Ratings and Reviews
Slow, odd, and impersonal
Really expected more from Phaidon.
Programming: Slow, slow, slow ... and more slow. Click on "near me" and I am presented with a map of North America. Really? That is the closest you can get using location-based services? I'm in New York and you show me a entire continent?
Content: It really doesn't live up to what you imagine it will be. Knowing some chefs, I find it fun to know where they eat. But the only recommendations near me in restaurant rich Westchester County are one pizza joint, Pain Quotidian and Blue Hill at Stone Barns? That is painfully thin. No personal isnight as to why the chef's recommended the restaurant, the kind of color that might start to make up for the thin, and sometimes bizzare recommendations.
I use this both on my iPhone and iPad, and the map function on both causes the app to crash. Can't use one of the best features built in to the app.
This guide doesn't add much more to other restaurant reviews written about these restaurants. It also doesn't describe the meals in many cases or why the chefs made these choices. I wouldn't bother buying it and I won't be consulting it for advice.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
