What's New in Version 2.2.155
Excellent in theory, could go much further
This is a great solution for foodies who love to keep track of their favorite restaurants but also take note of places they walk by & don't want to forget. The map feature is key, but there are plenty of ways this app could be improved even further. I would love to see filtering options on the map itself & a better tagging feature (show my most recent tags first so I don't have to type "brunch" in 200 times, have the list sort from shortest to longest so "brunch in scandenavia" isn't the first option I accidentally click, etc). I could easily see this getting incorporated with friends (sending a person a pin to drop on their map as a recommendation where the other person could accept/deny) & tying it in with Open Table so you can instantly reserve a restaurant. There's a large upwards limit for this app - would love to see it flourish and spread!
Two months ago I would have given this app 5 stars, but there has been a persistent bug that makes the app quit every time you try and add a new restaurant making the app totally useless. I keep checking back to see if they've released a fix, but there has been no updates and the app is totally useless without being able to add new restaurants. I really hope the developers read this and do something about it because this app used to be such a great app and I am really disappointed I can no longer use it.
It's been far too long since the app starts crashing for this to still be an issue. An app that you cannot use is a poor quality app. Fix the crashing (when I add a new restaurant and select either love it or want to try it, the app closes without adding). If you fix, you'll restore your high rating.
I've gone up and down in my ratings. I love this app, but lately it crashes when I try to add a new place. Please fix.
I found the functionality that allows me to add places in various cities. Took me a minute though. I'll accept that I didn't read the option well enough, but Steve Krug might argue there's a usability issue there.
I am loving this app!
