Very helpful App for finding BO businesses near me! Only thing I would recommend is having links to the actual business but that's about it.

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.
