There is a new iPhone and iPad app that points consumers in the direction of the nearest pizza establishment. Because who doesn't crave pizza all the time?

According to CNET, the Pizza Compass is ideal for those visiting an unfamiliar city or in a hurry. It was created by small development shop Oak Studios.

The app resembles a compass and points users in the direction of the closest pizza shop. It will also tell you if it's open or closed. If you're very to the restaurant, the virtual pizza slice will even start "steaming."

According to CNET: "The Pizza Compass app is banking on a combination of self-deprecating humor, app novelty and practical use. Due to the nature of the app (pizza!) and its well-orchestrated promotional campaign, Pizza Compass is already making a splash around the Web after only a few days on the App Store."
