Foodspotting Is a Visual Guide to Good Food

Posted on Mar 6, 2011 in Top Rated Apps, Travel | comment

Foodspotting is a visual guide to good food and where to find it.

  • Version: 0.0.1
  • Size: 787KB (no apps2SD)
  • Category: Travel & Local
  • Price: Free



Foodspotting is a new way to share your favorite dishes. Unlike Yelp and other restaurant review websites, this app puts the emphasis on images and short description snip-its.

If you’re trying to decide what to eat, this app gives you the visual cues to find what you’re craving. You can browse dish images based on three category filters; nearest, latest, and best. Simply slide through the roll of images until you see something you like.

Toggle between image and map mode with the icon in the top right of the screen. When in map mode, you can adjust the map window and re-scan for foods in the current area. This is a very handy feature, especially if you know where you’ll be when lunch/dinner time comes around.

If you discover a great new restaurant or want to share your favorite dish with the world, use the photo upload option. All you have to do is select the restaurant, the type of food, and any comments you’d like to add along with your picture. Additionally, you can choose to share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, or Flickr.

Pros:

  • Find what you want to eat with pictures rather than text reviews
  • Elegant interface
  • Adjust map area and scan for new restaurant locations



Areas for improvement:

  • Methods of browsing more than a single image at a time would improve usability
  • Option to search for specific restaurants or foods



Conclusion: Unleash your inner foodie and share pictures of your favorite dishes.
