DishPal brings an international perspective to users as people share their favorite food finds from around the globe.
The sophisticated, yet intuitive interface of DishPal makes this app both fun and easy to use. International technology news and culture website, TheNextWeb, calls DishPal a, "Beautifully designed app for iOS and Android."
DishPal allows users to share, comment on, and tag their dishes. The app integrates photo filters, as well as smart hashtags, to maximize its functionality, visual appeal and social networking capabilities.
