Not very specific or useful I was hoping this would have more specific information about food and drinks for each region, but it doesn't. It just has basic questions to determine the general riskiness of things. Unless you know absolutely nothing about basic food safety, it's all pretty common sense. Only worth 2 stars for usefulness, but I'll give it 3 stars because it has humor and personality in the way some of the questions and answers are written.
Great App!!! This app helps travelers make safer food and drink choices when traveling overseas. You select a country and answer a few short questions about what you're eating or drinking, and the app makes recommendations about whether you should eat it. It's a fun way to learn about safe food and water.
Not sure it's utility for "industrialized" countries. Guess it's being over cautious intentionally, as it says I shouldn't eat raw food (shows sushi) in the US. Funny that it asks if the food I'm eating in Antarctica is from a street vendor. I've heard great things about Antarctican street vendors.
Racial and stereotiphical This app is racial, how can be option to check if food vendor is OK or not but only available at developing countries and not in places like Sweden or Austria, totally useless
General advice given The app isn't terribly country specific. Instead it relies on some general guidelines that most travelers would know. It is nicely put together but the advice follows a simple flow chart and doesn't have anything detailed enough to warrant keeping it installed. It never allows some foods like runny eggs or raw meats.
Not worth the bother it's bad advice Tap water is safe to drink in the UK and France. It's often purer than bottled water. But the apps says avoid. In France beef is often eaten raw as with some fish and in over 50 years I have never been ill. As a previous person said it gives the same advice for many countries. I will uninstall and use common sense. By the way if i follow your advice i won't be eating hotdogs at the next ball game in the US
