Does just what it says - and that's absolutely perfect
I have dozens of restaurants that I like to frequent and I am always looking for places to potentially add to the list. I've tried to do this in Yelp, Urbanspoon, and others. I've even tried using maps and simply making lists in note apps. None has really worked all that well. One afternoon in this app and I have gotten a much better lists of restaurants to try and old favorites. We often go out spur of the moment and this app makes it simple to see what's nearby. If I pass an interesting looking restaurant I can quickly find it and add it to the list. It has just the right amount of functionality to make it useful.
Only two gripes - I wish I could filter by tags.
Also, I wish they had a similar app for events so that I could see recurring events I've enjoyed and are coming up. Too often we are busy and miss events we have enjoyed in the past. This developer understands how to make this sort of app usable. I wish they would apply that to events as well as restaurants...
Used to be great
This app is great as long as you never delete it from your phone. Despite creating an account and logging in, specifically for the purpose of being able to save my bookmarks, whenever I have to delete this app for space purposes, all of my bookmarks get deleted. When I reinstall and log back in, the app ACTS like my bookmarks are still there, the number is accurate, but the list is empty. I think the developer has stopped working on this because it seems like an easy thing to make sure that a logged in account actually shows the saved information. Unfortunate, since it was a great app. I'd rather just create a list in Evernote and know that all of my info is there no matter whether I delete the Evernote app or not.
Love it, but...
I love this app. I was looking for a simple list app where I could keep all the restaurants that my friends and I are always saying, "We should go there." This app definitely fit the bill with its simple organization and solid navigation. It's got the simple UI I was looking for and not many bells and whistles to mess with. But it's SO BUGGY. It crashes a lot and currently won't let me add any restaurants or editing any of my existing. I'm really sad about all the bugs because the app definitely fits the bill for what I wanted and needed. PLEASE fix this so that I can continue using this!
