Moodfood wins Canpages contest by feeding you in living colour

Posted by Warren Frey

Vancouver-based Canpages (recently acquired by the Yellow Pages Group) has just announced that the winner of their API contest is none other than Moodfood, an iPhone app designed by Windsor based startup Red Piston. 

Moodfood lets users input the color they associated with their current mood, then leverages the iPhone’s location aware functionality and draws on the Canpages database of over one million business listings to find appropriate nearby restaurants. The app also integrates with Facebook, allowing users to update their page with their restaurant choices. The app is available for free on the iTunes store and there’s also a video of Moodfood in action. The creators of the app won over $5,000 for their efforts.
