Burpple Serves Up A Fresh Version Of Its Social App For Foodies

Burpple, the memorably-named mobile app for food lovers that we profiled in December, has launched an updated version that makes it easier for gourmands to share pictures and recommendations.

The iOS and Android app’s brand new design has a revamped feed that allows users to see photos, restaurant names, comments, likes and other activity at a glance. Once you spot a tempting dish, Burpple’s Social Food Guide allows you to take a closer look at restaurants with interior photos, venue info and a “social menu” that ranks items by popularity. Want to find other lovers of Ethiopian cuisine or uni? The Community feature brings together users with similar interests in food.


Since its launch in December 2011, Burpple’s users have shared over 700,000 photos of food from over 100,000 merchants in 4,000 cities. The app’s team is based in Singapore and received seed funding from Neoteny Labs and QuestVC.
