Oink – iOS app review



Published: November 4, 2011
Link: iTunes
Cost: Free

Update March 14, 2012: Oink will be shutting down soon.

Oink aims to fill a gap in the location-based review services where, instead of rating places, you rate the things inside those place, so you always get the best experience.

Whether you’re looking for the best burger on that restaurant’s menu, or the best roller coaster at Six Flags, Oink will find it for you. Oink is a community-driven review service in which reviewers—called “Builders”—can rate the things inside any restaurant or other attraction, so you end up getting the best that place has to offer.

You can search by category—e.g. “breakfast” or “sushi”—or just head to a nearby restaurant and see what the top menu items are. If you like it, you can rank it yourself in Oink, thus contributing to the app’s accuracy for others. It’s a very clever approach to location-based review services, even if—like the rest of them—it requires people to use it before it becomes useful.
