Get reviews of the latest and greatest things to do from people you trust with Scoopt for iOS and Android
Discover the best shops, restaurants, hotels and more from people you know with Scoopt. Similar to TripAdvisor or Yelp, Scoopt provides you with reviews for a range of services, which can be viewed by category – such as Eat, Sleep, Shop and Escape – or by viewing a map of your nearby area. The vital difference is that reviews don’t just come from anonymous users in the ether, but people you know. Logging in via Facebook, you can find your friends on Scoopt – or invite them to join. If one of your friends is an expert in a subject, such as fashion, film or music, you can mark them as Trusted, and therefore prioritise their recommendations.
Adding your own reviews is a simple case of tapping the top bar and scrolling through an impressively detailed database of local amenities. Helpfully, any review you write can be easily edited or deleted, should you change your mind about a place. If you’re not a wordsmith, there is a star rating system and you can also include Instagram photos. A Flipboard for social reviews, the emphasis on photos also gives Scoopt a glossy, magazine finish. Uptake of the app is growing, with recommendations posted from near enough all over the world. However, it should be noted that users are clustered around major metropolitan areas, so if you live out of a capital city you will have to convince your friends to join the app to really feel the benefit.
A stylish social network, this app will only improve as its user base grows.
