Our App of the Day today is Reqvu for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.0 or later.
We saw Kevin Rose's Oink app come out recently which takes location based check-ins a step further by being able to rate things inside places you visit and everything in general. Reqvu also does more than the standard check-in using location services and allows you to request videos and pictures from friends at certain locations around the world.
You can announce to your friends where you are by checking-in and then in Action Mode you can say that you are ready to take videos and photos for them to see. I saw a beta preview of this several weeks ago and it looked great, I'm going to give the final version a try right now.
Our App of the Day today is Apple Store 2.0 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.2 or later.
Apple just took the covers off version 2.0 of its Apple Store app.

them shipped to your door.

select Apple products.
- Buy an iPhone with just a few taps.*
- While in an Apple Store, quickly purchase accessories on your own with EasyPay
(requires iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S)
- Request help, check in for reservations, and meet up with a Specialist at the store.

Our App of the Day today is Oink for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.2 or later.
Location based apps such as Foursquare are all the range on smartphones thanks to the introduction of GPS on the phone.
Kevin Rose's Milk Inc. has just taken the covers off their first app, Oink. Yeah, like the pig "oink" "oink". It uses your location to find nearby places and instead of checking in, you rate products and services offered by those nearby stores, restaurants and so on.
Be careful of your first "oink" notification, it scared the crap out of me. Heh!
Oink is an easy way to rate and rank the things around you. Instead of just rating places, you rate the items inside. You could easily find the most popular items on a menu and see if a friend has tried anything there. Then if there's something you like, it's just a single press to rate it and share it with friends.
