[prMac.com] New York, New York - Hold onto your tastebuds! Gvidi, a leading international personalized restaurant guide has expanded to the US. The iPhone and Android app features a massive directory of bar, restaurant, and cafe locations, photos, and reviews made really intelligent by Gvidi's personalized search score. Based on your searching, location, interests, and social profiles, Gvidi recommends the best food locations fitting your tastes. Every recommended restaurant is given a percentage score based on its fit to your individual preferences and can be filtered across multiple criteria (WiFi, working hours, playground, non-smoking, and more).
At a time when the explosion of data around us is making our lives more complex, Gvidi is making finding a place to eat simple by forecasting your personal sympathies for each food location nearby. The Gvidi app features a clean, glossy modern design that lets you easily get recommendations by type of cuisine or location and view them by map and in a detailed list.
"We have learned what consumers are really looking for and you see this in Gvidi, it's easy to use and gives people what they are looking for, the simple things like our map and recommendations," says Anton Baranchuk, CEO and Co-Founder of AlterGeo, Gvidi's developer, "Gvidi is the app that you will use, because it has what people are really looking for."
The secret to Gvidi's great recommendations is its sophisticated collaborative filtering algorithms. Gvidi processes data about habits and interests of users and their friends across a wide range of open sources such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and even more, and automatically creates a potential interest level for a certain type of food location. As a result, Gvidi points out how much (0% to 100%) each user will like each cafe or restaurant nearby, and will suggest the highest ranked places. User feedback from ratings and connecting through social networks ensures these personalized recommendations get smarter as you search.
