"For its eponymous app, the Infatuation, a dining-advice juggernaut that acquired Zagat earlier this year, rates restaurants in 31 major U.S. and international cities with a reliable editorial perspective. The “Nearby” map view is handy, as is the ability to save favorites... Amusingly specific themed roundups—”Where to Eat With Someone Who’s Cooler than You,” “Where to Go on a Date When You Haven’t Met this Person Yet,” “Where to Eat after a Bad Week”—are more consistent and actionable than all that wayward Yelping."- Ryan Haase, Wall Street Journal
“Apps for finding restaurants are plentiful, but most of them leave me feeling overwhelmed. I want someone to choose for me, and I trust the authors of this app to do that. Their taste has never led me astray.” - Joshua Brustein, The New York Times
With this update, The Infatuation is removing ratings from our app. Our 8.7s and 7.2s helped us highlight great restaurants, but as we adapt to a changing reality, removing ratings is an adjustment we strongly believe is best for both the short-term and the long-term future. As restaurants face the most profound changes and challenges in their existence, handing out ratings is not the best way to use our platform, and it’s not particularly useful. We believe removing ratings will also create a more inclusive publication and product. Read more about this update on theinfatuation.com

I’m a huge fan of the Infatuation and I have some ideas for how to improve the mobile app. I think allowing users to create custom folders to categorize the restaurants they put on their hit list would be a great addition. For example, there are restaurants that I’ve been to on my hit list and ones that I haven’t been to, I’d like to be able to separate them into two folders: one for those I’ve been to and want to keep in my back pocket and another for ones I haven’t been to yet and want to try. So yeah customizable folders for the hit list could be nice. Also on the website there’s a way to search by price, perfect for, and cuisine type. There are no ways to refine your search on the app so maybe that could be something to improve

This is definitely something that we've thought about and would like to introduce soon! Thanks for the ideas and keep 'em coming!
Follow on of my review below: glad you added the guides section, that’s much better. But the reviews browsing is still a big mess. Why can’t I see the most recent reviews? Similar to being able to see the most recent guides? That’s still the primary use of the app for me. It’s still cumbersome to go through the filter process and organize NYC by recent reviews, and the output is even more inaccurate. Pretty sure Morandi was not the 2nd most recent review. Hope you guys keep working on this. Cheers
I’m a longtime fan of Infatuation, love their work. But this new app is a major regression. As a daily user, my favorite use was to open the app and automatically see the newest published reviews and guides for the whole city (NYC). The app felt current and interesting every day. Not it’s cumbersome and awkward. I have to change the location in the filter section to all-NYC, request for “most recent” - and then the output is a hodge podge of added restaurants that are UNreviewed, plus plenty of errors with restos that were reviewed long ago. Plus, the lists/guides are hard to see, and the search function is a hot mess. What is the purpose of the new default setting? To see the same restaurants in my neighborhood every day? It’s only valuable for traveling. For daily users, this is all much worse. Infatuation crew is really smart, thoughtful and innovative - I’m sure you’ll fix these problems. Look forward to it.

Thanks for being such a longtime fan and we really appreciate the constructive feedback. We're hard at work on a series of updates to address everything you mentioned that will roll out over the coming weeks. We appreciate you bearing with us!
I am an impatient millennial using your app. When I add listings to my hit list the visual confirmation pop up that confirms it’s been added hangs on my screen for as much time as it would take me to send a fax to my grandmother (remember those?also yes I communicate with my grandmother via fax). I typically come into the app to quickly build out my hit list based on your new listings , and your stifling the speed of my thumbs with the 4 second visual screen locking check box which acknowledges my addition. Send help. Or a fix, or maybe a fax... thanks.
