If you own an iPhone, are vegetarian (or just like healthy food) and always have trouble finding veg restaurants when you travel or even in your own city, then you really need to get this app.
The App is called VegOut and is powered by Happy Cow, which has one of the largest listings of vegetarian/vegan and veg friendly restaurants from around the world. Using your phone's built in GPS, it can recommend restaurants within a certain distance of where you currently are, or you can search for restaurants in other areas as well if you are planning ahead for a trip. The app sorts restaurants by "vegan", "vegetarian" or "veg friendly" and also shows the ratings and reviews of each restaurant as rated by Happy Cow users (to see reviews it takes you outside of the app to the Happy Cow website). The app does cost $2.99, but is probably the best $2.99 I've ever spent.
I use this app all the time when I travel and I would imagine if you live in a larger city, you'd use it at home quite a bit as well. I do admit...I have used it a few times in SLC when out in areas I don't frequent too often. Be forewarned, it doesn't find much in rural areas....but it's not the apps fault, it's the rural areas themselves. I think we've all been to at least one of those podunk towns and had to settle for fries and a grilled cheese at the local drive-thru. And ouch for the strict vegans.....better just keep on driving. Small towns have nothing to offer you.
