    Interesting concept, very limited right now and crazy outdated. They list restaurants that have literally been closed for several years. I could understand for a new closing, even within 6 months....but they list one that has been closed for over 3 years! If you are in an unfamiliar area this thing would send you on wild goose chases after businesses that no longer operate. The draw your route feature is cool but with such outdated results it's just a toy to play with for a few minutes then delete. Reviews in the app store show that many have the issue with badly outdated results......it's a shame.
