Another day, another food app to distract diners from enjoying a hot meal. The latest smartphone app to hit the market, Foodmento, is described as “a hybrid between Foursquare/Yelp and the #foodporn hashtag on Instagram”. Confused? Let us elaborate.
Basically, this app can be used to search for your favorite dishes around the world. How users use Yelp to search for specific types of food or restaurants, Foodmento lets people comb through user submitted photos to find a specific dish. The dishes are ranked by customers using the app so users can see at a glance how popular the food is. What’s particularly great about this app is how it has been integrated with other apps. If a user finds a dish they’re interested in trying Foodmento offers directions via Google Maps, reservations via OpenTable, and even takeout using Seamless where restaurant where the dish is offered, making it simple for users to stop drooling over food porn and start grubbing on it for themselves.
Besides locating dishes this app also helps to start a dialogue between pals when users find a restaurant that a friend has previously visited or checked into. Both users receive a notification so they can start chatting about their favorite dishes and how they enjoyed the restaurant.
Foodmento is currently available in the Apple App Store.
