Kevin Rose, formerly of Digg has been hard at work building up his new mobile app development company Milk Inc. Their first project, Oink was launched a few weeks back at the Web 2.0 Summit.
The premise, take location-based check-ins the next level by allowing people to rate things in that particular location. Want to find the best rated burgers in your vicinity? This app is for you. Visiting a tourist site, find the must-see spots. Users can gain “Cred Points” by uploading photos, performing mini-reviews or rating spots in a “thumbs up, down or half-way” fashion.
The app is now live in the app store and available to play around with but a special invite is required to participate in the rating fun. Stay posted for an update once I get my confirmation.
