    As a frequent traveler who has been lucky enough to strike up conversation with locals- this assured a 100% chance.


    I’d suggest a way to know if a fellow blikke user was in the same place as me. If they approve it’d be fun to meet up.

    I’ve been able to recommend great local places. I do it for free as it’s my pleasure- but it’s nice to have the option to monetize it if you’d like.

  • Pros: 

    1) quick way to find new restaurants in NYC that I would've never found otherwise anywhere else on the web

    2) easy to use


    only offers 9 cuisine type. looking forward to blikkee expanding to offer other options in the future

    I like the option of being able to earn money for my recommendations

Hey makers! What made you want to create this app and how does it differ from similar apps out there?
Jeffrey DobinHunter@athleteadvocate · AI powered intro's to locals
@jacqvon - great question! What started as a pay-it-forward project to connect people in our network for advice, quickly morphed into a community of friends (and friends of friends) recommending their favorite local restaurants. Our integration with Venmo makes us unique. Locals help others for free but people traveling for work and vacation are tipping 💰for advice. You can offer restaurant recommendations on Blikkee and earn tips that would've otherwise gone to a hotel concierge! We 💙 local culture and hate tourist traps. If you feel the same way, jump on Blikkee and give it a whirl. We'd love your feedback!

Not available in UK app store as it seems? Quite a down-vote on that... Otherwise - keep it up!

@athleteadvocate indeed!😄 I'm guessing you're not keeping it US-only? If so, let me know - maybe there's something we could discuss

Hey @vpiskunov, Didn't mean to ignore your question. Oops! We're 100% focused on the US market. However, it would be awesome to help locals in the UK and beyond (one day). Happy to chat off line 🤙 Please send over a note to jeffrey (at) blikkeedotcom.
