Read This Content on Your iPhone via the Know What Travel App!

by Jessica on February 7, 2012

At a certain point when I’d added enough content to Taster Tots L.A. to make it USEFUL to readers around the city, folks would suggest I turn it into an iPhone app. Ya know, with all my tech expertise and entrepreneurial zeal. Thankfully I happen to know someone with precisely those qualities.

So with the launch of my pal Ben’s Know What app available TODAY at iTunes, 50 Taster Tots picks are available as an app! Other awesome contributors to what’s essentially a “hyper-curated city guide” include fellow food bloggers and writers such as Joshua Lurie of Food GPS (who has three guides), Caroline on Crack, Eddie Lin of Deep End Dining, Gustavo Arellano of the OC Weekly, and L.A. super mama Rebecca Woolf of Girls Gone Child. Plus lotsa recs for not-your-typical points of local interest on topics including true crime, architecture history, hiking and public art, directly from people who give a damn and know their stuff. At the moment guides are available for Los Angeles and San Francisco, with more cities to come.

Wanna know how to get it, how it works and who else is involved? Keep reading, please…

Get started by downloading Know What from the iTunes app store for $2.99, which comes bundled with 400 recs as part of the Know What Essentials package. Additional guides written by the Know What contributor experts cost $0.99 to $3.99 each. (The Taster Tots Know What app is $1.99 for 50 locations.) All guides are GPS enabled and have the bells and whistles to maximize utility and help you get more out of your city! At the moment, the Know What collective has about 1,300 locations to share. Not too shabby.

And while Know What is categorized as a travel app, it’s still useful for locals. Since as my dad likes to say, no matter where we are, we are ALWAYS tourists.

Below is the complete list of contributors and their Know What guides. Please show some love by liking Know What on Facebook and following them on Twitter. Thanks!!
