This recommendations app uses location tagging and your social networks to help you discover new places. Currently in beta mode, Rekky lets you stay up to date with the hottest of spots from your friends and trusted tastemakers. Ideal for travelers, the app aggregates Instagram geo tags and social media check-ins to make personalized suggestions for venues to visit.

Described by Refinery29 as "Instagram meets Foursquare, with a touch of Yelp," the recommendations app uses Instagram locations plus Foursquare and Facebook check-ins to create your customized list. You can also create and follow lists of your favorites, with a private option if you only want to share with specific friends.

The free smartphone app is ideal for users who are in a new city.
