Cool idea, but it needs some work

Just downloaded HowUDish, and it’s a pretty neat concept! Tinder for dieting! But it’s also a little buggy, and the interface is super busy. It doesn’t feel like an app I could use for very long before needing to look away. Also, I wish it would stick to one concept. It seems like this app is trying to do too much at once. Is it a social platform? Is it kinda like Instagram? This app has too many features and they make it feel confusing, like a bar that has both D&D nights and folk music.

Great app

This is a great app and I definitely will continue to use it over time. While food is the center of our daily lives, it is important for me to stay on track and eating out has definitely been a factor in me gaining weight. I am definitely appreciative of the nutrition facts and being able to select the type of diet you want. It allows many people to be able to use this. Saves a lot of time from me going through the whole menu and picking out the healthy options. I like that there is a community as well and you can post recipes . My only complaint is that it's selective to a lot of fast dining restaurants.

Great concept, need to add restaurants

It’s a great concept that could be useful for health enthusiasts. I know the healthy eating food scene well, and to be of use, need to vet better restaurant and cafe options, and boutiques that specialize in healthy foods - particularly gluten free since it is a big issue now. For instance, in LA, add: Erewhon, Moon Juice, Superba, Little Prince, Earth Bar, M, best sushi places w brown rice, Plant - Matthew Kinney, etc. Bon chance!

Promising heathy-food app

I love the overall concept of the app. I work downtown and often need to find something healthy to eat on my lunch break. The app pulled several options that were near but not within walking distance. For some reason, none of the restaurants that I can walk to were pulled. It did surprise me with local spots that I had not yet heard of/visited yet which was a pretty cool feature. I would like to see the app pull a menu and make a unique meal that isn’t on the menu but fits our specific health goals. That will take some time but would make the app even better! I do feel that making the recipes a free part of the app would make me use it more often. I use Pinterest for healthy recipes currently but it has become cluttered whereas this app is more organized. Once my city is using the app more often it will definitely help with the food options. Also, I commented on some of the posts made by other people and never got a response. I’m not sure if they weren’t notified or if they just didn’t respond. Not a big deal but something I noticed.

Eat healthy and find new restaurants

This is a great app for discovering new restaurants as well as new dishes in restaurants you already go to. Having the nutritional data at your fingertips is so helpful - especially in compatibility with the health program I am on. It was easy to find lean and green meals at restaurants near me. The app is easy to maneuver, lets you save favorite dishes, gives all the nutritional information, easy to get directions to the restaurants, and you can select food types: i.e. vegetarian, low carb, low fat From breakfast to lunch to dinner, you’re covered and don’t have to question what to order. I checked out restaurants before going with friends so I knew my options ahead. I also upgraded to Premium for the full experience...worth it!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Awesome Idea

Took only 3 minutes to design my app. Notification makes it hard to cheat on lunch breaks. Always reminding you what is healthy and where to go to get it! Like other apps but without bias! The app needs more choices and real pictures.

Soooo helpful !!

I really love the tinder feel and how smooth the app is. You get to choose your diet and it helps you to find food in the areas you want that fit that diet. It’s made choosing what to eat and where to go waaayyy easier. When you first start using the app it’s a little difficult to maneuver but with some more time you get the hang of it.

Unique, but room for improvement

This app is definitely unlike any other fitness or dieting apps I have used. I appreciate that it tries to personalize my feed based on location and ‘diet’ (low carb, gluten free, vegan, etc). You can set your distance up to within 20 miles, and since I live in New York City, that leaves me with an overwhelming amount of meals/options to ‘swipe’ through. The design of the app is sleek and nearly flawless. It has never frozen or unexpectedly quit on me, which would be frustrating. I think that with a few small improvements, this app could be revolutionary. For one, implementing a ‘food diary’ feature that would allow me to record what I’ve eaten all day, including meals from restaurants AND manual entries. It has been widely proven that, at least for weight loss, a food journal is one of the most effective things you can do. Through swiping, I only found one ‘meal’ that has intrigued me. It’s a little disheartening to see the same boring vegetable side dishes over and over again. For example, I have gotten the ‘potato salad’ option from various different places, even though I have swiped left every time. It seems that a lot of the ‘meals’ that I am swiping through are not full meals, but components of a bigger meal. Lastly, and probably most importantly, I wish that I could refine my search based on amount of sugar. I do not eat sugar or flour, so it was hard to find food that matched my diet. Although, I understand that everyone has a different diet, and since this app is still new, it is understandable that they don’t yet have that feature. I did sign up for the premium membership, but other than seeing a ‘cheat meal,’ I don’t think the benefits justify the monthly cost. I think it is so important to recognize the plethora of diets that people have, and I love that this app is open to catering for all. I can’t wait to see more improvements!

