A bit about MapHook

Since MapHook was kind enough to provide an iPhone for you all to win, here’s a little about the app: It’s available on iPhone and Android (via the Google Play Store) and is a pretty good way to find interesting things to do, places to eat, and events to see. It can pull data from Yelp, Foursquare, Groupon, Wikipedia, Twitter, and other services, so you can see trending points of interest nearby, wherever you are. You can also create your own “hooks,” or points of interest, and even create a collection of them for other readers. Below is a collection of hooks around New York City, showing places where famous TV shows were filmed.
