How do the ratings work?
Great question! Each user sees unique ratings depending on the people they chose to follow. The beauty of TidBit is that you see ratings and reviews by those people whose taste you trust so say goodbye to overwhelming and generic reviews that don’t match your taste! What’s more, in TidBit ratings are done by the dish, so users individually rate the dishes they tried and that in turn creates an average rating of that restaurant.
How does the rating process work?
Its so simple it takes less than a minute to rate what you ate! Simply search for the restaurant you want to review, tap the rate button, select the dishes you tried, click next and a window will display the selected dishes and now you simply slide your finger on a 1-10 scale and give the dish your desired rating. Then you rate the service and the ambience on a 1-3 scale. Followed by a picture (optional) and comments (optional). Once you are done, your review will pop up in the TidFeed of all your followers (unless you chose not to share on the TidFeed and then your followers will only see your rating if they go to your profile).
Can you only rate food?
No, although higher attention is given to the food rating, users also rate the ambience and service. That way you can get a more transparent insight into your friends’ dining experiences. For example, the service might have been mediocre but the food might have been amazing and that should be reflected separately. So if service and ambience are something you are interested in when trying to find the next great meal then you can take your friends’ reviews of those aspects into account as well.
Is the app only useful for rating?
Not at all! Our team really worked hard to create the most enjoyable app that blends in the restaurant rating aspect with more social and interactive functions. You can use TidBit to see where your friends are eating (TidFeed), to add restaurants to your wishlist, to build your own personal list of restaurants you have been to (Say goodbye to writing these on your phone notes and say hello to your TidProfile), you can even use TidBit to invite friends out to eat and chat through the app.
What if I don’t have many foodie friends?
No worries, we’ve got you covered. The explore section will always feature local foodies that you can follow while you build your own foodie network! TidBit also works perfectly as your own personal restaurant diary so you never forget what and where you ate.
I love taking pictures of food can I do that in TidBit?
Why yes you can! When you are doing your rating you can add pictures and make them part of your review. All your followers will be able to check out your pictures in the TidFeed and in that particular restaurants page.
What if I want to discover a restaurant my friends haven’t been to?
We know sometimes us foodies want to brag about discovering new places and then recommend them to our friends, that is why we have developed an explore section and an advance restaurant filter system. In the explore you can search for more specific restaurants you have in my mind or see restaurants that are being featured by TidBit. In the filter section you can adjust the categories to find the perfect match by being able to chose: neighborhood, cuisine, rating, price. Want to find a cheap Italian restaurant in Soho? No worries, TidBit’s got you covered!
