Ever waited a lifetime to place your order or overpaid for a tiny steak? Maybe you barely heard your date over dinner? Even worse, you got food poisoning from your local take-out. Help out your fellow diners by reporting on TaintedNapkins.

When launching TaintedNapkins you will be brought into the map and you will see restaurants pop-up all around your current location. The restaurants will be represented by green, yellow, orange, and red napkins and these napkins will correlate to the restaurants ratings. The green napkin will represent a good restaurant and the red napkin will represent a bad restaurant.

Once you’ve tapped on a napkin, you’ll be able to see that restaurants ratings based upon four categories and those are; Bad Atmosphere, Food Poisoning, Poor Food Quality, and Bad Service. If you feel that a restaurant meets one, or more, of these categories you can rate it by tapping on the category that you found offensive and then tap on the”+1″ button. This will submit the rating and then you’ll be able to come back and rate other categories or come back out to the map.

If you’d like to visit a restaurant because it has good ratings all you need to do is tap on the Get Directions button on the restaurants menu. This will open up the maps and give you the guided directions that you’ll need to visit the location. Also, at the bottom of the map you can tap on the arrow the see a list of restaurants that are close to you if you would rather view them that way as opposed to the map.

The only option that you’ll have as far as customizing your profile will be the custom hashtag that you can add to your profile, and we’ll get into hashtags and how they work below.

To see who’s available in your area to chill you’ll want to come into the Home tab. Here you’ll tap on the Down to Chill button and your profile will go into Online mode. Down to Chill will then use your current location to find others around you that are ready to chill as well. Once a profile card is show to you in the Home feed you can either Chill with that person, which will send them a request and open a chat with them, or Next them, which will discard that profile card and show you the next available person. The Home feed is where you are going to find your Facebook friends as well as people who are close by.

The Feed tab is where the hashtags are going to come into play. There will be two sections to the Feed tab, your Current Location and Following. The current location will show the city name in the top left of the screen. Here you will see updates and comments from people who have used your cities hashtag to leave a post. For example, we are located in Modesto and our cities hashtag is #Modesto, so whenever someone posts to that hashtag they will show up in my cities news feed. From there I can comment and like other people’s postings. The Following tab will allow you to search for specific hashtags to follow and you’ll see posts for the hashtags that you follow. The custom hashtag that you set for your profile will automatically be followed in this section.

You’ll see all of your chat history with everyone you’ve connected with as well as any hashtags that you’ve posted to. Tapping on a chat will bring you into it where you can continue to reply to that person, where you can send text or photos. If you’d ever like to leave a chat tap the three dots in the chat history and you’ll have to unmatch yourself from them and you’ll leave the chat. But the main purpose of the chat tab is for you to set up a time and place to go chill with the person that you matched with.

NoteStream

notestream-app-banner

NoteStream helps you learn about subjects you’re passionate about in self-contained streams containing easy to understand language and relevant illustrations.

NoteStream is for people who are passionate for learning, but don’t have time (or maybe the patience) to research the subject themselves. With that in mind, the developers built NoteStream to solve this problem. You can think of NoteStream as a series of encyclopedia articles that are laid out in an article format, are very easy to read, and contain both text and visual media to aid in understanding.

Each of these succinct and easily digestible lessons are called NoteStreams, and there are a few actions you can perform when browsing and viewing them. When you first tap on a NoteStream in Explore, you are presented with a short blurb about the NoteStream as well as the name of the author, community rating, and the option to either read the NoteStream or share it.

The power wheel contains five options, and is the way you navigate through the app. On the power wheel, you have a shortcut to the explore tab where you can find new and interesting NoteStreams, you can bookmark the current note page you’re on for quickly revisiting later, a feel tool where you indicate your feelings about the note you’re reading (where you can select eager, smart, excited, or confused), an option to share the note you’re reading via email or social networks, and finally the shortcut to your current streams.