Eating Out Just Got Easier!

Dieting is hard work and takes a great deal of will power and effort for most of us, but one of the worst experiences tends to be dining out. We can never be sure if there’s more than ‘safe salad’ on the menu. If we’re eating alone that might be all right, but if we happen to be eating with friends or family, or maybe trying out a new restaurant that situation can be nightmarish, if only for us. Most dieters stick to salads and known “diet foods” like yogurt, cottage cheese, or whatever has a low calorie count on the menu in restaurants we frequent. What if we could just pull out our iPhones, click a button, make a few swipes, and find restaurants in our location or near by that meet our dietary needs? Would dieters like us buy that app? Well, I would and here’s why. HowUdish: Dieting & Nutrition app by Felix Culpa Publishing, LLC is an iPhone app that assists with dieting regiments, but not the way we’d think. It doesn’t help plan a menu, make us weigh in, provide prepared foods, or help us make a grocery list, but what it does do and do well is remind us of our weight goals and allow for entering weight loss, provides a rich a community of dieters (that includes chat and access to “dishers” --- a nice feature that is reminiscent of other apps ‘follow me’ features --- and recipes), searches, and helps us plan what we can eat when we dine out --- one of the most difficult parts of any dieting regiment and when we are most likely to cheat on our diets. The ability to marry a dieting app with community presents a major plus. Not only does it provide assistance with dining out, but also the dieting community helps with recipes of their own and reviews of their restaurant experiences. Along with those fantastic features, HowUdish offers a unique app that is easy to use and adjust. Set up is a breeze. It starts out pretty much the same as most apps, but then asks for specific dietary and weight goal information. Screen instructions are pretty clear and easy to follow, along with buttons and arrows that point the way. HowUdish covers the most common dietary needs, but is not specific to any one diet type (e.g., Atkins or Weight Watchers); rather, it looks at how we eat – vegetarian, vegan, balanced, low carb, high protein, low calorie, low fat, high fiber, and gluten free, and of these up to 3 can be selected. No more “insta-salads” when we don’t want them or eating the same meals in frequented restaurants. HowUdish has two modes: free and paid subscription. In free mode users can save up to 10 selections from restaurant meals, which will not expire, 10 swipes (these can be like/right or don’t want/left), and expand their searches up to 25 miles from their location. To save new selections, however, dieters will have to delete some saved menu items or purchase the subscription. If selections are not saved they will expire in about 24 hours. Another somewhat annoying feature in the free app is popup ads; there aren’t a lot of these, but they seem to popup at inconvenient times and a user could ‘accidently’ click on one. Besides the mentioned shortcomings, the free app also does not allow for searching or saving recipes. All in all, however, the free app can and will help dieters who don’t mind having to reset their favorite dishes in restaurants around their location. On the other hand, Dieters can subscribe in one of two ways: $3.99/mo. or $39.99/yr. I would say the yearly rate is the better deal. We get all the features of the free version, plus unlimited saves and swipes, access to save recipes, search dishes and restaurants, cheat mode (least worst cheat diet options), and the Oops! button to go backwards if you swipe left. The subscription is ad free and provides a 24-notice of renewal. While HowUdish is a superb app for its purposes, but not without a few drawbacks that include no calorie count (or counter), faulty diet selections (often the continue button fails if you choose 3 diet want/needs and it would great if this feature could be set up to inform the user which diets cannot/should not be chosen together; for example, a user cannot choose high protein, low carb, and balanced together), and in the premium version no ability to select meal type (breakfast, lunch, dinner, no certain ingredients, etc.; this is another function that would make a great addition). Overall, the HowUdish app is pretty amazing and I’m sure in time it will get even better. I found the app functional and noteworthy and, while the free version can assist dieters by in a pinch, I would recommend the paid subscription for a full experience of HowUdish with all of its features.

Makes finding “safe” meals easy

For medical reasons I have to follow a strict gluten-free diet. Eating out is a challenge, even in health conscious Bay Area. This app not only gives me dozens of healthy options, but also gives me ideas for new places to try. The restaurant choices seem to be limited right now but as more people discover and use the app it will only get better. Highly recommended!

