Review of GoNappturale App

iPhone App of the Week: GoNappturale

For this week's iPhone App of the Week, we look at GoNappturale ($1). This app allows you to find natural hair salons — a godsend for any woman who's ever searched for an expert with natural Black hair. There are no bells or whistles here, just a pretty straightforward Yellow Pages-like service.

Upon opening the app, your phone will search for nearby businesses, and spit out a list of salons. You're provided with each establishment's distance and phone number, and by tapping the blue arrow at the right, you'll be sent to a map where you can get directions. Eventually, it would be nice to be able to add reviews and to search by zip code — in case you're wondering what's around elsewhere. But for $1, this app definitely fills a void in the natural hair market, and I can see it coming in handy during travel, if you're new to an area, or if you're just in need of a new stylist.
