Best apps: For finding new places to eat

Eat St., LocalEats, Foodspotting

Eat St. focuses on helping you find the best street food around. This Food Network app uses GPS to map locations of stationary carts and mobile trucks and provides any known vendor information, including menus and Twitter contact details. (Free, iOS)

LocalEats is “ideal for people who like to get to know a city’s hidden highlights.” It provides only listings for dining locations that are truly local—no national chains allowed. (Free for iPad; $1 for iPhone)

Foodspotting represents “a twist on the traditional food finder.” Using photographs taken by other diners, it encourages you to search for restaurants by specific dishes, browsing images of those dishes as you go. The pictures often help more than the tips: “Sometimes you don’t realize you’re craving a slice of pie until it’s in front of you.” (Free; iOS, Android, Windows, BlackBerry)
