Start with a Photo
You asked, we delivered. You can now start the rating process by taking a photo and rating it later (once you’re home and happily stuffed!).
Forkly DishScore™ Shows you What’s Good at a Glance
We wanted a simple way to express an overall opinion of a dish/drink. To accomplish this we’ve added the Forkly DishScore, it takes into account 700k+ data points expressed as a numerical 1-10 score (you’ll see it next to dishes and on the food detail). It lets you know best bets at a glance and gives an idea of how popular a given dish is at an establishment. The score is derived from a variety of sources, including the number of dish or drink tastes and “wants” submitted by Forkly friends and users. So it’s not just your average rating!
Discover More with Enhanced Search Abilities
A redesigned Discover tab allows you to see nearby Wants and will show you places that are New to Me (places you haven’t been before). We’ve also added in filters on categories (eg. breakfast, coffee, dessert, etc.) and the ability to search for specific items (eg. Tacos, Pizza, and Pho). Additionally, Top Picks will show you highly recommended places.
