastemaker suggests, follow them so you can easily see new places they add. You can also subscribe to specific lists like locations in Toronto, Canada or New York, New York which makes it simple to keep up with new additions.
If you know the hottest spots in your own area and want to become a tastemaker yourself, you can check in with Foursquare, connect to Instagram, and add your Facebook account. Then create your own list of trendy locations for others to check out.
Rekky is a useful tool and if you live in or plan to visit a place like New York City, then getting recommendations on where to dine from a local chef like Camilla Becerra should certainly point you towards terrific restaurants. The app is a bit limited with most locations being in major cities, however, Rekky is still somewhat new so it’s understandable. But, if you decide to become a tastemaker yourself, then you can definitely help expand its reach, assist your friends in discovering great spots, and provide suggestions to those visiting your town.
Rekky is designed for iPhone and available for free on the App Store with no in-app purchases.
