The best part of Bar Findr Touch – which, as the name suggests, finds nearby bars – is the level to which user reviews give information about each establishment.

There’s no shortage of information to be found in this app, making its 99-cent price tag a great deal. Using an iPhone or iPod Touch’s Internet connection, the Lifestyle category app finds bars close to your location.

Not just a few bars – but pages and pages of them. The app maps the distance of surrounding bars and will give you directions to find them or a phone number to call. It also is possible to search for bars by name and category as well.

But the best part of the app is the ability to review bars and read reviews by other users. Bar Findr Touch allows you to add listings for bars in your area, which its developers verify and incorporate into the program.

Reviews are easy and extensive. They include all kinds of information – such as what’s featured at the bar in the way of entertainment, how pricey it is and what the atmosphere is like. If a bar is more “chill” than “mosh pit,” touch the slider on the review and drag it toward the Chill side of the spectrum. If the demographic is older rather than younger, drag the slider toward the “Chicken” side of the spectrum as opposed to the “Egg.”