Great for the Back Pocket

I’ve been using this app for awhile now, and it definitely takes the guess work out of trying to eat to fit your diet. I like to eat out but hate trying to configure nutrition ... this app does it for me. I especially like the community feature where you can talk to others about what’s good in the area.

Social Eating Is Back!

This app is very competitive within an already competitive niche filled with brand names and others. It offers menu and recipe guidance, community engagement, nutritionist-led advice and more. Which is what people seeking to lose weight are looking for. So far, so good. But for me, the game-changer is the local restaurant finder. One of the most common problems, if you’re trying to make wise food choices, is not being able to enjoy going out to eat with your friends or co-workers. A group of people typically chooses where to dine in a lightning round, and if you’re on diet you either have to put up with it or “be the one” who slows everything down by asking what’s on the menu. In other words, just what every person concerned with their appearance dreads. But with this app, you can have almost instant access to local restaurants and their menus. And instead of having to scan an entire (often slow-loading) menu in a heartbeat, the app gives you one sample dish at a time with its nutritional value. If you don’t like that dish, you can swipe and another one comes up immediately. These fast-loading swipes allow you to keep up the crowd and at least appear to be spontaneous (even if you’re doing your own personal lightning round). You can even shout out restaurants that may have been overlooked. I know from my own weight journey that “spontaneity” is often equated with “impulsive gratification,” which is the bane of dieters. But though they share some characteristics, they aren’t the same. And being able to share fun experiences with friends and colleagues - without bringing my baggage into it - is what makes this app so unique. Thanks!

Simple & Effective

This app so far is pretty useful! The thing I like the most about it is the fact that it brings photos of food right to your face in a tinder-swipe style environment. More often than not, I’ll be hungry, but all of the ideas in my head feel pretty “meh.” With the photos, store info, hours, etc being put right in front of you, it stimulates a different part of my brain taking in visual information and my 1st-world-problem of not knowing what to eat is made a little easier. After selecting vegan/vegetarian filters, the “feed” portion of the app quickly filled up with blog-like content pertaining to my filters. This was cool, but everybody seems to be in San Francisco. If the feed portion was filled with blog-like content from users in my local area, that would be epic! Not only would it make the app experience much more real world, but it would provide a social media networking opportunity. Who knows, maybe you could plan breakfast/lunch/dinner meet ups with users you enjoy seeing the content of! I did have one tech related issue early on and that was selecting my birthday when initially signing up. For some odd reason, I wasn’t able to choose the month before the day or year. I had to put in the year first, and then the day, and then the month. This all could’ve been an issue on my end as well, as my iPhone isn’t the latest model. I’m giving this product 5 stars because of the ease of access, simplicity, and functionality of this application. I’d found dishes in my local area that I didn’t even know existed (and I’m pretty keen on finding all my good veggie spots).

Love this app! Healthy eating made easy.

If I could sum up this app into a phrase it would be tinder for food! So close to a 5/5 rating from me (but I’m picky) so here is my honest review: Pros: Super user friendly and fun layout. You can select foods you want to see based on special dietary requirements (vegan, gluten free, etc). Discussion area provides great ideas for new and awesome looking recipes. Overall focus on healthy food. Includes beverages and baked goods for lots of recipe alternatives to otherwise unhealthy foods. Cons: I’m not sure if the app is supposed to be help me with weight loss or with dietary needs. There is an area to track weight loss, but it would be nice if the app where people could just come together over healthy food. It’s hard to tell which foods fall into which dietary need. When a food pops up it would be nice for it to flag itself as “gluten free” especially since a lot of foods can overlap. For example, a salad could be low carb but not necessarily gluten free and you wouldn't know which on first glance. Pictures from the actual restaurant would really enhance the app. Would love more nutrition info. I’m on a low sodium diet and seeing those extra details would help a lot. Overall, the app is great and I assume it will only include more info as it grows. I will keep a close eye on the updates. Social media really needs a platform for food like this!

Great app. Helps with diet and social networking!

