Ratings and Reviews
Great idea, little less great execution
Loved the idea of being able to check the menu at home and talking about what options to choose to avoid certain things.
The menu is not readable on a regular iPhone, only on iPad or computer. From other reviews this looks like an old issue that has not yet been fixed.
It would be amazing if the app + menu would clearly state which category cuisine a dish falls under. Like it’s often seen at good restaurants using little indicators next to dishes to distinguish them: vegan (Vg) / vegetarian (V) / kosher (K) / nuts (nut) / meat (meat) / dairy (dairy) etc. This would make it so much more manageable for many people.
Needs a lot of work!
I noticed that the issue about the small print reported a year ago was not fixed. Also, I was able to add only one student (I have two children attending a PS). I suggest the menus are not uploaded as an image but entered into the system to prevent the text from being too small and difficult to read.
It’s understandable that NYC wants kids and their families to know what they are served on a daily basis whether you are a 7th grader or a 10th grader. Whatever the case may be, the menus are low quality. They are small and you can barely read them. Some might think it’s autofocus and will focus itself. It will not. The menus are pictures provided from their websites and the websites pictures are way better.
