Survey Says: What should be in the iPhone app?

Thank you to everyone who's already sent in pictures. You guys are amazing. And who knew I had readers in Oklahoma and Texas? Keep 'em coming!

So I'm here to ask another question, though it doesn't require you to do anything other than write about a few of your favorite things:

What are things that I MUST include in the iPhone app? The things that, if I don't include them, you'll want to write me a slightly snarky letter?

Two qualifiers:

1. I've been given 300 entries to cover the entire Jersey Shore, so I might not be able to include every suggestion. But the best part about the iPhone app is that it WILL expand after its initial release, so I can keep what doesn't make the first cut on file for round two.

2. The app will cover things to do, places to eat, etc. I'm NOT listing hotels, motels, B&Bs, or experiences like "go this street of this beach because beach tag checkers don't go there." **UPDATE** It also won't list information like who requires what beach tag, and what towns have free parking. That's where the app is different than a guide book.

So what have you got? Drop your suggestions in the comments, or email me at jenmiller27 [at] gmail.com.

Voltaco's in Ocean City. Basically the only food place worth mentioning in OC (outside Mack and Mancos). Best Hoagies, Cheesesteaks and Chicken Cheesesteaks at the shore. Unfortunately- no seating, take out only and cash only.