I’ve been using this app for over a week and have really enjoyed it. I’ve described it to friends as the “Swiss army knife” of social media apps. There’s something for everyone. You can find recipes, restaurants, make posts, track your diet, follow accounts, and more. At its base, it is useful for inspiring you to stay on your diet and try new foods that match your current diet. I had fun swiping through dishes in my area, and even trying out a few recipes myself! This is a great feature of the app, though it requires premium membership. Most, if not all, dishes you see have a recipe that can be accessed by premium members. So whether you want to stick to your diet at home or on-the-go, HowUdish can be helpful. I also like the post sharing feature. I have an Instagram account with over 4000 followers, where I regularly share food pictures, and found that with just 15 followers on HowUdish, I was getting more engagement than on Instagram (in terms of comments, of course, not likes)! So the community and networking aspect of the app is definitely a huge plus. I hesitated to put 4 stars instead of 5, because of a couple downsides I spotted. These are mostly a result of the nascent nature of the app, so I stuck with 5 stars, but I’ll mention these downsides here. I found the use of stock photos to represent dishes to be a downside. I don’t like to read much when I use social media, and found it bizarre to see the same images pop up on multiple occasions, representing different dishes from different restaurants. I understand though, that there’s no way around that until more people start uploading pictures. The good news is that this will improve as more people use the app and upload pictures! Also, the downside of the “Swiss army knife” nature of the app, is that it can be a bit confusing to manoeuvre. While the interface is nice, the numerous features could be integrated more intuitively.. for example, whenever I wanted to make a post of my own, I found myself tapping on four or five buttons before finding the place where I could do so. Overall, I would definitely recommend this app!

Really handy for eating out!

So glad there is an app that helps me sort local restaurant options with my dietary needs. It makes it easy and convenient. You might not think you need another app, but this one is worth it!

Decent diet app

As far as being a source for good options on the menu to fit your desired food intake, it’s great. However, it isn’t very good for people who live in small towns. My town has 300 people and I was only able to see food choices from a town 15 minutes away even though there are quite a few restaurants between here and there. It would be nice to also actually have pictures of the food itself instead of generic pictures. Visual presentation certainly does change my thought process on whether I’m ordering food or not (I don’t wanna get something looking like a McDonald’s hamburger). It would also be nice to have an option to get the recipes for posts users submit. They look really good! Just no idea how to get to the end result. However, for being in the starter phase, it’s better than some other apps I’ve looked into.

Something new

This is a one of a kind dieting app. When you want to eat out on a diet this app can help you make an informed decision before you even leave the house. It has diet information about the menus of restaurants in your area and it can even filter those options based on your particular dietary needs. I’m already hooked.

Amazing app!

This app is extremely clever because it assists you with making a meal choice based on your diet, location, and whether you’re training to lose, gain or maintain your weight. As we all know it’s difficult to make food choices, especially when you live somewhere where there’s so many! Looking forward to sharing with my friends to enhance the list on things to try, places to visit/no visit etc. Also great for businesses to get more buzz about their dishes!

Excellent App for Healthy Lifestyle

This app is excellent. I like how all meals are broken down in nutritional values so i can easily see what fits in my daily meal plan. I also like the option that allows me to choose meals based on location proximity. The social part of the app is also very motivating as i constantly get motivated by other people who are following various diets. I have couple of suggestions in order to make the app perfect: at the beginning of the day, i would like to get a notification as what my total protein, carb, calorie intake should be based on the chosen diet plan. Also most of the photos are not actual photos from the meals. If this can be updated, everything will be perfect! Nonetheless, i will remain a user of HowUdish as there is nothing more important than carrying for my own health and wellbeing (and this app helps me with that).

It’s time to dish up!

