Foursquare is good at recommending a place to eat, but once you get there it can be difficult to digest all the tips and find that one dish that you should order. They’re getting better at this, but aren’t quite there. That’s where dish.fm comes in, weeding through the tips on Foursquare and reviews on Yelp to tell you what you should be eating.
Much like Foursquare’s “people talk about” section, Dish.fm uses sentiment analysis to weigh the positive tips versus the negative ones to find the most recommended dishes at a place. Users can also add their own likes and dislikes. It then searches Instagram for images of those dishes to show inside the app.
That’s, unfortunately, where the wheels fall off the wagon. I had to search long and hard to find a restaurant with enough photos to create the above screenshot. The vast majority are simply filled with gray boxes like the one you see for “bruschetta.” For an app that attempts to be photo-driven, it leaves a very empty feeling throughout the app.
