These days it’s almost impossible to find something there isn’t an app for. Whether you’re looking for take-out, a new outfit, or have a car come pick you up, it’s all just a tap or two away. In the bustling downtown area there are always a plethora of places to go – but how can you be sure that you have found the best one for exactly what you’re looking for?

Whether you’re just visiting downtown and want to be sure to find the spot where us locals go, or you’re tired of ending up at the same old place and scrolling through endless reviews to find a new one, the new app HEAT might be able to help you.

Similar to apps such as Yelp and Foursquare, the HEAT app provides hip and trending places over everything from the perfect brunch spot to the night club for a long and fun night out, but instead of star ratings and reviews the app combines location based services and real time location systems to identify trending places in real time, showing you where other users are hanging out at this very moment, and also gives you information on which days of the week and at what time the places are most popular.

Now there’s no excuse for staying in on tonight or not knowing where to grab brunch tomorrow to cure a rough week and maybe a drink or two too many the night before. Finding the right places to go has never been easier. Though there is always the hardship of choosing which one. In the bustling downtown area, chances are more than just one place is heating up on both weekdays and weekends, but this app gives you an easy overlook over when and where the people around you will be enjoying all of the spots this city has to offer.
