Oink rating app for iPhone reaches App Store to rate shops

Oink now ready to download for iOS

Kevin Rose's startup Milk acted on its promise and posted its first app project, Oink (free, App Store). The iOS app serves as a way of recommending particular products at a location, such as a meal or a theme park ride, and ranks them based on the number of votes. Users can search for whatever's best in a given area, and they can favorite, vote down, or give a 'so-so' rank if they think an item ranks in between.

While it doesn't have pure check-ins like Foursquare, Oink tracks rankings and gives users "cred" that ranks them up and signals their votes as more trustworthy in certain areas. Some similar features, such as to-do lists and photo attachments, carry over.

Activity can share out over Foursquare as well as Facebook and Twitter.

The app needs at least iOS 4.2, but it will work on iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch players.
