FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NASHVILLE, TN, June 5, 2013
Magellan Press, Inc., creator of the bestselling LocalEats® iPhone and iPad apps, online dining guide (LocalEats.com), and the publisher of the Where the Locals Eat® series of books, is pleased to announce the release of a new LocalEats® app designed specifically for Android devices.
LocalEats® for Android guides discerning diners to the best independently owned restaurants across America and select international cities. Users can search restaurants by city Top 100 lists as well as category winners, all sortable by price, neighborhood or type of cuisine. The “nearby” feature utilizes GPS mapping to identify great local restaurants near the user’s precise location. All selections are made by the LocalEats editorial staff, who research local media and relevant dining blogs, monitor social media, survey food-savvy locals and travelers, and take into account their personal dining experiences. There are no national chains listed, and restaurants cannot pay for inclusion.
From LocalEats editorial director Pat Embry, “There are a lot of dining apps that rely solely on user contributions for their content, but depending on anonymous opinions yields wildly inconsistent results. We take the guesswork out of choosing a restaurant by doing the homework for you. If we list a restaurant, you know it’s good. We’ve been publishing dining guides over 15 years, and we believe our method for selecting great restaurants works – it’s why folks trust our recommendations.”
Some of the features available on LocalEats® for Android:
- Lists the best independently owned restaurants across the U.S., plus 50 international cities
- 100% curated listings
- No national chain restaurants are included.

You can download LocalEats® for Android devices from the Google play store for $0.99. Search for “LocalEats” or find in the Travel & Local category.
