Yogoer $ .99 (yogoer.com) features a comprehensive map of yoga, Pilates, meditation, and other wellness classes, based on the address you enter into your phone. As with all the apps, locations appear on a grid map, with pins color coded by category (Yoga, Core, Dance, and Fitness), showing addresses and phone numbers.
While it makes location scouting easy, Yogoer does not offer class or instructor information you just get a link to a website. On a recent jaunt in the West Village, a quick scan while on the corner of 13th street and 7th avenue pointed me to Integral Yoga, Karma Kids, The New York Center for Kripalu Yoga, and much more. A click on the map pin directs you to a studio profile, which, depending on how much info has been updated by the studio gives you stats like address, phone number, class prices and new student deals.
Some of the profiles are bare bones. Because Yogoer is user-fueled, you can add studio information to fill in spots that they may have missed, or review your favorite class and teachers. While this app offers the least amount of info, currently, its by far the most comprehensive for complete fitness, since it tracks down more than just yoga classes. And the price is hard to beat 99 cents for the download.
And it’s also the prettiest?
A couple other distinctions: Yogoer is the only app with search you can find a studio by name, or search by address. And, as they mentioned, we’ve included all wellness studios that offer yoga, whether they’re dance studios, Gyrotonic, or gyms.
Come on guys, let’s go fill in those 450 profiles ;)