I found the HowUdish app to have unique functions from other food/health related apps. The instructions are given clearly on how to use the app once downloading it, making the interactions of taps/swipes/scrolls consistent. There is however a slight lag in the timing response of the app when loading new content. An accept I enjoyed was the layout of the homepage. It was professional, simple to use icons and logically organized. There was good quality in graphic resolution and visual design using enlarged photos of the featured dishes. I believe the app makes a good attempt to help it’s users reach their health goals by first selecting the type of diet you would like to follow. For the users that want to drop weight, I think there should be a weekly reminder to record weight and give users access to a “food journal” to document personal progress/goals. Same goes with those that want to bulk up. Another suggestion would have control on when you allow the “cheat mode” feature to be used. For example: you want to reward your self with one “cheat dish” on Friday. The app should allow you to lock out the remainder days from using the cheat mode. Further tips on strengthening the quality of the apps content: -Provide full serving sizes of the dishes listed, it was a little vague on what the nutritional facts were describing. Is the whole pizza 290 calories or is it just a slice of pizza? -on the restaurants’ profile page, the weekly hours of operation should be listed along with the physical address, website link and phone number. I realize this info is available to users in icon form but I would suggest having it written out as well. Maybe including a short summary on what type of cuisine the restaurant offers too. -I don’t understand the functionality of the “tips” button... I have yet to see anyone leave tips for the restaurants I searched. -allow users to tag a dish with trendy diet terms to differentiate them from other dishes. For example: a high fat dish with avocado on it might be considered a “Keto-friendly” dish. -provide a comment box under the “review” tab. This way users can write a brief statement on why they liked/disliked the restaurant. Also I would include more key words like: “dog-friendly” or “outdoor seating”, “cash only”, etc. -I didn’t notice a huge difference between the “saved” tab and the “recipes” tab. The recipes tab could be organized into personalized categories: diet, caloric intake, type of meal (breakfast,lunch,dinner). My favorite features: - I like that the menu is provided for each restaurant. Some did not have the complete menu but I liked that the pricing is included -I love that you can get specific recipes from dishes to recreate those dishes from home -on the premium membership I liked using the “swipe the wrong dish?” Tab. - cheat mode was also a fun option for the days your in the mood to treat yourself. Overall I will definitely continue to use this app, there are a lot of fun features and i start drooling just swiping through the photos. Yum yum!

Like Tinder, but for food!

This app is great finding nearby dishes that meet your dietary needs. It uses a swipe left/swipe right system so it reminds me of Tinder. You can quickly find dishes that are close, check nutritional information and more.

Don't bother....

Downloaded and deleted within an hour. Literally recommended asparagus as a meal for me. What? No thanks.

A nice food app

Every time I think of opening the app, I get super hungry because I know I’m going to see some pretty amazing (and healthy) dishes bailable from near by restaurants. I like how the dishes that I like get saved for me to review in their own separate tab within the app. It’s also great that you can even save the recipes in case you don’t want to eat out. The community tab is pretty nice to have because it gives you the ability to talk to other people who also want to eat healthy. There are a few things that would make this app even better. It would be nice if it had a daily/weekly planner. This would make it easier to decide what to eat each day all organized in one page. I think this would make traveling much easier knowing where to go and what to eat ahead of time. It would also be nice if it had an integrated map on the section where you look up restaurants. Sometimes seeing the different restaurants on a map may make choosing a dish a bit easier. I like the app a lot. It’s a good option to have instead of having to carry a bunch of recipe books for healthy eating.

Love this app!

This is an awesome app to find healthy recipes on the go and share with a community of food lovers like myself.

Tinder for Dining and Dieting

How u dish is a pretty awesome app for someone like me who sticks to a very specific diet lifestyle. Eating low carb while dining out is so much easier when you can scroll through the app and find local spots that cater to your specific needs. You can also browse by recipes and even save recipes for making at home later. The only con is that it looks like they're still adding restaurants. Hopefully as they become better known the options will increase. Definitely an awesome tool for anyone co Scopus aboit their food choices.

Dieting made easier

My husband likes to eat out but I have tried Paleo and am now on Atkins, so it is difficult for me to not to panic, especially so in our small town of home cooked, fried foods. HowUdish has already helped me locate great options that suit my carb allowance, so I won’t have to say no. How great is that? P.S. It is also great for out-of-town food terror. (I know most dieters know exactly what I mean!)

Healthy-ish Chef’s Thoughts

This app works great and seems to be pretty accurate when suggesting places to eat. Living in LA there are so many choices, but I’m able to narrow that down using the app since it shows me what’s in a 15mi radius. I’d suggest making sure the nutritional facts are all 100%, but other than that, great work! Excited to see what’s next.

Great app when eating out!

This app is great to search local restaurants that have your diet restrictions. I also like seeing the calorie count so I can add it my meal plan and make sure I am on track. The only thing I didn’t like were the photos... defiantly do not match what is served.

Got potential

This could become a very helpful app, but it needs more development. In particular it could you some learning capabilities (I like seafood but avoid pizza, and anyone looking over my shoulder as I used the app would’ve gathered that but the algorithm didn’t). One major issue that I expect will be solved over time is the over reliance on stock photos. If you’re going to use the same model as a dating app, then you must concede that it’s inappropriate for everyone on it to post pictures of fitness champs and claim they’re you. On the positive side, I was happy to find that the app knows just as much about menus in my suburban county as it does about those in the city where I work. Minor nit: I couldn’t log in via Facebook, but maybe that’s a good thing these days.

