Synopsis of the App
CeliacFeed is an app that can be used to locate gluten-free restaurants and products and share gluten-free experiences and recommendations with others who have celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
- Interactive map highlights the nearest restaurant with gluten-free products and interfaces with GPS system on phone.
- Users can post photos with their recommendations and reviews of gluten-free restaurants.
- Only useful in larger cities as the database isn’t comprehensive (found only four listings in a large city’s 25-mile radius)
- Only had one or two reviews for each restaurant and no criteria for grades
I don't believe this app is helpful in identifying the many restaurants that can cater to gluten-free customers, nor were there many reviews that would encourage me go to the restaurants.
