Food Network continues to push into the world of apps with original utilities that go beyond mirroring its TV shows. They’ve just launched “On the Road,” a free app for iPhone and iPad, designed to help you satisfy your hunger on the road. You can browse a database of nearly 3,000 locations featured in Food Network shows including restaurants, food trucks and hot spots. The app uses geolocation to serve up destinations near you, and you can create your own road trips, to boot.
Food Network has figured out how to make its TV content relevant and fun for mobile users. The app encourages users to share their favorite stops on Facebook or custom build road trips based on themed shows.
