Pizza Compass is the greatest app ever

If you’re like me, you’re always seeking the best slice of ‘za wherever you go.

If you're like me, you're always seeking the best slice of 'za wherever you go. Yelp is okay, but it's mostly full of contradicting reviews.

What if there was one tool that could help combat your hunger at any moment? My friends, please let me introduce Pizza Compass. This easy-to-use app locates where you are and the closest pizza shops within a certain radius. It is so simple, well-designed and fun that I want to shout it from the rooftops!

New York graphic designer Daniel Blackman came up with the idea while stumbling around late night with some buddies. "I designed it on a Tuesday morning and by Wednesday afternoon the fellas over at Oak Studios joined in and started developing it," he told Gizmodo. Oak Studios is a Brooklyn-based design agency that specializes in creating minimalist websites and applications.

So how does it work? Open the app and a pizza slice appears pointing you in the direction of the nearest shop, along with distance measurement. Spin the slice around with your finger to find other joints in different directions; it literally works like a compass. If the compass is a little too confusing for you, opt for the familiar map feature that pins all locations within walking distance. Upon making a selection, the app directs you to a Foursquare integrated page that gives you hours, reviews, photos and all of the information you need.

Watch the hilarious promo video below and go download the app in iTunes. For $0.99, you will never have to go pizza-less ever again.
