Great App, Needs Improvement.
This is a great app for those looking to find lunch/dinner from the many food trucks of NYC. However, it could use some updates:
-The app sometimes continues to use the gps even if you close the app (you have to close the app manually through the multitasking menu)
-The map is not always up to date. Trucks that tweet their location are not updated throughout the day. Ex. Truck A is at St. X from 12-3pm. It then moves to St. Y and opens there. The app continues to show the truck at both locations (this happened to me today, btw). Solution: Pulling the last couple tweets from the trucks and displaying only the locations/tweets from a certain amount of time ago.
Other than that, it's a great app. Please update it!
I work at 23rd and Broadway, and this app is singlehandedly responsible for finding my lunch 2-3 days per week. I have discovered food trucks that were just a couple blocks further than I usually venture, some of which are now my favorites. I can't recommend it enough.
I am a food truck junky, and this provides my fix whenever I need it. I never have to worry about missing a truck I love - or haven't tried before. Totally ingenious way to organize Twitter feeds.
