Gvidi: Advanced Algorithms for your Appetite

Leading International Mobile Personalized Restaurant Guide Lands In The US

San Francisco, CA - July 11, 2013, — Hold onto your tastebuds! Gvidi, a leading international personalized restaurant guide is expanding to the US on July 11th at http://www.gvidi.me. The iPhone app features a massive directory of bar, restaurant, and cafe locations, photos, and reviews made more intelligent by Gvidi's personalized search score. Based on your searching, location, interests, and social profiles, Gvidi recommends the best restaurants fitting your tastes. Every recommended restaurant is given a percentage score based on its fit to your personal profile and can be filtered across multiple criteria (WiFi, non-smoking areas, working hours, and more).

At a time when the explosion of data around us is making our lives more complex, Gvidi is making finding a place to eat simple. The Gvidi app features a clean, glossy modern design that lets you easily get recommendations by type of cuisine or location. All recommendations are easily viewed by map and in a detailed list.

"We have learned what consumers are really looking for and you see this in Gvidi, it's easy to use and gives people what they are looking for, the simple things like our map and recommendations, Anton Baranchuk CEO and Co-Founder of AlterGeo, "Gvidi is the app that you will use, because it has what people are really looking for."

The secret to Gvidi's great recommendations is its sophisticated collaborative filtering algorithms. Gvidi processes data about habits and interests of users and their friends across a wide range of open sources such as Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, and automatically creates a potential interest level for a certain type of food. As a result, Gvidi points out how much (0% to 100%) a user will like a cafe or restaurant nearby, and will suggest the highest ranked places. User feedback from ratings and connecting through social networks ensures these personalized recommendations only get smarter as you search.
