iWant is essentially the combination of 3 location based apps : Restaurant reviews (Yelp, UrbanSpoon), Movie showtimes (Flixter, Fandango) and Yellow Pages (Yellow Pages, AroundMe). Why use iWant instead of these separate ones ? • iWant is faster,…..

The last upgrade seemed to fix the search problems, but this app still has some issues. I cannot e-mail the developer, because I cannot highlight any of the e-mail functions. Also, when I search cafes I get a very limited selection of coffee places and none of the local Starbucks appear, however, if I select the "Restroom" button then all local Starbucks appear.
Helpful, informational, but not engaging
This much information in one app makes it useful. Information is clear of clutters - another positive. Integration to Yelp and other review site is unimposing - more positive. But interaction is a bit too plain to be engaging.
And why is "Robert Pattinson" in every Bing search box? Even if it's a sponsor item, it shouldn't follow into the actual Safari screen.
Sorting by distance works in most categories, but doesn't seem to work in, say, Banking. What's so special about these categories? (I noticed similar behavior in other apps - banking, ATM have always had this problem.)
The most serious, though, is that it would be a miracle to get Grocery from Yang Yang Acupuncture. I mean, I pass by that place often, and I'm pretty sure you don't want to shop there. OK. You do shopping in Dance Attire. But hardly for grocery. Am I right? Jamba Juice serves snacks. Do you really call it a grocer?
Information aggregation (with a silicon brain) is hard work. I know. It could be that Yelp is wrong. But...
This app has some issues that need to be worked out. The grocery store I work at doesn't show up under groceries but the CVS and walgreens on the same road do? The 99 restaurant across the street from my house isn't under the restaurant section but it shows up under night life or whatever it's called. Ok app but it needs some work. Hopefully updates will fix these problems.
