Where, by Boston based "uLocate" is an example of a company trying to do too much in an iPhone application, and failing miserably. Clearly, "uLocate" is the kind of ambitious big company that felt that it had to "own" the mobile space, and by doing so had to create the ultimate app combining every type of local information available from locations of StarBucks outlets, to comparison shopping for unleaded gas, concerts and even star charts (of the astronomical kind).
The interface is confusing, with multiple different "modes" of showing the local information. There is at least one social network (called "buddy Beacon") thrown into the mix, a photography application (upload your local photos), and shameless promotion of starbucks at every opportunity. This kind of app probably cost a lot of money to develop and fails on every level. Avoid at all costs
