When I was in Beijing not too long ago, I found myself searching google for things to do in Beijing and, no surprise... I found several restaurants and attractions recommended on blogs and travel sites.
Now, armed with my laptop I walked like an idiot to the concierge trying to figure out where on a paper map these places were and how to get there. It was a huge ordeal and well, in the two months I was there (on business) I didn't visit much because of the pain it was to organize everything.
After I got back, my friends and I decided to see if we could make an app that would make this whole process easier.
We created an app that extract places mentioned on any web page, then finds it on a map and fills in the missing information (opening hours, transit and reviews info). It then syncs it to your iPhone.
You can also use it collect places you don't want to forget about and Dcovery
organizes it in city guides for you.

We built this to scratch an itch we have. I wonder what you guys think about it and if it'd be something you'd use too. I can't think of a better place than FT to get feedback on this. Thanks guys
