Not Helpful - Need Better Variety of Quality Restaurants
Pos. It does help with selecting safe foods at the listed restaurants.
Neg. I don’t ever go to most of these restaurants. Qdoba is close but you app. tells me that they put soy in everything. I can eat corn tortillas, lettuce, and some hot peppers there basically.
Please add some slightly better restaurants like Chili’s, Applebee’s, Jimmy John’s, Fajita Republic, PF Chang’s, any of the steak houses like Ruth’s Chris, Noodles & Co., etc. How about some of the breakfast restaurant chains??! Not everyone goes to McDonald’s, etc. When we visit family in other states or are on vacation it’s not always the best choice but if I can go to Chili’s and not have to carry a stack of paper that is their safe foods list, because I can access an app like yours on my phone, it’s makes this whole food allergy thing a little bit easier. I will check back.
I am a Sunday school teacher of a toddler class. Many of my kids have food allergies, so I purchased this app thinking that it could help me plan their snacks. My kids are allergic to milk, nuts, sunflower, strawberries, and pears. This app only covers the top 10 allergies, and many of my kids' allergies are not on the list. Also, the app is only set up for eating out. I did not find any of this information out until after I had already purchased the app. I am sure that this is a great app for those with common allergies who want to eat at big chain restaurants. However, that is where its usefulness ends.
I just bought this and am looking at the allergy soy specifically. Unfortunately, food makers are lumping all soy products together. Soy lecithin doesn't present a problem for most people, and this app doesn't give me details about what kind of soy is in the food, so for that reason this doesn't help me at all. Everything is going to have a soy warning even if it doesn't have soy protein in it, which is the real cause for allergy. I'd like to see the soy ingredient list on this app.
