According to WillowTree Apps, this is the first app that uses Facebook’s likes data. Of course, you’ll have to sign into to Facebook to use Likes. Once you’re set up, you can see which places, ranging from bars to universities, have garnered the most of your friends' likes. You’ll also be able to see likes for other stuff such as books and magazines, companies, movies and television shows, people, brands, and more. For instance, when I used the app, The Beatles topped the list for most-liked band. (Radiohead was a close second.) And I could see which of my Facebook friends liked the bands.
Since the app totally relies on Facebook likes, it isn’t especially useful for people who don’t have many Facebook friends or whose friends aren’t active “likers” on the social network. Personally, I don’t “like” many things on Facebook. Also, the majority of my Facebook friends don’t live near me, so when I tried to find a restaurant within five miles of my current location, only five showed up, each with only one like all from the same person.
Likes certainly looks as if it has potential for active Facebook users, though. It’s available for free on the App Store and requires iOS 4.3 or later.
