SILICON VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh off of being featured in the App Store Best of 2012, Ness Computing today released a significant new version of their Ness Dining Guide App for iPhone and iPod touch, making it easier than ever to discover restaurants that your friends love. Featuring an all new user profile that beautifully sorts and displays ratings by city or cuisine, Ness Dining Guide helps users find their friends' favorite spots and more easily share their own. By highlighting a friend's "Taste Match" Ness tells you know whose taste to trust.

Know a co-worker who used to live in Austin? Quickly see the places he really loves in town. Have that one friend who knows all the best Mexican restaurants in the City? Easily see her favorites sorted by cuisine. Or if you're the foodie who everyone turns to for recommendations, show off all the places you've been, highlighting the ones you love and those you just weren't that impressed with. 

"Our customers love discovering restaurants from trusted friends - not all of their friends, but the ones they share similar tastes with," said CEO Corey Reese. "So we completely rebuilt the profile in Ness to show you which friends you have similar tastes with and which restaurants they love and would recommend. We even show places you and a friend would both enjoy. It is the simplest way to see your friends' favorite dining destinations in town."

Ness' personal "Likeness Score" predicts how much a customer will like a restaurant based on their unique preferences, making it easier to find a place they'll enjoy. 

The Ness Dining Guide App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
