When Gvidi was released in Europe last year, this intelligent restaurant guide application for iOS garnered much critical acclaim and was nominated and even won some rather prestigious awards. Now that it has expanded to the US, this highly personalized guide for both iOS and Android, is set to be a major player in the food and drink and restaurant recommendation section of your app store. Gvidi uses advanced algorithm technology to find you a great place to eat by matching your favorite food criteria with the eating places around you. It strips away all the erroneous noise of the Internet to find you a restaurant this fits in best with what you are looking for. Gvidi turns social and interactive too by encouraging the user to add reviews and photos - not to mention sharing your knowledge through your favorite social network.
 
Gvidi is a leading international personalized restaurant guide that has recently expanded to the US. It uses what is known as advanced algorithms to find the perfect restaurant to suit your tastebuds as well as your appetite. And,  at a time when the explosion of data around us is making our lives more complex, Gvidi is making finding a place to eat simple. This free iPhone and Android app features a massive directory of bar, restaurant and cafe locations as well as photos and reviews which have been made more relevant by the app's personalized scoring system. Based on your searching, location, interests and social network  profiles, Gvidi recommends the best restaurants that fit your taste. Every recommended restaurant is given a percentage score based on how it fits in with your personal profile. It can be filtered across multiple criteria including whether a place has WiFi and  non-smoking areas and what are its opening hours. The secret to Gvidi's great recommendations is its sophisticated collaborative filtering algorithms that processes data about  your habits and interests and is gathered from a wide range of open sources such as Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare. As a result, the app points out how much a user will like a cafe or restaurant nearby and will suggest the highest ranked places first. User feedback from ratings and connecting through social networks ensures these personalized recommendations get smarter as you search. The Gvidi app features a clean, glossy modern design that lets you easily get recommendations by type of cuisine or location. All recommendations are easily viewed by map and in a detailed list. Give ratings to restaurants and cafes you have been to before and connect Gvidi to your social media accounts in order to get the most accurate personalized recommendations. It goes without saying that active travellers and big city inhabitants would love this app especially when it launches deals and table booking as promised by the developers in its description on the App Store.
 
The guys behind Gvidi have done their research well. They have put together this very clever restaurant recommendation app that gives the user just about all they need to find a great place to eat. Thankfully, the developers have kept the app simple with maps, reviews and recommendations - and, to me, that's all you really need in a restaurant guide. However, Gvidi chucks in another major bonus with its advanced algorithms that filter the results just the way you want them. Because of this, despite there being a feast of great food guide apps available, Gvidi has a pretty good chance of taking off and becoming THE best free restaurant guide in the US.
