Toronto bars, pubs, late night eats (now an iPhone app)
Today we're excited to announce the release of our newest iPhone app. Following in the footsteps of our main blogTO app and our summer patio guide app we now have a third app to add to our roster: the Toronto bars, pubs and late night eats app.
As the name suggests, this new app, sponsored by Questrade, is intended to serve as your go-to guide for a night out in Toronto. The app not only includes photos and need-to-know details about hundred of locals bars and pubs but it's the first app that we know of that helps you satisfy those 3am hunger cravings after last call.
Here's a complete rundown of what we've packed into the app:
- Photos and info for hundreds of bars, pubs and late night eat spots in Toronto
- Call, map and get directions at the touch of a button
- Look up places by nearby, neighbourhood or venue type (bar, pub, nightclub, karaoke bar, late night eat etc.)
- View complete hours of operation for each business
- Search for places based on what's open right now, open today or open tomorrow
- See what beer is on tap, what hour the kitchen closes, and whether the place has live music or a patio
- Filter search results based on whether the place has live music, a patio, serves pitchers of beer or has beer on tap
- Look up places by keyword search
- Can't decide where to go? "Shake" the phone for a suggestion
- Connect the app with your Facebook account and blogTO user profile
- Create a list of your favourite places for easy access
- Share places in the app via Twitter, Facebook, email and SMS
And here are some screenshots so you can know what to expect.
