Etch

Save restaurants you love and discover new ones from friends

5.0/5
About

Etch is an app to save your favorite spots and help you find new ones through the people you know and trust. It’s that simple.

Would you recommend this product?

Etch is a really great app that can really become a first point of contact in terms of finding new restaurants in an area; the only problem at the moment is that there aren't enough people using the app to really showcase its potential.

Pros:

Having the opportunity to read reviews from people you trust

Cons:

More people!!!

Thanks! Agreed - the more the merrier :)

When sifting through pages of recommendations takes longer than the meal you hope to enjoy - turn to your friends on Etch!

Pros:

Cuts Down Reccomendation Noise

Cons:

Need more friends to join the party!

It's information vs recommendations -- we prefer recommendations :) Thanks for the feedback!

-- 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

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!

Good news! Support for Google login is next up on our product enhancements. For phone contacts (non-FB friends), you can actually add anyone as a friend in Etch, even if you're not connected on FB. Just search for their name and anyone using the app will pop up. You can also connect your phone contacts in the app to send invites via SMS, email, etc. Thanks for the feedback!

As more and more of my friends download Etch it will become even better, especially when I'm traveling to a new city that someone on my friends' list has been to before - my friends' recommendations will really come in handy.

Pros:

User friendly and a quick way to keep track of restaurants I've been to and enjoyed, plus get an idea of my friends' faves.

Cons:

I need more friends to download the app!
