Crowdsourced Reviews For The Most Popular Dishes

Crowdsourced Reviews For The Most Popular Dishes

The recently released Dish.fm app uses existing social media reviews to help consumers browse the best individual meals by restaurant.

Restaurant reviews can help you pick the best-reviewed restaurant in the area, but what do you order once you get there? The Dish.fm app will be able to help indecisive customers search for the best-reviewed dishes and offerings based on restaurant choice.

Powered by millions of reviews pulled from Foursquare, Yelp, and other social media sites, Dish.fm aims to help choose the dishes that receive the most positive and most popular online reviews. The app also uses Instagram and other social media images, where available, to provide consumers with not only a written review, but also a visual one.

The Russian-based team, Farminers Limited, had launched a similar application this past summer that was unsuccessful due to too great a reliance on crowdsourced data, and not enough provided reviews. The new app should amend this problem by using existing social data, but Dish.fm is currently only available for the New York City and San Francisco markets.

The app also allows users to submit their own reviews, agreements, or disagreements  after experiencing a recommended dish. The two-market test run should tell whether this new and improved version of the app will be able to process and provide accurate and helpful reviews. As the description at the app store says, ‘…for real foodies. Only order signature dishes worth tasting.’

The app, which was released yesterday, is available on iTunes if you live in the New York or San Francisco areas. Check out the video below to see how it works:
