One of the things I always try and do when traveling for work is eat at local restaurants. It gives me a more unique dining experience, a taste of the local culture and flavor, supports small businesses, and usually tastes pretty darn good. I will often use apps like Urban Spoon and Yelp to find highly rated local places, and recently I was introduced to another way to search. BiteHunter will help you find great places to eat, with an added bonus—you get real time access to more than 50,000 local dining deals around the country from companies like Groupon, LivingSocial, Yelp Deals, etc. So it’s tasty, and a great deal! Some key features:
- It will remember your log in information and password for the various deal companies, plus your credit card info, making it super easy to buy deals.
- You can view and redeem vouchers from within the app, so it doesn’t matter if you’re near a printer or not.
- Browse restaurants’ daily deals by cuisine or location.
- Very easy to use and set up.
The reviews are all pretty solid, which is something I always look for in an app. Plus it’s free! Right now it’s available for iOS, and they are working on releasing it for Android in the future, hopefully soon. I’ve been using BiteHunter at home for a few weeks, and it’s helped me find some new places to eat and some great deals. I look forward to using it on the road once I’m traveling for work again!
Readers, have you seen any new, cool apps that are great for travel?
