'Spot' is a personal recommendation app that helps users find "the best places in the world." Unlike other local discovery apps such as Yelp and Trip Advisor, Spot delivers curated suggestions that are designed to suit your own personal preferences.

Rather than relying exclusively on user-generated content, Spot scours the web to see what restaurants, bars, hotels and stores consumers are discussing. The app also draws on information from local curators and other travel experts in order to provide a more broad range of data. If a user searches for a particular service, Spot will then deliver smart recommendations instead of a long list of choices. The idea is that users will have a curated list of recommendations that aligns with their own interests.

The app is currently in its private beta phase, but the company is eager to extend the service to the public in the near future.
