Truffle now lets you share your food tips via iMessage
While you’ve already bought Yelp and different apps to assist you determine the place to eat, Truffle is designed particularly for sharing suggestions with mates and different individuals you know.
A brand new replace ought to make that sharing even simpler. The large addition is an iMessage app, which suggests (you guessed it) that Truffle is now built-in with iMessage. When you’re texting with somebody, you can simply faucet on the Truffle icon and produce up a listing of your favorites from the app, or run a Truffle search.
When you discover what you’re on the lookout for, you can ship the hyperlink to your good friend. If they faucet on it, they’ll convey up the related itemizing in Truffle (if they’ve the app put in) or they’ll be requested to put in Truffle (in the event that they don’t).
That may sound fairly simple, but it surely places Truffle in a brand new context. Instead of simply swapping suggestions whereas contained in the app, you can now convey them up throughout another iMessage dialog.
Let’s say, as an example, you’re simply randomly texting with Tom Limongello, the CEO of Truffle, and he desires to fulfill up. Then one among you can simply pull up your favorites and advocate a handy espresso store with out having to go away the chat.
By the way in which, it’s been a 12 months since I first wrote about Truffle, and it’s nonetheless iOS solely. But maybe an Android model is getting nearer, as a result of once we mentioned it, Limongello mentioned, I wanted to get the iPhone right before we scaled it out.
To him, this iMessage integration was an enormous a part of getting it proper. And sure, he can envision different integrations too — he mentioned he’d love to be in dating apps, and he pointed to the partnership between Airbnb and Resy as an indication of how important restaurants are for travel.
