"This app is awesome for showing what a store has to offer and totsling up all of the calories, fat grams and all the other heakth items my doctor wants me to be aware of. "
"With this app on my phone I can see the major resturant around me. We were travel 60 mph down the highway on a trip and used the map feature. It was showing me all the resturants in a 5 or 10 miles radius. No guessing on the Blue Sign on the highway. There was also an option to look for a particular restaurant like Subway, and just showed the subways in a 35 mile radius from my location. Cool! Also great when you are in a new town and have no idea what is available."
