Have2eat is a popular mobile application available for iPhone and Android-based de- vices that helps users to find and assess nearby restaurants. It lists restaurants lo- cated around the device and provides a quick highlight about the opinions expressed by online reviewers. Have2eat summarizes tex- tual reviews by extracting relevant sentences and by automatically generating detailed rat- ings about specific aspects of the restaurant. A compact one-screen digest allows users to quickly access the information they need, ex- pand to full review pages, and report their ex- perience online by entering ratings and com- ments.
