Love this app for finding new restaurants
This app is very easy and quick and I use to find new restaurants in my current area. I travel alot so this is invaluable when I visit a new area I have not been. I just open the app which know where I am at all times, select food or shopping and up come recommendation with distance (mi and kph)I am from places. I can see available photos, any specials and a menu if available for a restaurant. Like the place then just select get directions and off I go. Great app! I love the addition of the query option to find any type place I desire
Now that Apple allows developers to respond to user reviews, they apparently also allow them to remove truthful negative reviews. Whatever.
This App relies on a horribly outdated database. Simple as that. Good luck in your search for ghosts.
