UrbanSpoon

Back in December, Urbanspoon removed their app from the Windows Phone app store. Part of a growing and disturbing trend, it had appeared that the famous restaurant finder app had seen its last days on Windows Phone. Urbanspoon was a rather nicely designed app, but the last update from the company was back in 2012, so Windows Phone support had already withered.

For better or worse, Urbanspoon was acquired by Zomato just a few weeks ago for a reported $50 million. Interestingly, Zomato not only has a Windows Phone app but a highly-rated one as well (and it looks like they will have a Windows 8.1 app on the way).

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Food and Dining Apps

We all have been there. It is time to eat and you have no clue what you are in the mood to cook or cannot think of a place to go. Luckily, there are plenty of Windows Phone apps to help point your appetite in the right direction. The Windows Phone Store has a large assortment of apps that will help us locate restaurants or find a recipe that will hit the right spot.

Today we have tapped four of the top rated Food and Dining apps for this week’s Windows Phone Central Roundup. These apps mainly deal with finding a place to grab a bite to eat on the go or selecting the right place when you are in the mood for a sit down meal. However, for good measure, we do toss in one Windows Phone app to help you find a tasty recipe for those times you prefer to stay home and cook in.

For you food mavens out there you may want to take a look at the recently updated Urbanspoon app (urbanspoon.com) for Windows Phone 8. Although it’s just a minor update (0.0.1 to be accurate), it does bring quite a few nifty features.

Urbanspoon was one of the Windows Phone 8 launch titles and we gave you a demo of it at the end of October. The app was solid for finding eateries but like a lot of 1.0 apps it was all meat but little in the way of optimizations. This tiny update goes a long way in improving performance, in our opinion, including the TellMe command e.g. “Urbanspoon..I want dinner”, which seems to be more reliable now.
