So, here we have an app for the last thing left for there to be an app for right? Finding the best place to get some wings! Kluckr has you covered, I think. Let’s see what Kluckr is all about.
Welcome to Kluckr! THE location finder for the wing connoisseur.
Kluckr's wing span already covers 20,000+ locations across the country... but we will continue extend Kluckr's reach.
If you have a thing for wings, tell Kluckr where you go and rate what you ate! Review a wing location and we'll reward you with points--points that can add up to more than just chicken-scratch. Be sure to tell your friends who flock to wing joints that Kluckr is now in their corner. Click onto Kluckr to instantly organize a wing-ding of a party.
Loading up Kluckr you will see that it wants to use location services to find out where you are. How else would it know what wings to suggest right?
I chose initially to “not” use location services. It prompted me to search for my city. Next, I let the location services talk to Kluckr, now I have “near me” and “choose city”. I chose to find a city near me. When I tried this out for the screenshots, I was in Cottondale, but I live in Tuscaloosa so I chose that city.
Now you are greeted by a big old wheel. You can spin to get a random suggestion. I am not sure if it’s supposed to key off ratings or be random since I got multiple results for the same category. See below.
All in all, I got 4 different suggestion for the category, “Heat”. So if the app suggests by rating, it might be that none of our restaurants are rated in T-Town yet.
Next is a list view by category. From here you can select a location to get more info.
By selecting a location, you get more info. A map, Ratings and ability to rate yourself, reviews, and if you are registered with Kluckr, you can set up a wing meeting of sorts with friends. I do not want to sign up, so I can’t show how to make reviews and rate locations. I can see the value in this, but I just don’t like to sign up for every site that comes along.
If you are a wing lover, this is a must have, even at $0.99. The concept is great and the interface is awesome. I am not too thrilled with the spinner, the list view of locations are enough for me. The easy navigation and having the map embedded within the app make it very usable.
- Super concept, just needs some participation from wing lovers to fill out the database.
- Easy Navigation with good details on the locations
- Not free. Not that I mind paying $0.99, but this app, while well done, has a concept that is better suited for a free app.
