This was an app that I heard about before the release of the iPhone apps. And I WANTED it. You see my friends and I have a problem. The inability to make a decision when it comes to food. So this little app can come in handy. The GPS finds your location and will give a higher priority to restaurants nearer your current location. It also seems to pick higher rated restaurants more often. Just give it a shake (or push the button, but that’s not as much fun) to play the restaurant slot machine. When the name of the restaurant lands just touch it to get address & phone number. Touch the phone number to call the restaurant. Touch the address to launch Google Maps. Overall, pretty cool. You can also say that you’re in a mood for Chinese, lock it down on Chinese and it will limit the searches to what you have selected.
- Tie into your UrbanSpoon profile so it can suggest your “Spoon Up” restaurants more often and avoid restaurants you give a “Spoon Down” to.
- More cities listed. (Check here for current city availability ) This is a website thing as adding cities & restaurants take time. When I first joined the website ATL was listed but not MEM. It was, however, added shortly thereafter.
- Another website thing, Hours. This is very important to me because I work nights. Does a place we’re ordering stay open until late enough for someone to swing by to pick up food? Currently we have to call and ask.
