Helpful when it works. My big thing is that I am unable to save places. "No connectivity..." is the error message that I see in a big red rectangle at the bottom of the page. Saving places I want to try is the most common use I have for the app and it doesn't work. UPDATE: Although I update apps on two phones daily, I took the developer's advice and uninstalled on both phones. I have reinstalled on the Pixel 7 and I am now able to save restaurants. Whew.

Hi Apple, thanks for being a long-time user. We're always working to be bug-free, but there are sometimes unique issues. Also, if you've had the app installed for a very long time that could be part of this. Will you please uninstall and re-install and if that doesn't fix things please email us.

Happy Cow has been my go-to life saver for over 5 years now! The app is super easy to use, with my favorite option being able to see restaurants with vegan options! Sometimes, it's hard to find a great vegan spot when you're traveling, but you can always find a place with vegan options! Also, I love the reviews system. People tend to be honest and helpful with their reviews. Keep supporting Happy Cow!!!

Best app for finding local vegan eaterie restaurants, but it's got several long standing bugs that create a lot of friction. First, the call button doesn't do anything, and no phone number is visible. You have to search the internet for a phone number. Second, the website button almost never works, because it tries to use an in-app browser that almost never loads the website. Even when it does load, it has limited functionally to the point of being useless. Fix the call and website buttons!

Hi Chris, we believe this was resolved last year, is this still an issue for you? We mentioned the number is next to the call button; you may have custom settings on your device preventing it from being clickable. Please let us know if you're still having any issues and hope you'll update your rating here in support! Email: android@happycow.net
