Description

So you're probably thinking to yourself, "What is a Foodie?"

A Foodie is an informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food and drink. The word was coined in 1981 by Paul Levy and Ann Barr, who used it in the title of their 1984 book The Official Foodie Handbook.

We have created the coolest program for all you food lovers. We have selected 52 restaurants, from all various neighborhoods, various cuisines and price points, but they have a couple things in common, killer food and great passion that oozes from the chef/owners of these non-corporate gems.

Our vehicle to promote these restaurants is a deck of cardsjust like playing cardseach card contains a detailed description of the restaurant and is also a $10 gift certificate to that restaurant. The decks retail for $30, making it almost ridiculous to not own onewho doesn't eat out at least three times a year...

We are going from city to city and gathering up one foodie at a time. Please see if we’re in your city and if we’re not don’t worry we’ll be there soon.

Don't get suckered into downloading this app!

:
The description above sounds interesting and the "deck of cards" idea seems like a fun gimmick to promote and get the word out about some restaurants. Unfortunately that description has almost NOTHING to do with this app.
First, the description is very deceptive. This app is nothing but a single screen repeating the description exactly. It then wants you to purchase the aforementioned deck of cards for one of only 2 cities which happen to be right next to each other, Kansas City and St Louis. I'd be willing to go as far as to bet that the two decks of cards have many overlapping restaurants as well.
It's also deceptive because this is nothing but a shill for an in-app purchase, which isn't indicated in the side bar above at all, as it is (and I think is supposed to be) in almost every other app that has in-app purchases.
It's also downright laughable that they say "please see if we're in your city" when there are only two cities anyway.
Also in the deceit department is the fact that the screen shots above aren't actually in the app itself at all. I'm guessing they only appear after you make the in-app purchase.
One of the worst and most shameless SPAM apps I've come across. It's literally nothing but an ad! If I had any idea how to do so I'd report the developers to Apple.
