If you post food to social networks, we’d like to get feedback from you.

We’d like some insight as to why you like to put up pictures of food and also what other pictures you like to post at the same time.  It would also be helpful for us to know which social networks you use.

A REALLY Affordable Website for Your Restaurant

Premier Level subscribers get both a desktop and a mobile version website.  This is a great feature for restaurants that currently do not have a site.  No need to pay an expensive web designer or spend money on internet ads!

The Ultimate Food App provides a web presence with traffic driven by the Social Menu.

Plus anyone can create a professional grade website, simply by uploading information and photos of dishes and the restaurant.

Dear Travelers: How can The Ultimate Food App best help you find food?

Businessman Reading NewspaperIt’s what inspired us to invent the app in the first place.  You’re on the road.  You’re hungry.  You’re looking for food.  But you’re not sure who serves what, how it tastes, or what the service is like.

We’ve used and we’ve formally tested our competition in different locations in two different countries.  And we’ve rarely been satisfied with the results.

So if you travel, think about this common scenario.  And let us know what The Ultimate Food App should do!

Keeping It Fresh

Grilled Fish Entree in BarcelonaOne of the biggest issues we see with existing food apps is the problem with posts that are no longer relevant.  While they don’t show daily specials in the way that we do, there are still dishes that are out of date and lots of off topic posts.

Also, while our Restaurant Program is designed to help restaurants promote their business, the realities of our current economy have seen many wonderful eateries close.  We see this every day as we drive around town.  And unfortunately, like the vacant buildings you see in the real world, you see a lot of restaurant listings on existing apps for closed businesses.

So how does The Ultimate Food App deal with the problem of stale (pun intended) listings?  The first and foremost line of defense is our Social Menu.  Like other apps, users can report food or places that are out of date.  But since we are also restaurant-driven, the restaurateurs can also keep their specials updated.  And finally, we tap into online directories for updated business locations.

The other day, we talked about how not only restaurants, but also food trucks and vendors can post their specials and locations.  They can add the hours that specials are in effect and the listing will appear on the Social Menu only during the set times.  A food truck can indicate its planned locations and when it will be there.  The Social Menu keeps this up to date.

Of course, much of this depends upon the people using the app plus the restaurants, food trucks, and vendors providing updated information.  And we’ve seen that the reality with our competition is that this does not always happen.

So we have a final line of defense.  Our database will use analytic tools being developed by our parent company, Banshee Cloud LLC.  It will flag suspected stale postings for review.

If you’re dealing with food, fresh is essential and stale closes doors.  We’re taking steps to make sure that The Ultimate Food App provides our users with the most useful experience possible.

Attn: Foodies! How can we make The Ultimate Food App work best for you?

Are you seriously into food?  Do you keep track of the latest restaurant openings?

Or do you just like to go out and eat the best food out there?  And when someone posts a mouth-watering photo of what they ordered, do you want to know how you can get some?

As with anything else, you don’t have to be utterly hardcore to be considered a food enthusiast.  You just have enjoy finding great food!

Either way, we’d like to know how we can design The Ultimate Food App to best serve you.  What features do you feel are important?  How can a smartphone app or web page help you locate your next great meal?

We would love to get your personal Foodie Feature Feedback!

Which social networks would you share to?

The Ultimate Food App allows you to post your food and restaurant photos and reviews.  Plus our research indicates that people not only love to post food, but also their group photos when they dine out.  So we are adding a feature to publicly post the food and the restaurants.  But you can also privately post to your social networks at the same time.

So if you were posting your dining out, which social networks would you post to?  Facebook and Twitter will almost certainly be included in the final design.  But do you post to Tumblr, Pinterest, or Google+?  Are there any other networks you would love to post to from within our app?
