Nice concept. App has some tech bugs that need to be fixed. Here are the ones I've encountered so far. When clicking on any restaurant links or more info for events, the app crashes & closes. App does not open the intended links. When creating a Collection list, the drop down for Public versus Private does not let you select Private because the drop down lays on top of the input Collection Name text box, so it only let's you click inside the text box and not select the Private option.

Disappointed with this app. I didn't find it very useful. Seeing food options are great, but not useful without a menu, a hyperlink to the different websites, something more than what it offers. I would have to leave the app to retrieve that information. Not much here but names and reviews. Simply not enough. Good luck with the app. I love what you were trying to do.

This app is great. I use it locally and when I travel. We used it in Las Vegas, NV and let us to Gritz Cafe for breakfast/brunch. The food and the service were very good! I now go to Gritz Cafe when I'm in Vegas.
