Introducing the Updated Version of Food Gal’s Bay Area Dining App & A Giveaway

Introducing my new, improved app.

Drum roll, please.

Just as I am my own person, I’m also my own app now.

If you remember back to February, I proudly launched my “Food Gal’s Ultimate Guide to Bay Area Dining” for iPhones.

Back then, it was under the umbrella of the new venture, the “Know What” network of apps for favorite bars, food, hikes, museums and more. So, you had to buy the “Know What Essentials”  app first, before you could add on more specific modules, such as my own.

Now, with the blessing and help of the team behind Escape Apps, which created the “Know What” network, you can bypass that step and just buy my app alone for $1.99.

My app has been updated to  feature more than 75 restaurants, bakeries and wine bars to check out in the Bay Area — from the tony to the hole-in-the-wall.

Each recommendation features a detailed review, notes on what to order, and mouth-watering photos.  The app is GPS-enabled, with one-touch dialing and turn-by-turn directions. Also included is other vital information such as Web sites, addresses and business hours.

Pinpoint a great place to eat easily on the map.

How’s that for your money’s worth?

What’s more, the app is updated regularly at no additional cost to you.

If you’ve ever found yourself with hunger pangs while out and about around the Bay Area, now you’ll know exactly where to satisfy your cravings easily, thanks to the Food Gal app.

A handy synopis of each recommended place, complete with photos.

Giveaway: I’m happy to be able to give away eight free copies of my “Food Gal’s Ultimate Guide to Bay Area Dining.”

How to get a freebie app?

Just mention the app on Twitter or on Facebook, then leave me a comment on my blog, telling me that you did.

First eight people to do so receive the free app.

If you miss that opportunity, you can always buy a copy of the app using the link on the rail to your right. And if you write a review of the app at the iTunes store site, you’ll have this Food Gal’s eternal gratitude.

Share and Enjoy

    Wow, I love your smart phone app! Too bad I’m not living in the Bay area otherwise I would definitely buy it! One of my girlfriends is moving to the Bay Area in just a few weeks (so envy!) She’s such a foodie and love to dine out with her hubby. I’ll let her know about this app for sure. ;)

    Woo, Big Time congratulations, Carolyn. Sadly, being one of the dinosaurs, unless you are giving away a free Smartphone to go with that…

    Carroll: I was a dinosaur for a long time, too. I only got a smart phone about three years ago. Once you have one, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without one. LOL
