Ratings and Reviews
Keeps telling me to enter a valid address even after I have done so.
The app keeps telling me to connect to wifi. I am connected to wifi. I tried turning off wifi and using LTE. The app co tinier to insist that I connect to the Internet. It would be an awesome app if it worked.
WARNING! You may not want to eat out after using this app!
A commenter on Facebook recommended this app after the recent Shigella incident in San Jose. I poked around and looked at the records for a few of my favorite local haunts and was quite surprised to see their unsavory past.
The app makes it really easy to find restaurants and clearly see previous inspection result summaries, which are quite detailed. And if that's not enough for you, you can even get the full report as a PDF.
Install and use if you value your health when eating out!!
