Ness – Restaurant Recommendations, an app that recommends restaurants based on what you like, what you are in the mood for, and where you are located, has been updated with a redesigned interface. The app features recommendation cards that give an idea about restaurants you may wish to visit, including a photo and explanation of why you may like it.
“We’re dedicated to building a service that is deeply personal and intuitive. Different people have different tastes, so Ness makes unique recommendations for each customer – and each situation – rather than providing the same results for everyone in every situation,” said CEO and co-founder Corey Reese in a statement. “With Ness 2.0, we’ve built a product that anticipates what you’re looking for, then offers the fastest and easiest way to find restaurants tailored to your tastes. Instead of relying on reviews from strangers, Ness is all about you.”
