“The Miele Guide iPhone application provides iPhone users full access to the latest edition of The Miele Guide (in this case the 2009/2010 edition), whenever they want and wherever they are. Users will be able to search through detailed profiles of Asia’s best 450 restaurants, which include reviews and restaurant details such as its website, phone number, opening hours, and the accepted methods of payment.Functionality and simplicity were priorities in developing this stylish new application. A range of flexible search options makes finding restaurants a breeze. Users can search by the restaurant’s name; its ranking in the guide, location (city and country) or by cuisine. Calling a restaurant is just one tap away, and so too is opening up a restaurant’s website or finding it on the application’s preloaded maps.Users will love this application’s ability to plug into the phone’s GPS capabilities. With the application, foodies on the go will be able to detect their current location and get recommendations for nearby restaurants. Tapping on the ‘Map Views’ feature will then offer up easy to use directions on how to get to these restaurants. Further, through the application’s preloaded maps, users can, without having to eat up data charges, search for restaurants in any Asian city using the phone’s Map View, choosing where to eat based on location.The application also has a ‘Favorites’ function, which allows users to quickly highlight and recall restaurants they love or want to visit.”
The Miele Guide iPhone application is currently selling for US$ 4.99 at the Apple App Store via iTunes.
