Let's Meet for Coffee
Up for Coffee? is a neat little Google Maps app that shows you nearby coffee shops and then allows you to send a friend an invite to meet. The application works as a very quick way to pick a coffee shop and fire off an invite to a friend.
The application uses the Google Places API to show you coffee shops that are near your current location. If you want to meet up elsewhere you can use the search function to find coffee shops near other locations.
When you select a coffee shop on the map you can then pick a date and time and send an invite via email with a calendar attachment or log-in with a Facebook account and invite a friend via the Facebook event calendar.
