[prMac.com] New York City - BiteHunter, the first real-time search engine for dining, has announced BiteHunter 1.1, its free mobile app for the iPhone. In March 2011, BiteHunter launched in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago. As a result of its early success, BiteHunter is expanding its reach while giving hungry consumers the latest deals and offers based on location.
The new mobile app caters to the nationwide audience and will give users the ability to view the offers via list or map and filter the offers via cuisine price, distance, type of deal and more. Restaurant information, related deals, reviews, photos and menus of each location are available with the simple push of a button. Users are also able to "share" deals, redeem deals and even reserve tables with the app. All information is in real-time, so depending on the time of day, different tabs, such as lunch specials or happy hours deals, will be shown.
"BiteHunter's mobile application will serve as the next stepping stone for the company's growth," said Gil Harel, CEO and co-founder of BiteHunter. "By making our service available to consumers nationwide through this app, we're quickly becoming the Kayak.com of the restaurant world. It's an exciting time for our company, as well as our users."
BiteHunter scavenges the web for all of the best deals and information that restaurants are promoting on sources such as Twitter, Facebook, blogs, websites, newsletters, daily deal sites and more and compiles it in one easy-to-navigate website. Its search capabilities allow consumers to find listings by delivery options, location, specific kinds of food and more.
"Our mission is to never leave consumers hungry and help them always save money," said Harel. "With this mobile app, our search engine is always at your service at no cost to the consumer."
