  • Pros: 

    Social proof for restaurant/bars from an inherently trusted network makes a lot of sense. Great way to discover new places.

    Cons: 

    Need more people in my network to start using it!

    -- Facebook login is a bit limiting

    -- Would be nice to leverage phone contacts in addition to Facebook friends to expand network

    -- Search relevancy is a bit off

    Recommendations by people you trust

    Cons: 

    I think it's a great app. Just need more people to know about it. The more people that use it the better the app works for you.

Hello PH! Brad and I are the co-founders of Etch, a new restaurant and bar discovery app, which we've built lovingly in NYC. Do we really need another app for this? Perhaps not. But if you're like us and prefer to receive recommendations from friends and don't like to write public reviews on Yelp or Google then we think you'll really enjoy what we're building. Here are some key features that make Etch different. Keep track of all your favorite places: - Easily save your favorite places or ones you want to try - Leave notes so you can remember why you saved it - We use a simple rating system: 💛 👍 👎 (no ambiguous 5 star system) - Explore your saved places on a map, so you can easily see what’s nearby - Etch is a closed network, which means only your friends can see your activity Discover new places: - See places that your friends have saved, and what they love about them - You and friends can create lists together such as "Best Brunch in Brooklyn" - Use Etch when traveling to see where your friends have been in a new city Right now Etch is available on iOS only, but don’t worry, we’ll be working on an Android version as well. Hope you enjoy it - we’re here to answer any questions you have!
