Yelp, watch out! My new favorite app to find things to do/places to go nearby.

This interactive "carousel" interface is simple and fun to use. Instead of scrolling through a list (although you can switch to that layout, too), you swing through a list of what's around you.
Really simple icons [coffee, restaurants, parks/rec, etc] at the top, super easy and intuitive to navigate. Gives you the snapshot Yelp/Citysearch reviews and can click to get more details. Only thing that would make it a five star for me is Foursquare/social integration.
I anticipate using this app a lot as I explore my new city of Seattle.
