I really like the concept of this app, especially being able to filter by diet choices for local restaurants. I think the app would be much better in larger cities like LA or NYC, but in Charleston, SC the crowd sourced information seems a little off. As a Registered Dietitian, I am aware of the general idea of nutrients, so when choosing low-cal the fettuccine and burgers came up from two local restaurants that are not health forward. Again, once this information can be updated with more use, I would assume the accuracy would improve as well. I plan on continuing to use the app, because I do like the concept and am hopeful that the information will continue to improve. Additionally, I like the community aspect of the app, and would like to continue to use to connect with other "foodies".
This is a cool app. It is a unique concept and I will be using it a lot. It is also a very user-friendly app which I appreciate.
I really love this app. Whenever I go out to eat, I care about the calories and the type of food. This app allows me to choose the exact type of food I want, also making new friends with people who share the same hobby. You can create your own recipe and share it to other people. My advice: take time and explore the app. You find it more interesting than you expect!
This app seems to have a lot of potential. I like the idea of swiping through meals available in my area. My only recommendation is to be sure and only show people meals they will eat—I marked that I’m vegan but the first several meals I saw contained meat. As the app gets more people, I can envision it competing with bumble and tinder for dating and friend matching. It could be even better because who doesn’t like meeting someone who shares similar tastes in food? Cool app idea!
This app for sure fills the need of healthy and exciting foods in someone’s geographical region. It allows someone to get inspiration and ideas for their next meal and saves meals for the future and you can also connect with fellow foodies. Having used this app for about a month this summer I have trialed it in multiple locations and the app adjusts accordingly very quickly updating the matches to the nearest food spots! One thing I also like is each photo comes with a basic recipe for you to make at home if you’d like! A couple tweaks to the app are needed! One being that it switched from matching me with meals to matching me with people and flip flopped between the two without a formal toggle button. Secondly, being a licensed nutrition professional some of the nutrient analysis values were incorrect. I did the calculations on a few and some were spot on but a few were off so just make sure you double check your measurements if you are watching your calories or macros diligently :) overall, great app!
I eat out often because of my busy schedule. The HowUDish app is great for providing ideas when I am looking for something good and healthy to eat . I love how you can see the nutritional information before you decide to go! I usually follow a very low carb/ Keto diet and this app is perfect for that ! If your on the go and do not know where to grab healthy food this app is a great choice. I love how you can filter on various diets like low-cal, Gluten-free, vegan , vegetarian, high fiber , balanced, high protein , and low carb ! Your also able to view the menu , along with prices , and see trending dishes for that restaurant. One last thing - I love the swipe left / swipe right concept very kool and super easy/ friendly to use .
Meals are always the best time to enjoy talking with others, especially when you’re talking about food! 😂 The app is a fun way to combine finding new places to eat, explore while you travel, and just meet fun, engaging people who are looking for casual connections.
Without a doubt, food brings people together. This is a commonality across cultures, religions, race, gender, and sexuality. The HowUdish app certainly caters to our love of food, while also factoring in our desires to connect with people. HowUdish accommodates many kinds of relationships, whether you’re looking for a friend or for romance, or simply trying to find someone to share a good meal with. When I downloaded the app, I was a bit skeptical. I wasn’t in the mood to create an extensive profile, answer questions, explain things about myself. I remember doing this often when I was dating and using apps like OkCupid and Tindr. I was so relieved when it took me under 5 minutes to create my profile. I simply added a photo, and wrote a short bio. That was it! I got married a few months ago, and I primarily am looking for friends. We just moved to LA, and I figured it would be a good opportunity to meet people and explore my new city. I was right! Within a minute, I already had a message in response to my bio. Someone was welcoming me to the app, and asking me about my food interests. It was really exciting to have some social interaction, only minutes after I signed in. I had a pretty pleasant conversation. I also have been enjoying reading through the community posts. It reminds me of what I love most about Facebook; seeing little snippets of people’s lives. What I love most is that it’s ALL ABOUT FOOD! Everyone is posting their dinner on Instagram anyway; why not have a place where these specific moments are highlighted and given full attention? I haven’t met up with anyone yet (I always have a tendency to be shy when interacting with strangers) but I have been messaging with a few people in my neighborhood, and am excited to go try something local with someone local soon. The “swiping” component is a bit confusing. The combination of restaurants and people can be disorienting. Maybe it would be better if these were on different pages. In any case, I’m just getting used to this app. I’m saving restaurants and recipes, and chatting with people who seem cool. And what’s great is that this app isn’t JUST a dating app. I’m married, but I still get to participate in the culture of eating great food and meeting new people.
This is a great app for a health or an all around food fanatic. Additionally, it’s a unique way to not only explore new restaurants in your area, but also connect with others who may have a similar food palate to you. The app uses your dietary needs to formulate a list of dishes, recipes, and restaurants within your area so that you can eat out while feeling secure knowing that you don’t have to sacrifice your eating regiment. This app creates a community to connect, share, and create food experiences. It allows you to rate dining experiences, share tips and recipes, and meet others with similar lifestyles. Definitely recommend for someone new to the area looking for new connections and new places to eat!
Really like the direction of this app, bringing dating with dinner is definitely a wise concept. I really think this platform has the potential to take off and be the next big thing !
