Foodworthy Image-Based Food Rating App Launches on iOS


Foodworthy has announced the launch of its photo-based food rating app on iOS devices. The app looks to compete with services like Yelp by encouraging users to take pictures of their food at restaurants and review these specific meals before sharing them with the community.

Once users sign up for a Foodworthy account, they’re presented with three main feeds of content for new posts, popular posts and posts from users they follow. Users can filter these feeds based on each business’ distance from the user, whether the location is currently open and the meal’s price range, as well as based on specific restaurant features, including valet parking or wheelchair accessibility, as examples. Finally, users can filter their results based on specific food requirements, like gluten free or vegetarian options. A separate search box allows users to search for specific foods, businesses or people.

Each feed presents images and reviews (where available) in a setup similar to Instagram, allowing users to like or comment on individual entries. Tapping on a meal’s picture brings up more information about the business, including a feed of additional pictures posted there, as well as offering the business’ location on a map and its operating hours, among other information. In addition to following other users, these locations can also be followed.

Users aren’t required to actually review a meal, and can instead simply share the picture (and perhaps other details, like its price range) before posting it to their feed. The app also provides an emoji-based rating system for users to provide feedback on the meal via an emoji.

In a statement, Josh Bernfeld, co-founder and CEO of Foodworthy, commented:

Younger generations are increasingly visual. We have found that people overwhelmingly prefer a good photo with a concise review to a long, opinionated written review. Knowing this, we have produced a powerful app that both users and restaurants love.

Foodworthy is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store.

Find Out Your Uber Passenger Rating with this Script


Find Out Your Uber Passenger Rating with this Script

Uber is a great way to get a ride without having to hail a cab. When you finish a ride, you get a chance to rate your driver and your experience. However, the drivers get to rate you too. Here’s how to find out your rating, which is normally a closely-kept secret.

The trick, revealed by Aaron Landy in a post over at Medium (linked below) is pretty easy. Just open your browser (he used Chrome but I tested this in Firefox as well) and follow these steps:

  • Go to and log in.
  • When page below loads, open console (CMD + option + j on Chrome).
  • Paste Javascript code into your console.

    if(window.Uber.pingData === false) { location.reload(); } else { alert("Name : " + window.Uber.pingData.client.firstName + " " + window.Uber.pingData.client.lastName + "\nEmail : "+ + "\nPassenger rating is : "+ window.Uber.pingData.client.rating); }

  • The first time you paste code, your browser will reload. Keep the console open and once the page loads again, paste code again. If you are successful, popup below will appear.

We tested it out, and sure enough, it works. Your Uber passenger rating is a bit of a secret that’s only seen by drivers when you call for an Uber, so if you see your rating is a little low, that might explain why you’ve had problems finding a driver (if you have.)

Of course, if your rating is low, there isn’t too much you can do about it other than be nicer to the drivers you do get, but overall it’ll give you an idea of how well the Uber rides you’ve taken have gone from the perspective of the person in the driver’s seat. Hit the link below to read more.

Note: Uber is aware of the script, and they’re working to fix it, so give it a try while it still works! There’s no guarantee it’ll work forever.
