Update adds a home screen with photo feed, more
New visual and social features are coming to the restaurant-browsing app Urbanspoon for iOS devices. Urbanspoon makes random selections of local restaurants, with user-chosen filters such as price, neighborhood and type of food served. The app then offers specific and user-updatable information for selected restaurants. Version 1.17 adds support for user-uploaded images of individual dishes, allowing users to view food shots from other customers.
The update features a new home screen with a launch pad for the customary shake feature, a Nearby feature to find restaurants by distance, a friends link, a restaurant browser keyed by location, and a running flow of recent picture uploads. A new tab for popular menu items now offers both photos and user reviews of individual dishes, adding to the content that were already available.
The app requires iOS 3.0 or newer and works on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. It is a free app on the iTunes App Store.
