NAVI MUM­BAI: Crav­ing for some pip­ing hot vada-pav or tangy chaat but don’t know where to go? A newly launched mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion Search My Lo­cal, which lists eat­ing out­lets for food­ies to ex­plore in Navi Mum­bai, has al­ready been down­loaded by over 500 users in two months.

Kopar Khairane res­i­dent Swap­nil Ya­dav, 27, and founder of Search My Lo­cal said, “Our app is for those who of­ten miss their meals be­cause they don’t have time to travel to a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion to eat. With Search My Lo­cal, you can en­able your GPS lo­ca­tion and find the list of all eater­ies nearby.”

The colour­ful app, avail­able on an­droid, is split into sev­eral sec­tions and caters to all kinds

of peo­ple — those with tight bud­gets and those with a filthy amount to splurge. One can se­lect from the

two main op­tions — eater­ies and bev­er­age out­lets — which fur­ther branch out into street food out­lets, restau­rants, cafes

THE COLOUR­FUL APP, AVAIL­ABLE ON AN­DROID, IS SPLIT INTO SEV­ERAL SEC­TIONS AND CATERS TO ALL KINDS OF PEO­PLE

and resto-bars among oth­ers.

The cakes and bakes sec­tion is for those with a sweet tooth and the Sattvik sec­tion is for Jain food. For health en­thu­si­asts, there is the con­scious freaks sec­tion.

Nikita Sheth, 23, co-founder of the app, said this is the only app in In­dia that con­cen­trates on lo­cal and bud­get food. “Most peo­ple are en­gaged in long hours of trav­el­ling and the app comes handy, thanks to its user-friendly in­ter­face,” said Sheth.
