We have over 2,000 restaurants in the database, all text is in English - we hope our Hebrew & Jewish friends are okay with that until we have time to translate. We expect users of this application to submit new restaurants and modify current restaurants. So we expect the database to grow significantly over time. Please contribute and this will be the best kosher database in the world. Adding/Editing and reviewing restaurants features are in version 2.0. So make sure to add/edit and review your favorite places!
Travel and looking for a kosher restaurant to eat at but want to find the restaurant that is nearby? Now you can, with this Jewish Kosher app for the iPhone or iPod Touch. The Kosher iPhone application will look up the nearest kosher place to eat from your current location, using the iPhone's GPS features. If you do not have GPS or localization on, you can type in a location or a name and we will show you kosher restaurants in that location. In addition, we added a kosher symbols database so that you can quickly look up what kosher symbols are backed by which organizations or Rabbi. Finally, you also have the food blessings and prayers in Hebrew at your finger tips for Ashkenaz, Sefard, Edot Mizrach and Chabad.

What's New in Version 3.5
-Metro area fix
One of my most-used apps
This is a fantastic app for Kosher keepers. It has a GPS feature so you can check on restaurants no matter where you are. Incredibly convenient. It's easy to map and call the restaurants straight from the app and I've had no problem with that function at all.
I have very few problems with it but here they are:
> In high density areas with lots of restaurants, the map part of the app can't really function, ie in NYC. The list view is the only way to use i
> This isn't the app's fault, but some of the hechsherim are kind of shady, so don't consider a restaurant's inclusion in the app as an endorsement of the hachgacha.
There's a nice filter, so you can limit the types of restaurants found. It is a bit more difficult to use if you're looking for a restaurant elsewhere. However, you can filter by city and community.
There are some complaints about the database being Shamash and Shamash listing "undependable" hashgachas. Well, the app lists who gives the hashgacha. If you don't like the hashgacha, don't go to that place.
Update for iOS 6/7?
This needs an update to expand to the larger iPhone displays! (5, 5S, 5C).
Great app otherwise but always double check the hechsherim (of course).
Including CRC's list of "acceptable hechsherim" and somehow indicating which restaurants are on it would be a valuable addition.
