SynchroLife - The Smart Food App

SynchroLife's concept is a social discovery service for food.

Have you ever felt stressed when searching for the perfect place for dinner? Have you questioned the trustworthiness of online restaurant reviews? Forget average scores and paid promotions, whether a restaurant is good or not is subjective and depends on your personal tastes. SynchroLife wants to make restaurant discovery fun again by focusing on just this, analyzing each individual user's tastes, lifestyle, and preferences.

SynchroLife's live feeds let users explore restaurants and connect with foodies from all around the world, making food discovery a fun, social, and interactive experience.

The SynchroLife Team is currently in the process of incorporating blockchain technology and an Ethereum based original token into the SynchroLife platform to create the world's first decentralized restaurant recommendation platform. This new platform is scheduled to be released to the public by April 2018.
