[prMac.com] Amsterdam - Makayama Software has released Barfly, their GPS-enabled travel guide to trendy bars and cool clubs around the globe. This new iPhone software has now been approved by Apple and is now available in the App Store. It lets you find the world's best bars and clubs at the touch of a finger.
If you're in a major city, at home or abroad, and would like to know where the nearest place to be is, just click on the Barfly button and it will tell you. Based on your location, it will list the nearest hip bar, from New York to London, Bangkok to Barcelona, L.A. to Amsterdam and 114 other cities.
Barfly is the ultimate guide to the 750 best bars in the world and is written and compiled by professional travel writers, who've contributed to Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and Time-Out. Barfly delivers high quality editiorial content, not countless badly described places, like other location based apps. So we're not listing tens of thousands of mediocre bars, but only the best ones in each city. Read reviews, see the pictures, get directions and visit each bar's website with a click.
An indispensable tool for travellers and city dwellers, Barfly tells you which bar has that spectacular and uninterrupted view, where you'll enjoy the most delicious food, the craziest cocktail or the finest DJs. And you incur no data roaming costs, because all the information is stored locally on your phone.
