Here to offer consumers personalized food suggestions and eatery recommendations is the Spot travel app, that relies on opinions curated from friends and experts in the field, rather than on strangers. The service allows foodies searching for a reliable recommendation to find one from sources they truly value and trust, rather than anonymous reviews and patrons.

Most restaurant reviewing apps rely on ratings written in by strangers that are often times anonymous and potentially unreliable sources of an accurate description of what the food was like. The Spot app creates a sense of trust between the merit of the recommendations by creating a community of reviewers connected through friendship or expertise. This allows the suggestions to be regarded as reliable, increasing the perception of the restaurant review.
