      • To add a scale of likeness for a restaurant

        To be able to add a degree of likeness. I do not love all the restaurants I bookmark I merely like some and don't want them to be in the same category as the others.

          Thank you to everyone for weighing in on this suggestion!

          After much consideration, we think it best to avoid yet another service that has its own star ratings, opting instead to rely on existing systems for this. In version 3, we have now integrated Yelp ratings for many restaurants.

          Additionally, we realized that “want to try” and “love” is a false dichotomy, and have therefore added a 3rd option of simply “tried”. We hope this will provide the desired granularity and solve the primary pain point behind this suggestion.

        • Bring back "Near Me"

          Positively the most useful feature in the old app was the list ordered by proximity. Now I have to scroll down to my city in alphabetical order (I'm usually in T for Toronto!), and even once I'm down there, the places are in alphabetical order now. The main question I used to use the app to answer was: Which of my favourite places are near me now? The map sort of works but it's not half as useful when deciding where to eat.

            • Allow metric and imperial units

              I'm from New Zealand. Here in the future we use metric. What the hell is a foot?!

              • Have an option like "been there" that is neither "want to try" nor "love"

                If I go to a place and it was just OK, I still want to keep the bookmark.

                • Show more than 50 tag matches

                  If you search by a tag, it only shows 50 matches.

                  Is it possible to have an option to "See 50 more", as it would be good to build up a view of more than 50 options on the map view.

                  Thanks

                      • add a way to search the database of a neighborhood regardless of what neighborhood you are currently in

                        Let's say I'm having lunch with a friend in Studio City and she tells me about a restaurant in Beverly Hills that I should go to. Using my iPhone I try searching for the restaurant in the matchbook data base so that I can bookmark it. But because I am in a different neighborhood than the restaurant I am searching for it does not show up in the matching places database

                          This was just completed in the most recent update.

                          If you know the name of the place
                          1. Click Add Place
                          2. Click the field which shows your current City and State. Change this to the City/State that you want to search in.
                          3. Enter the name of the place and click Search.

                          If you want to search for popular places in a particular neighborhood.
                          1. Click the Search tab along the bottom that has a picture of a magnifying glass
                          2. Click Pick Location
                          3. Move the map so the displayed radius encircles the area you want to search in. You may need to pinch the map to do this.
                          4. Click Done
                          5. Choose a tag you want to search for (optional)
                          6. Click Search.

                        • Allow users to create and save their own tags

                          Rather than having to select or find premade tags for places, allow users to input their own that they may find useful

                                It would be nice to be able to show only the places I want to go on the map. With so many restaurants it would be nice to have a little more control on what I can see.

                                  • Sort by city

                                    Hi - would love to be able to sort by city. I often keep lists of restaurants I want to try in different cities, including my own (Washington, DC). Right now you can only sort by neighborhood, which is great if I'm only bookmarking restaurants in one city. But now, I have restaurants in DC, LA, NY and Philly and they're all displayed in the same page. Love the app, but would love it even more if that option was available. Thanks!

                                    • Sort by neighborhood option should come after all entries are grouped by state

                                      Otherwise all entries for different states are all mixed in with each other.

                                      • Enable correction of wrong database entries

                                        I just found an entry I would like to bookmark. The adress is not included, so I added a new place. Unfortunately, my complete entry is always overruled by the incomplete one which was there before.

                                        • Have an option to search key words and change miles to km

                                          Change miles to km and when you enter a search word results show closest places to you eg. Search "tea garden" results show in order closest ranging further
