Rave Reviews is the easiest and most exciting way to find and share the best local restaurants, clubs, shops, and services. We take the stale premise of online reviews à la Yelp and Google+ Local and inject it with a dose of social, ratings aggregation, and micro-videos to create an entirely new way to experience online reviews.
Fake reviews aren’t the outliers anymore. They’re the norm.
The 5-Star Rating System is Outdated
One Plumber, Five Ratings
A single local plumber has five different reviews from five different ratings services. If that’s not the sign of a broken system, we don’t know what is.
Get the whole picture
Rave Reviews gives you the whole picture so you can decide fast
- See everything at-a-glance: Rave Reviews pulls information and ratings from Google+ Local and Yelp.
- Micro Videos: Text reviews are so yesterday. Rave Reviews six-second video reviews capture not only the opinioning, but show the food, the sight and sounds, the ambiance.
- Couple rating comparisons with micro videos and voilà, you’ve made up your mind!
- Social at the core: Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, your next post is a click away on the Rave Review app.
