I created this app to provide users with my most up-to-date food and beverage recommendations in Rome. "Katie Parla's Rome" is built to fetch new data whenever it connects to the internet. BUT the app also work offline, so you get the best of both worlds--dynamic content paired with offline capabilities! Getting to the heart of Roman cuisine can be a tall order, but I have dedicated years to helping visitors and locals alike discover the city's dining culture. "Katie Parla's Rome" brings together 175 personally and independently vetted venues including restaurants, pizzerias, wine bars, craft beer pubs, gelato shops, and bakeries and gives users access to an expert's view of the finest food and drink Rome has to offer. Key features: -Browse 200 of Rome's best food & beverage venues -GPS: Find nearby venues automatically -Content and maps available offline -Advanced search: filter by category, distance, and budget range -Share venues with friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter -Katie's Picks category lists author's absolute favorite venues -Save your favorite venues to "My Picks" category -Browse Katie's blog For more information visit http://katieparla.com/apps/.
