MyEatinerary, an app for the budget-conscious eating customer

MyEatinerary is an app created by a team of Startup Weekend Cebu participants that helps you decide what and/or where to eat based on your budget.

Imagine, you're hungry and you realized you only have 50 pesos on your pocket. You wonder where can you eat for a budget of 50 pesos. (Can you relate to this?)

Enter....the MyEatinerary mobile app!

The MyEatinerary asks you. "What do you want to eat -- breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert?"

The next screen provides you a budget selection in pesos -- 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500 and 500plus.
You tap on one of them and voila! -- you are provided with the following:
  1. The name and address of the food establishment or restaurant/s that fit your budget together with meal/s recommended by featured food bloggers. 
  2. The actual price total of the recommended meal.
  3. The previous ratings for that particular restaurant and food establishment.
  4. An image of the map showing the location of the food establishment (could be a regular eatery or carinderia) once the "See Map" button is pressed.
  5. The name of the featured blogger and link to his or her blogsite.

Cool, right? But that's not all.

Once decided, one can press the "I'm Going" button and immediately the app will update your friends in Twitter and Facebook that you are on your way to the place.

And you can give a rating to the restaurant or food establishment also through the app as you finish your meal eliminating the need for filling up manually a form made of paper.

So the app can help the eating customers decide. It also will help increase exposure for the food establishment as well as provide them with feedback regarding their food and perhaps, their service.

Want to have a closer look of the app and test its features? Go to the MyEatinerary website. There is a test version there. Prices are for demo purposes only as the developers are fine-tuning it before making it available in the Market.
