Best Location-Specific IPhone App

Hollywood Star Walk IPhone App

Published on .

Available on iTunes

If you've ever tried to navigate the seemingly endless terrain of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you'd probably be willing to pay a lot more for this iPhone app than what it costs (a mere 99 cents). It's way better than any guidebook, because it's GPS- and Google Maps-enabled and has an augmented reality viewfinder that overlays nearby stars on your phone's screen as you hold it up. And it's way smarter, because it was created by the staff of The Los Angeles Times, who dove deep into their archives to unearth photos and fascinating biographical details about the stars.

The app works not only as a great standalone product and a service to consumers, but as a sort of ad for The Los Angeles Times as the ultimate local authority on Hollywood lore.
