There's an App for That: BlackBook for the iPhone

Now that Steve Jobs has finally unveiled the iPad (aka The Tablet That Launched a Million Tampon Jokes) and the world can collectively breathe again, it’s time to focus on more serious matters. No, I’m not talking about health care or the economy. I refer of course to the never-ending search to find the world’s best bars and restaurants.

Since 1996, BlackBook Magazine and City Guides have offered the best in restaurants, nightlife, travel, fashion, entertainment, and the arts. In print and online, BlackBook covers modern popular culture with sophistication and style.

With the BlackBook Guides iPhone App, readers on the go can get the lowdown on over 50 cities around the world. From velvet ropes to dive bars, mobile users can get all of their location-based BlackBook info for free. Even better, you can use the guides to get BlackBook Access at special BlackBook-curated venues around town, featuring free drinks, discounts, and line-skipping tips.

Just a few of the local BlackBook Perks include:

  • Stone Rose Lounge: 30% off
  • Whiskey Blue at the W Hotel: 30% off
  • The Standard: Free appetizer with the order of an entrée at The 24/7 Restaurant.

Foursquare Integration

Hooked on foursquare? Now you can check-in directly from the BlackBook app. The foursquare integration is seamless; just look for the “Check in to Foursquare” button at the top of any venue listing.

So, not only will you get the inside info on that red-hot restaurant everyone is trying to get into, you can let everyone know you’re The Mayor, too.

Mashable likes what it sees, naming BlackBook one of the 10 Foursquare Apps You Can Use Right Now.

    Very cool. Big fan of Stone Rose…. and my iPhone. This all just makes sense to me.
