Each week we review a food related app, this week it’s Forkly – find out what the Lempert Report thought.
What it says it does:Forkly is a beautiful way to share and discover tastes. Forkly will help you discover a new dish around the corner, the best burger in town, or your favorite cocktail bar in a new city. With Forkly you can see what's good at a glance with the Forkly DishScore™, “want” items and easily find them later, when you’re hungry, share photos and let others know where to find the dish and of course share your tastes to Twitter, Facebook, Email and more.
What it actually does: Now you can quickly locate restaurants in your area and discover tasty items and restaurant recommendations by following others’ tastes. “Want” items and you’ll be reminded to try them the next time you are in the area. And if you love sharing with your pals on social media, you can link your account to post your Forkly directly on your Facebook or twitter feed. It’s a great way to find out what’s being served in your area, and what to expect from restaurants.
How useful is the information for target audience?: The app is very useful for those who love trying new restaurants as well as sharing photos and comments of the places they’ve visited. You’ll know exactly what to expect and even how to order before you ever step foot in the restaurant.
Ease of use: The app’s interface is straightforward, easy to use and it’s a pleasure browsing peoples photos of meals they’ve eaten in your area.
Who would best benefit from the app?: The app is great for those who love to share what they’ve eaten and also love to try new restaurants. It’s even great for those “creatures of habit” who visit the same restaurants time and time again and are looking for something new – at least they can see what’s served before they go.
