Find restaurants in your rewards network, in your area.

Why we like it -- You could log onto the web and check for the closest available eatery in the Hilton or United Airlines rewards program, or you could just pull out your phone and launch this app. For 13 of the major rewards networks, RN Dining lists eligible establishments by proximity or (on the iPhone) alphabetically.

You can also log in to your rewards program from within the app to view the points available at each restaurant and see how fellow network members rated the place.

Improvements we'd like to see -- The Android and the BlackBerry versions of this app are not nearly as polished as the iPhone version, either graphically or in terms of responsiveness. BlackBerry users have also complained that the app failed to launch on certain models.
