Civilians Review Restaurants, Get Paid With the Atlis App

The company’s mission is to make word of mouth count


The app is available through the iPhone App Store or Google Play.

A new social network for food-lovers is on the rise with the Atlis app, which allows users to get paid for offering restaurant recommendations in New York City.

The food tech start-up provides an online community to ask for recommendations for the best food spots in the neighborhood and receive authentic referrals. 

Founders Nadav Eitan and Daniel Leon are paying users $5 through PayPal when successful referrals are made, Grub Street reported. The catch is that only the first person to make the recommendation will receive the cash reward.

Atlis is a platform that allows users to find the perfect location and not waste time making decisions based on poorly written or misleading reviews, according to the company website.

Yelp, which has the legal right to manipulate its listings, can deter users from specific restaurants with only one bad review.

According to Grub Street, the app will have exclusively positive, shorter, and more direct reviews and recommendations.
