There are plenty of travel-friendly apps and helpful web pages that will bring you all the information you need to find your way around town. But it's possible that none of them do it with as much flair as Geodelic.

Geodelic is a location-based app for your iPhone or Android handset that basically tells you what's around you. Based on different search categories, you can find bars, food, banks, shopping, kid-friendly places to hang, pretty much anything you need to fill your day in a new place or familiar territory. But really, you can get that kind of data from any number of search apps, right? What makes Geodelic awesome is it's delivery — there's a sweet and colorful carousel of category info with you in the center of it all. Plus, Geodelic incorporates info from Eventful (another fave of mine) to alert you of cool things that are happening around you right now so you can take in a performance or head out for a nature walk you didn't know existed. I can't get enough of this app, and you really can't go wrong since it's totally free.
