My Streets is a very specific app for the iPhone that allows you to browse your contacts by their country, state, and city instead of the traditional methods we're all use to. This app pulls all of the information from your Contacts app and loads it up for you without you having to do anything yourself. While the app is very easy to use and fairly interesting, it doesn't seem like something that a lot of people would want to use.

Take a look at through your contacts for a minute. How many of them actually have the address listed? If you're looking at over 50%, then this app becomes fairly useful. If you're not, then as you can see in the video, there isn't much you can actually do with this app.

Once you load it up, it syncs with your contacts and gives you the furthest out view possible. You start with country, which for many of you won't offer too many options. Then you go into state, which might open a few more doors. But it's not until city that you really see any of the benefit of this app. Now, if you constantly find yourself stuck in random cities and you cant remember which friend lives where, this might help you out quite a bit.

My Streets isn't a great looking app. Nor does it really offer that much to the general iPhone community. But if you're the type of person who likes to view your contacts by location, then this app is right up your alley. Definitely not for everyone, but it's not a bad app overall.
