AppReview.com gave VeganXpress it's "Better" rating. 7/2/09
VeganXpress also features a full list of vegan / vegetarian beers, wine, liquor, snacks, candy and foods that you may not have realized were vegan.
Vegans often find themselves looking for a place to eat with non-vegan friends, family or coworkers, and the search can be somewhat difficult. While the population of vegans is growing, most restaurants do not specify which menu items are vegan. This app lists over 130 very common restaurants and their menu items suitable for the vegan diet. Whether you’re on a road trip, in a hurry, or looking for a place to eat with family or friends, you will be able to quickly find vegan options.
VeganXpress is updated regularly, so feel free to contact me with updates or new info that you may have. Follow VeganXpress on Twitter for live updates and information.

Disappointed- app won't work - waiting on a refund
I downloaded this app because I was super excited about having a Vegan food guide & after agreeing to pay for it and downloading it I received an error upon opening it that wouldn't let me open the app. I contacted the creator of this app and he told me that he didn't have any other issues with other users & to try deleting, rebooting & downloading again. I had the same results, so he told me to request a refund from iTunes support. I don't think it's my phone as I've not had any other issues with other app's I've downloaded. I'm disappointed that I can't use this app, and the response from the creator has implied that it's either my phone or user error that's causing this lack of functionality.
DO NOT BUY THIS APP!!!
The developer keeps changing the app for the worse. The alcohol-related sections no longer tell you which alcohols are NOT vegan, meaning you have to search half of them online to see if they aren't on the list because they aren't vegan or because Barnivore (the source) doesn't know them yet. (Same goes for certain restaurants, like Starbucks. The list gives the impression that all the Frapps are vegan, but the light ones are not and neither are many of the drizzles. Explaining that, especially for such customizable restaurants, is part of the purpose of the app.)
Another problem is the way sections are organized. The wines are listed by letter and then by country, which is awkward. A search bar within each category would make more sense.
Until this all gets fixed, don't buy the app. You won't use it.
A huge help
Mc Donald's puts beef fat in the fries so how do you know really what you're getting? It's been a huge headache for me but this app really makes things easier by letting you know what's vegan and what's not. Granted a lot of menu items are not listed but that's because we live in a world full of death but at least it tells you what is available so you can order a 7 layer from say Taco Bell and tell them no meat, cheese, or sour cream. Blame the companies for lack of vegan items not this app! Well worth the price to download now to find a makeup version.
