Apart from the lone blog post announcing ourselves to the world, we have been quiet but have been working hard on bringing some cool new features to the fray. 2010 was a busy year; busy from the perspective that we finally realized the vision of what we contemplated and planned years ago, found passionate users who kept us on our heels by requesting new features and helping us improve the service, and that every single feature we brought to light we incessantly dwelled upon if it ultimately gave our users the experience they have come to expect from us. We are proud to say that we are ending the year strong!
Before we go any further we want to wish our current and prospective users (established foodies or budding food enthusiasts) a very happy new year and hope that 2011 brings all the best dishes and that together we move closer to never having bad food again.
To look back at 2010 is like looking through a mist. So much happened, so fast that we are in awe of where we were at the beginning of the year and where we have come. We spent most of our waking moments thinking about improving service functionality, reliability and the overall experience.
In 2010 we launched DishOnIt with the web application, leading the way and the iPhone app following suit. We built integrations with Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare so you could let your friends know the “Yum Yum” dishes you have been experiencing around town and a whole lot more around identifying your dining experiences.
So where will the new year take us?
We have an exciting pipeline of features planned for the New Year, which should start appearing soon. Our focus will remain, unfaltering, to give foodies and budding foodies a platform to discover new and exciting dishes around town and never eat bad food again.
The story goes: Once upon a time in a land also known as the Valley, a not-so-young lad set out to meet certain venture capitalists and after a full day of meetings he was tired and hungry. Now when one is hungry and tired, one usually looks for nourishment; not this particular lad. He was a in a unique mood, a desire to have amazing Thai Green Curry. He asked the question “Where is the best green curry?” but no-one responded. He looked at the restaurant rating scrolls, and while there were many excellent Thai places, he knew from experience that not all of them did everything well. He did not go hungry that night, and he did find Green Curry(and he thought it was YAWN), but he always wondered looking at the horizon staring at Mt. Rainier that what if there was a crowd-sourced website which allowed people to rate each dish, wouldn’t it be something….
That little adventure in the Valley actually led to the idea which is now DishOnIt. We set out on the goal to definitively answer the question “Where in town can I find the best _______”, and while working through it we also ended up answering another important question which most people ask walking into the restaurant where they have never been before i.e. “What’s good here?”
We invite foodies worldwide to become reviewers and share your food reviews and ratings with the world, while we work on adding features and incentives for you.
