A NYU computer science student named Max Stoller has cooked up a winning entry for the NYC Big Apps competition.
His app, Don’t Eat At, cross references Health Department inspections with Foursquare check-ins.
Any eatery with less than 28 points will trigger a text message warning upon check in, and as Stoller points out, “There are 1660 restaurants that have scored 28 or more points and have not yet been closed. Do you really want to eat at a place like that?”
Somebody make this man a badge: Stomach Savior.
