The app you wish you came up with
Ever find yourself saving pictures of food from the hottest restaurants to your Instagram collection in the attempts to someday recreate it when you are at that destination?! Luckily, there’s an app to keep you updated on all the hottest spots near you and find other people who are as down to munch as you are. Genius huh? I came across this app through social media and immediately wanted to go searching for a popular lunch spot. So delete your Instagram food collection, (you don’t need that anymore), text your friends, and plan GNO tonight. You won’t be disappointed.
interesting idea but could use some changes
I really like the concept of this app at its core. As of now, I only use Instagram to find fun, trendy places with a younger crowd. However, Skorch loses some credibility in my eyes by using terms like “clout,” “on point” and “hotness.” I can tell they’re going for a trendy, young vibe, but even as a 22 year old it still kinda misses the mark for me and sounds silly.
I also think that the likelihood of pulling up this app to take pictures while I am at a restaurant or bar is very slim. I would DEFINITELY post photos from my camera roll, but I doubt I would think to open up Skorch right away. There should be a camera roll option; you would get much more activity and posting.
This app seems like a great idea (yelp has never been my favorite and I think this could be an improvement) but I think there are still some bugs to work out. The map is great but I would prefer to read the places on the list. However, the list does not update to a specified city or by proximity to you, so you have to scroll a ton to get to the right city. It seems like it should do that and maybe it is just not working effectively. If that issue was solved I think this would be an amazing app!
