Inspector Ralph is your personal NYC restaurant inspector!
How to use:
When the app is launched, Inspector Ralph plots dozens of nearby restaurants based on your current location.
By tapping a restaurant pin on the map, you will be shown the restaurant's name, address, and the Ralph button.
If you tap on the Ralph button, Inspector Ralph will appear to tell you the selected restaurants current sanitation grade as well as the total number critical violations the restaurant has been charged with.
To dismiss Inspector Ralph, simply tap on him or press the escape button on the top of the screen.
For more information on a restaurant's sanitation inspection history, press on Inspector Ralph's speech bubble. By doing so, this will take you to a detailed list of past inspection violations. Critical violations are denoted by a red flag.
By tapping the refresh button, Inspector Ralph will reload new restaurants.

Ratings and Reviews
Ralph is the Man!
The data are out there, but it’s useless without having access to it in a timely, convenient presentation. This, Ralph provides, since it is map-based and location-aware, and gives easy access to the citations and reports behind the letter grades. All this with a sense of humor. Grade A app!
Maybe if it worked outside NYC
I'm not currently in NYC, but I'd like to plan my trip ahead of time. From what I understand, I'm not in range of any restaurant currently so I can't get the score until I'm close by. Well, that doesn't help me because I don't plan on wondering around aimlessly, I just wanted the current scores so my trip will be efficient
Such a great app
Inspector Ralph is a great way to stay updated on the sanitary conditions of your favorite NYC restaurant!
