Let’s say you’re strolling around town and hunger strikes—you’re not really in the mood for a sit down, fancy smancy meal, but you’ve gotta answer the rumbling in your tummy. What do you do, what DO YOU DO?
If you had the newly updated Eat St. app—coming soon to a smart phone near you—you’d simply locate the nearest food truck. How does it work? Magic. No, of course not, we’re joking. It works with GPS technology… which is kind of like magic! The discover option allows you to search based on your location or the best dishes as recommended by fellow Eat St. app users.
You can also create a profile and link it up to your Facebook and Twitter accounts so everyone can see your double down hot dog or monster burger lunch. Plus, gain points by taking photos, adding tips, rating dishes, and reviewing vendors. These are all things foodies do anyway, so why not make it easier and web-friendly? The vendors can also get in the act by creating a profile for their truck or cart, posting recipes and offering special deals or discounts. Brilliant.
The iPhone App has been downloaded over 300,000 times and is available on iTunes. Check out www.EatStApp.com for more details.
Oh! And, don’t forget to catch the season three premiere of Eat St. Wednesday, May 9th with a double helping of episodes at 10pm et/pt and 10:30pm et/pt on Food Network Canada.
