Campusfork iphone application allows users to search for food dishes using the “nearby feature” which instantly delivers the dish photo, restaurant name, and map.  The application solves the problem of seeing before your eat.

Taking photos of food with your phone is becoming wildly popular with other major apps such as Foodspotting in the US and Meishidaren in China.

Fun game mechanics are embedded in the application.  Each user can gain points when users award “hot points” to food photos.  A leader board helps users keep score in the social network.

The iphone application also allows users to upload restaurant food photos and share the picture on Facebook and Twitter.  Users can also choose filters such as normal or an artistic retro look.

 

 

Campusfork assists the diner by providing a visual photo of the dish from the 4,000 photos internationally mainly in San Francisco

and Hong Kong so that they can see before they order.

Wong started Campusfork.com in his bedroom with only $6,000.  Today, he remains the sole owner of the company and outsourced iphone application to a local Hong Kong team.

Campusfork.com was founded by Rayfil Wong, a UC Berkeley graduate and has been on reality television show American Inventor.
