For you apple freaks Remote is great if you have an iTV (even though you can not control the volume) otherwise the remote aspect for the laptop useless in my personal opinion.
hands down Google Mobile is a keeper. Urbanspoon has a great interface and powerful database, and is full of good nuggets about destinations. Unfortunately we all don't live in a major cities which is its largest drawback. Your better off doing a google search.
I'm very disappointed pcworld looks like you didn't thoroughly test these apps.

Thanks for posting your comments. I didn't experience the drop-out issues with AOL Radio that you noted in your post, and the apps were tested in a big city (San Francisco), which definitely added to the usability of the Urbanspoon app.
As far as thoroughly testing the apps, they were tested as thoroughly as one can in a three-day period. Of course, it's impossible to comment on a particular app's longevity or long-term reliability in such a short stretch of time; when apps crashed, I noted it in the article. The apps are all free, too, so there's no financial loss if you disagree with the reviewer's opinion.
Thanks again for your comments -- I hope this clears things up.

My friend and I both had problems with the AOL radio from the very beginning, he has the Edge iphone and I the new. Cheers to you for not having problems do you want to trade phones;)
I think one of the issues is with Apple's latest software, it's too buggy. Web surfing and using some apps have become unbearable at times.
If you do a pick of paid apps I hope you guys would spend a longer amount of time with them it would be really helpful because Apple does not offer trials.

Check out the Apple discussion groups especially those for windows (discussions.apple.com). The groups are overflowing with descriptions of major synch problems with these upgrades, especially related to Outlook Calendar.
