If you like Yelp, but you're after much more granular information on food and drink, then Spork is just what you need to fulfill your craving. This iPhone app (and its companion Web site) lets you simply enter any food or drink item and then populates a list of options nearby, most of them with ratings and comments by other Spork users. In this way, you can determine the best spot for al pastor tacos, cupcakes, dirty martinis, and just about any other tasty treat you're after. In addition, you can rate and recommend dishes yourself as well as add them to a "to do" list, which you tick off as you ingest. You also have the option to connect to fellow users to get more-personalized recommendations, and suggest particular items to friends.
As of this writing, the app is in beta, so it still needs a bit of polishing. Still, Spork is extremely user-friendly with a nice interface that's heavy on images of yummy-looking food. The developers have also done a nice job with the graphics that call out ratings. Even in beta, this is a must-have app for any foodie.
