If you travel frequently for business, you may know what it feels like to be headed to a new town, and not know anything about it. Sure, you could use Google and hunt around for information, but why do that when an app like What's It Like In… is available? This new app for the BlackBerry PlayBook by jbloomDesign is a good way to discover upcoming events, weather, and recent pictures on Flickr of the destination. With over 22,000 cities worldwide that you can choose from, you're sure to find some cool stuff. And if you're not a traveller, this is a fun way to find out about what's going on around the world. Take the kids on a vacation without ever leaving the couch, and it only costs $1.99. I hope with future updates they can include local attractions and tourist hotspots, but for now it's an interesting little app and fun to browse through.
