WHAT: The free Weotta app (as in, We "otta" go out to eat, we otta go to the movies) suggests options for things to do, see and eat near your current location or at more than 40 U.S. metropolitan locations. Unlike most "activity suggestion" apps, Weotta lets you fine-tune your searches by time -- today, this weekend, next week. You can also filter your activities by category, such as girls outing, romantic date, for the kids and more.

HITS: It's easy to save the restaurants, art galleries, parks, etc., that Weotta suggests. You just add them to your basket, and the app stores them for you by location and date. Don't forget to click through the image to the info; inside you might find hours, website, menus and even tips from Foursquare.

MISSES: Take the filters with a grain of salt. When I was searching for things to do in Las Vegas (next week, with kids), it recommended the exhibits at the Erotic Heritage Museum. Ahem. I also thought that yoga for a date night in Washington, D.C., was pushing it.
