|What problem are you solving?||Calling a friend to get a recommendation – apart from being annoying – does not allow us to access all the information out there (your friend from LA might have great suggestions for NYC or London, but how could you know that?).|
Everyone has favorite restaurants, but each one of us saves them in a different way (business cards, Notes, Google Maps, excel, etc.) making it hard to share them quickly.
Tastd wants to become everyone’s repository of favorite restaurants and the only restaurants-discovery platform that works everywhere in the world.
|What is your solution?||Tastd is a free app that allows you to share your favorite restaurants with your friends and follow your friends to easily discover great restaurants all around the world. But that\’s not all: the more followers you have who trust your recommendations, the higher the chances to become an influential food Guru in your city.|
