When we announced our gluten free grocery guide iPhone app a number of you asked when we’d bring something out for Android, too.
Today is for you, Android folks. I’m happy to share with you Triumph Dining’s first Android App, gluten-free dining cards.
There are 10 apps total, each one featuring a different language/cuisine: American, Indian, Japanese, French, Thai, Mexican, Greek, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Italian. And, just like the printed cards, the text is adapted to suit the cuisine you’re facing: no warnings about soy sauce on the Greek card, no mention of tortillas on the Japanese card.
Each app features text in English and the appropriate second language (except, of course, for the English card). The text explains what you cannot eat, as well as what you can eat. And if you’ve ever had a clueless waiter try to tell you that freshly whipped cream definitely has wheat in it, you know how nice it is to have that extra section of positivity (and yes, a waiter did once forbid me whipped cream).
Because the cards are separate apps, you can pick and choose the ones you’re likely to use. No good Vietnamese restaurants in your neighborhood? No need to pay for the Vietnamese app. If you go on vacation and find yourself in a Vietnamese restaurant – well, just pick it up. Each card is less than $1, and since the apps are lightweight they’ll download before you can say “pho”.
Because Triumph Dining was born out of two people’s desire to go (safely) to their favorite Thai restaurant, the Thai app is available for free (you can get it here).
Where will you be taking your Android gluten-free dining guides?
