    I had a Windows Phone for all of two weeks, then went back to the iPhone last month. Anyways, about the only feature I really liked was called "local scout". It basically looked up all the nearby restaurants, coffee shops, etc. using your location and showed reviews for them based on a scale of 1-5 stars.

    Does anyone know of any apps for something like this on the iPhone?

    AroundMe is iPhone equivalent to Windows Phone Local Scout

    I just downloaded AroundMe to my iPhone 4. It provides a similar location-based lookup service as Local Scout on Windows Phone. The look and feel is a bit different. For example, for restaurants you get to the info like reviews and website links after you select a restaurant, rather than see it in the initial listing like Local Scout does. It has quite a few more categories than what Local Scout does. This app is free, with an ad-free version for $2.99.
