The FORK THAT Application is a restaurant search tool that lets you swipe through photos of restaurants around you. It uses geolocation to find these restaurants and an advanced search feature to allow you to find specific kinds of restaurants according to price, neighbourhood, rating and type of cuisine. It also allows you to make reservations and order for delivery through partnering mobile applications, to which you are redirected. No sales transactions take place directly on the Application. The Website is a landing page for downloading the app and joining the newsletter.
