  1. Bug: telephone is not correctly formatted

    When adding a place, I type (for example) +3266666666
    The number is then not formatted (with spaces) for readability like other places in matchbook.
    Also, then, when I click it, it dials wrongly...

    • Ability to indicate when there are duplicate entries.

      When I do a search I routinely see multiple entries for the same place. It would be great to be able to mark entries as duplicates for your review.

        • Add a web app

          I'd love a very simple web app version of the iPhone app so that when I'm reading about new places on my computer I don't have to go find my phone. Also useful to look at the map on a larger screen.

          • Contact Info & Bookmark notification

            How about giving the user the option to add contact information for places who don't seem to have a contact info? Or how about editing the contact info? Of course there has to be a way to make sure the information being imputed is accurate. And when bookmarking, how about a quick indication that a place has been marked, while keeping the user on the same page, instead of redirecting the user to the bookmarks page? That way they have the option of bookmarking multiple places with out having to search again, and again, and again, and so on... Thanks.

            • Improve search function

              I wish you could search by more than one tag. For example, if I'm looking for a place to take a client for lunch i would want to search by "nice" + "lunch" or "expensive" + "lunch."

              Secondly, I wish you could sort the search by neighborhood. If i search by "bar," i would like to filter by neighborhood rather than just see the whole list of all the bars I have bookmarked.

                • See where other matchbook users have enjoyed

                  I want to be able to add places to my matchbook where other users have loved! If I could look at restaurants/bars in a neighborhood and see if other users have enjoyed them, it will be helpful to decide restaurants I would also love to try.

                  • allow me to enter places online that will appear on my phone-- it's a pain to type in all the inforamtion on the phone.

                    Allow me to enter in the information for the app on my computer-- it's a pain to type all the information on the phone (particularly if you are entering in a number of places to try in a city that you are not currently in). Ideally that information will then be readily available on my phone.

                    • Add Friends.

                      Allow users to invite friends and view each others lists. Plus separate lists of want to try and have tried would be cool. Love the app.

                        There are many places that are deaf friendly that aren't recognized in the deaf community. Help us out here! :)

                          • Be able to bookmark multiple search results at one time

                            For example, when I search "Momofuku" in NYC, about 12 results came up. I wanted to bookmark about 10 of those but it seems I'm only able to bookmark one at a time and then have to start the whole search process over to bookmark each subsequent location.

                                        Hey, thanks for the feedback!

                                        If you scroll to the end of the search results list you’ll see a link to “Add a place”, that’s where you can enter a restaurant you think is missing from the database so we can add it.

                                        Can you send us the name of the place and your location though? We’ll look into why it didn’t show up.

                                      • Have a city view!

                                        Have a proper city view instead of the neighbourhood view in the sort options. The city names should be collapsible so I can see all my cities at a glance and then clicking on the city name should expand the list to show the places inside. There should be a separate 'near me' option which should include all places in your current city grouped in neighbourhoods.
