A lot of food applications are now being used by Smartphone users to locate the nearest restaurants, food finds and latest reviews. Recently, a new application topped the Food and Drink category of different apps stores. I’m referring to Zomato, a discovery platform providing detailed information on different restaurants accessible to you. The application enables you to explore and search for restaurants by locations or cuisines and even for a specific craving.
With the explore option, you can access the list of nearby restaurants having their locations, cuisines being served and the average rating given by different foodies who already tried the food place. You can also filter the list in terms of location, cuisines, cost, and other information such as operation hours, WiFi accessibility, if they accept credit cards and serving Halal Meat.
For the instant recommendation option, the application features restaurants instantly giving the different details available. Shaking your phone will enable you to view the next restaurant being recommended. You can also access the menu; see some photos of the food and the place, and some reviews posted by foodies and connoisseurs. Another feature of the app is that it also provides the exact location of the restaurant by showing it on Google Maps.
The application also ranks the Top 25 Trending restaurants for a specific week on your location. By tapping the call icon on the application, it will automatically connect you to the line of the restaurant without searching their contact numbers. Aside from top restaurants, it also presents the leaderboard of foodies in your area. You can also view some featured reviews for the week.
Zomato: App for the Foodies
By creating your own profile, you can create restaurant reviews and give rates from 1 to 5. You can also follow foodies and connoisseurs to be updated of their reviews and recent activities. Another one is that you can also list down your favorite restaurants, monitor your network and create your wishlist.
The main color of the application is red, black, and white which is really a good combination for a pleasing look. You can connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts for easily navigating the application. Since it is real time, an active and good connection is needed to use its services.
The application is definitely a good one for foodies who want to try different food places and cuisines near them. It has already listed 100,800 restaurants and having a total of 91.6 million foodies worldwide. The application is now available in India, United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, Qatar, South Africa, and Philippines.
