Food Truck Locating Apps

The Toronto Food Trucks App Locates Nearby Eats

— October 23, 2013 — Tech
The Toronto Food Trucks app is a fantastic way to find exactly what food trucks are in the surrounding area, giving Toronto locals plenty of options for lunch and dinner.

One of the neatest features of the app is that it shows a radius of 'Trucks Near Me,' as well as how far away they are. On the app, food lovers can compile lists of their favorite food trucks, upload photos of their food and customize them with in-app filters and follow other foodies.

The app comes from blogTO, a site which provides guides on the best food, events, entertainment and shops in Toronto. As well as being integrated with blogTO accounts, the app has the ability for users to link their Facebook and Twitter accounts to it as well, which builds a strong community of food truck hunters.
