According to a survey conducted by BUZZMEDIA Labs in partnership with Research Now, 40% of consumers, ages 18-24-years-old, responded having more than 21 apps on their mobile device. Whether it’s games, social networking, entertainment or productivity apps, the Youth and Young Adult (YAYA) market use their phones for much more than just calling and texting.

35-Top-Restaurant-Apps-InfographicYAYA Connection is currently researching millennial habits and trends when it comes to dining out and social media sharing with friends. Before any millennial foodie can snap a picture of their dinner to share of Instagram, they conduct a search to find a great place or deal to satisfy their appetite.

Here are five free mobile apps that are available across different mobile devices and have earned a high ranking among young, deal seeking food enthusiasts:

1. Yelp

“Find the best businesses around you, save money by discovering nearby deals, and share your experiences with Tips, Check-ins, and Photos.”

2. Urbansppon

“You can lock down neighborhood, business, and/or price range to narrow the results.”

3. Foursquare

“Discover and learn about great places nearby, search for what you’re craving, and get deals and tips along the way.”

4. Groupon

“Find a new favorite place on the go. Deals to buy and use today.”

5. Ness

“The first personal search engine based on your unique tastes, preferences and personality.”

    I would definitely recommend businesses to utilize Groupon. I check my Groupon e-mail daily and have tried new places to eat just because there was a great Groupon for it. Some of them have turned out to be fabulous places, and I am now a loyal customer.