Unique angle to dining out

A clever app that frames eating out in a unique new light. In a smaller city where there is smaller scale in restaurants and users, a number of establishments are lacking. But this can change as more adopt this way of approaching what to eat where, within a nutritional lens. A minor issue was the swiping motion: success rate in swiping left or right but low, so resorted to the red X or green checkmark. Otherwise, interface is sleek and has a quick response overall.

Healthy Eating

First off, the concept of this app is absolutely fabulous. As an avid health & fitness nut, I constantly watch my diet. Some might say my diet is restrictive but its what fits my lifestyle! I love how this app provides specific plates versus restaurant suggestions based on type of food. It’s a great idea if you like to try new restaurants with plates that will fit your macros (or diet). There is an interactive option which yields recipes from the community. It’s a great way to implement new recipes into your cooking while also seeing that an average person can cook easy, healthy food! Not only do users provide recipes, but also little health and wellness tips! There is remarkable versatility in this app, all of which pertains to a healthy lifestyle. Recipes, weight recording, & MEALS! One thing that could be fixed is accurate photos of the meal suggestions. Overall, it is very user friendly and the concept is beneficial to people who care about the food they eat.

Find Restaurants & Recipes that Suit Your Lifestyle

All of us have a certain food preference for one reason or another - low carb, gluten free, vegan, etc. - in today’s world. Focus on diet and wellness is on the rise, and if you’re looking to stick to your diet plan - this app is super convenient. Nice platform and easy to use, allows you to enter all your personal information (gender, height, weight and weight goals) in addition to diet preference. Once you do that you are supplied with a list of different restaurants near you that are serving food within your diet preference AND you can also snag some of the recipes, which is nice. I dig this app so far and will continue to use alongside MyFitnessPal while keeping track of my calories and exercise. Seamless interface.

Great concept but need some work

Great pictures 5 stars this gives you an idea of what the dish is, even though it not from the restaurant it’s great. Diets offered 2 stars This is obviously bias but there are some limitations with the diets that limit my options. Adding in pescatarian, halal, kosher can help increase the interest to a bigger base. I understand it will take some time to get there. Restaurant/meals offered 2.5 stars After you start swiping the same type of restaurants show up with the same meals I was expecting more options in fact I know of more options in my area that could have been added. There should also be a way to search for a restaurant and see what they have Aesthetic of the app 5 stars App has a great look and feel to it. It’s easy to use and it makes it easy to pick good meals. They should have some sort of social media aspect added to it but it’s great looking app.

A must have for vegans/vegetarians!

There are a lot of things that are promising about this app, that with a few updates and perfecting the functionality, could prove to make this app a necessity for anyone who’s trying to be conscious in their diets. This app has so many different options for so many different lifestyles, and the customization is definitely a huge pro. For me personally, I am a vegetarian who is looking to lose a few pounds. This can be hard sometimes with such a busy lifestyle. I usually find myself eating pasta or other high carb, high calorie options when I go out to eat, and usually at the same restaurants. HowUDish makes it easier for me to turn around that bad habit, even with my heavy dietary restrictions. It was so simple and took under two minutes to customize my diet and start getting option suggestions. I love the “tinder-esque” swipe left swipe right layout that is provided for the meals. It makes it very simple to select and save the meals that I like and the meals that I don’t like. It even provides where I can get this meal locally, the nutrition of the content, and photos of the meal (although it would be REALLY cool if the photos were of the actual meals from the establishments listed). There’s a progress tab that allows me to track my weight loss progress, eliminating the need for the other apps that I used to use that were SOLELY for tracking calories and tracking weight loss. The only issue I had was that once I swiped that I didn’t like a food option, it continued to pop up on my feed as an option. Sometimes, dishes would pop up two or three times in a row. I’d love to see more different and more “out of the box” vegetarian options, and less of the same dishes popping up in my feed. Overall though, this app is awesome. Even for the times when we can’t decide what we want to eat or where we want to eat out, I’ll whip out this app and maybe even find some new dishes and new restaurants to try out! I can’t wait to see what the updates bring to this app, HowUDish is something to be excited about!

