The Location Based Food Hunting Game App Goes Android

PT Beabeo, the Jakarta-based developer of the food discovery app,  Tasterous, launched their Android version of the  application on June 13.

The mobile food discovery app allows users to find out what restaurants are nearby, post up location-tagged photos of dishes, follow friends to see what they’re eating , and it incorporates a  social gaming element to encourage users to contribute. The app, which is available globally, uses the Foursquare API for users to check into an eatery, and every Foursquare location is available to Tasterous users.

Tasterous was first launched as a BlackBerry app on April 29, with Tasterous CEO Ronald Ishak promising that the app would be available for the BlackBerry PlayBook, Android OS,  iOS and Windows Phone 7 by the end of the year.

The app, which is about 3MB in size, requires Android OS 2.1 and up to run.
