The Internet is full of places to get reviews on movies, TV shows, music and restaurants but it’s scattered all over the place.
An ambitious app called Vurb is trying to become the consolidator of all those disparate chunks of information for people, places and things.
Vurb allows you to search for Places, Movies, TV shows, Music, Videos or Events based on your location so it can gather all the information from various review sites in one place.
If you’re looking for info on a movie, once you determine you want to see it, Vurb will even show you showtimes at nearby theaters.
If you’re looking for information about your favorite musician, Vurb can gather recent news, upcoming performances and most popular songs for you.
If you’re looking for a place to eat, the various user comments from popular review sites are all consolidated on one screen along with mapping info and hours.
Vurb, spelled V U R B is free and available for iPhone and Android smartphone users.
