South Riding, VA (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
GlutenFreeTravelSite, the original website devoted to showcasing user-submitted gluten free dining and travel reviews, today announced the latest update of their Dine Gluten Free mobile app for iOS and their Dine Gluten Free mobile app for Android. The mobile apps are free and enable people following gluten free diets to conduct location-based searches by town or zip code to find, map, share, and read reviews of "gluten-free friendly" places to dine when they're on-the-go. A reminder feature lets people save "must-try" spots and receive alerts when they are in close proximity.
Because every business is reviewed by someone following a gluten free diet, users of Dine Gluten Free get first-hand, personal feedback. Users can also submit new reviews of restaurants, bakeries, markets, hotels, resorts, and even cruises right from the app. Other features of the app include Restaurant Chains with Gluten Free Menus, Coupons, a Calendar of GF Events, and posts from the Gluten Free Travel Blog.
New features include an easier way to search places for gluten free meals or accommodations outside the U.S., a News Feed with the latest gluten free news, all Search functions consolidated under one tab, and an Events calendar enhanced with directions and mapping.
Karen Broussard, Founder and Publisher of GlutenFreeTravelSite and the Dine Gluten Free mobile app, commented, "Our mission with both GlutenFreeTravelSite and the newly updated Dine Gluten Free mobile app is to give anyone following a gluten free diet the confidence to dine out with ease. We want to give people the tools they need to find safe places to dine in their area -- and wherever they choose to travel." Ms. Broussard has a son who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease over nine years ago, before he was even two years old. After struggling in the early years to find restaurants and destinations that understood the gluten free diet, she launched the website.
Carol Kicinski, Editor-in-Chief of Simply Gluten Free magazine, the leading gluten free publication in America, elaborated, "Dine Gluten Free is a useful resource for the gluten-free traveler. The ability to find gluten-free friendly places to dine in the U.S. and overseas, along with reviews from users, helps take the worry out of traveling and makes this my go to app when traveling."
