New member home page

Posted on September 9th, by Foodio54 in Development. No Comments

We’ve spruced up the member home page to better highlight what you can do on Foodio54. We also wanted to highlight the recommendations, and give an indication of how sure we are of their accuracy. Once you’ve rated at least 10 restaurants we will show you a score of how accurate your recommendations are. The more ratings the better the recommendations will be for you, and you will also help us make recommendations for other people as well.

This is really the first of 3 steps of big changes to come in the not so distant future, so stay tuned we’ve been reading your feedback and we’re working on some great new features.
