To Download: This Pizza Compass App Really Understands Me


Finding pizza, if you have a smartphone, should be easy, right? But, unfortunately, it never is. First you have to Google "best pizza Union Square" (or wherever you happen to be) using your phone's tiny, fumbly keyboard. Then, you usually get sidetracked and end up sifting through about a million Yelp reviews, wondering what exactly that self-professed "foodie" commenter means when he calls a certain pizza place's Italian fennel sausage topping "overreaching."

(Pizza Compass)

But Pizza Compass — a new app for iOS, makes everything so much easier. (Hat tip to Laughing Squid for alerting me to its existence.) It is literally a compass that directs you to pizza. You just open the app and begin walking in the direction the spinning pizza slice points you to. (!) You can rotate the compass-slice to find the closest pizza spot in a different direction, swipe to find more options, and tap to get info about a particular restaurant.

You can download this, the most important app of all time, for 99 cents on the iTunes app store.