Food Freedom

Being on a diet of maintaining a certain lifestyle can make eating out feel like cheating or can derail all your hard work. This app changes all that! I felt like this app helped me stay in control while enjoying a bite away from home. The community aspect was great! Highly recommend for anyone who cares about what they eat!

Get this app!!

This is an app I was hoping would come out one day--and voila! Here it is! Whether I've been focusing on adding particular foods or excluding others, there are times it is it SO challenging to come up with ideas for what/where to eat. This app has all of the dietary options I've gone through in the past, which is fabulous--and it can only get better from here! The social aspect within the app is really great to bounce ideas off others and find what's working well for them. The developer is also on the feed getting feedback and gathering ideas for future tweaks and additions, so I'm very impressed with that. I'm excited to be able to add actual food photos from locations! I'm especially looking forward to being able to add restaurant and dish suggestions to the app, and to search on a map (on my way home, running errands, etc.) instead of searching by dish first. Definitely recommend this app!!

A dietitian’s perspective

HowUDish is a unique app that helps you find dishes that fit with your diet and lifestyle. I enjoy the notification reminders that suggest different dishes for you to try. Since this app is new, dishes are limited. I was unable to find dishes for a gluten free and high protein diet in my area. I was only able to select a balanced diet. The pictures shown do not look like the ones from the restaurants, so it would be nice to see actual pictures. Also, I’m unsure how accurate or where the nutrition info is coming from. Overall, this app is a great tool to use for someone who is traveling or starting a new diet and trying to find places to eat. I think with some adjustments and additions this app will be very helpful for many people.

Making Dieting More Fun!

Whether I run out of time to cook or just want someone else’s kitchen to get messy, eating out tends to happen more than it should. With help from HowUDish, it is now significantly easier for me to find local dishes that meet my diet criteria. As a bonus, it introduces me to interesting recipes and new restaurants. The social feed from other users of the app is fun to read if I’m waiting for takeout or eating solo. I’m trying not to use cheat mode very often but it’s great that I can! Really the only thing I might change is the photo accuracy - while the pictures are gorgeous, they don’t always match the dish exactly. Overall a great tool for a really diverse audience, and I’m looking forward to using it even more often when I travel. Keep up the great work!

Considers vegans and vegetarians!!

After trying out a couple of diet and nutrition apps, I must say, HowUdish come out tops. The fact that vegans and vegetarians are considered in the app really amazes me. Since we seem to be minority, only few apps consider us when a general app is developed. So far so good, I have been able to set and monitor my meals and nutrition goals. I know what to eat, when to eat a particular diet, and what to avoid. I can also save my favourite meals for next time. If you will like to keep your diet on track, HowUdish is just the perfect app you need.

App has lots of potential - GlutenFreeGal

This app has the starting of something really great. It has the ability, or will soon, to find all the restaurants in your area that fit your specific diet, ie: low cal, gluten free, etc. Right now all the pictures that come up to show a specific food item are stock photos and are not actually from the restaurant you are looking up, they are general photos that the algorithm has found. I found this to be a problem personally because I can only guess what my meal might look like, not to mention, the same photos come up time after time and gets a little boring. Though people are invited to upload their own photos, so I am assuming that when enough photos come through, they might take place for the stock ones. Also, even though restaurants come up showing they have gluten free food items, there is no particular safety attached to that and to someone with celiac disease like myself, means the food is gluten friendly not gluten free most likely. But it does give me a better idea of gluten free items restaurants offer so from there I can always call and check up to see how safe the actual restaurant is. And as of yet, it is not a complete compilation of restaurants in your area but I’m sure in time that will change as more are added. I do think it’s convenient having a basic idea of the nutrition scale attached to each item, but again, this isn’t for that specific recipe, it is a generality based on a recipe the algorithm found, I believe. So, the nutrition information might not be as precise as it looks and should be taken with a grain of salt. Overall the idea is great but I think the app has some work to do in order for it to really take off. I will check back with the app at a later time and see how it has evolved.

A Dish & Restaurant for Every Preference

I’m not on a super strict diet but I often have really specific cravings. Sometimes all I want is a plate full of perfectly cooked veggies. Sometimes I want a more normal balanced meal. HowUDish has shown me specific dishes based on those preferences at restaurants near me that I didn’t even know about! So yep this is good if you are on a specific diet and want to eat out, but it’s good for everyday use for those of us who just have a specific craving going on!
