The only food app for Shanghai

Listen. I use Foursquare and Yelp, but in Shanghai these apps will let you down. Big time. Here's why: When you find a place you like on these apps, it gives you the address in English. Say you jump into a cab, no Shanghai taxi driver is going to understand the english address! Bon gives an english address and one in Chinese, for your driver etc. Taxis are cheap, and you'll use them heaps no matter your budget.

Plus Bon is the app all the expats use, so you'll know what is hot right now, not 2 years ago.

Plus is directs any map loading to Apple maps, as google maps is blocked in China.

Most used App in Shanghai outside of Wechat!

I rely so much on my iPhone here in Shanghai and by a longshot Bon App gets the most use! Wechat first, then Bon App! It's quickly updated, has a large community and all the latest improvements are well received, however I wish the 'share to wechat moments' wasn't ticked as default for I don't always like to share...

But if you're moving to Shanghai, this is the one app you most definitely need to get around & eat well!
