Ever wished you could use your mobile phone to share a helpful tip about the great new special at the restaurant you are at? Ever find yourself trying to hail a cab in the rain and wished you could view helpful tips from others who had the same experience at that location?

PlaceTips is a simple application for your iPhone that allows you to quickly "add" a helpful tip for the immediate place you are at, which other users can then "view" when they arrive at that place.

The tips you add can be about anything, such as your garage sale, a fabulous biking trail, a free WiFi hotspot you found, free parking in a city, a business that is hiring, etc., that can then benefit others when they arrive at or near those places.

A business can also add special deals as tips, which you can then view when you arrive near that business' location. For example, a grocery store can add a special on milk, an electronics store on their TVs, a gas station on their lower gas prices, etc.

When adding a tip, you should have a descriptive "Subject" like "New Sushi Restaurant", "Free WiFi Hotspot", "Free Parking", "Best place for cabs". The "Details" of your tip should have enough information to adequately help other users. You should "Select Category" that best represents your tip. Before you publish the tip, you also have the option of "Tagging" it to a particular business or landmark, or just associating it with the GPS location.

When viewing a tip, you can view all tips, or filter them based on "Categories". You can rate tips - tips are displayed in order of their overall ratings. You can also map a tip to find the actual location associated with that tip.
