– Choose your city the first time you sign in, and then change it later by clicking the “Location” button in the Menu.
– Choose whether to view by Food Truck or to view the Tweet Feed by clicking the “Display” button in the Menu.
– Choose which trucks to follow by clicking the “Trucks” button in the Menu.
– Ability to search the tweet feed to find key words like specific locations or types of food.

Please note: The majority of the trucks in our 34 featured cities do not yet have GPS tracking devices. Thus, an attempt to track them on a map through extrapolation would be highly unreliable at this time. We use a simple interface with an aggregated Twitter feed to make sure you have the most accurate, up-to-the-minute information about the locations of your favorite trucks. Once a majority have GPS tracking, we will add a map! Bon appetite!

Food Truck Follower allows you to see all your food truck tweets in one app. Food Truck Follower has a nice filter function to filter the food truck tweets by city and food truck vendor. You first set your location, then select the trucks to follow. Food Truck Follower covers trucks from most major cities (check the description for cities). Food Truck Follower can search within the trucks you select to follow. The search ONLY applies to the trucks you follow, so if you’re searching for pizza, but aren’t following any trucks mentioning pizza, you won’t get any results. Food Truck Follower is a tweet aggregator so you’ll still have to read through the tweets to find where the food trucks are.

Food Truck Follower’s list of trucks and cities is impressive. With more and more food trucks popping up all the time, the list of food trucks is getting so large that it’s getting difficult to just go through the list to select the trucks. Food Truck Follower may need to start implementing a more advanced filtering or search function because it’s getting hard to go through a list of a couple hundred trucks to follow. With each food trucks tweeting 3 or 4 times an hour, the tweet list can also get quite large. If you’re following 10 trucks and each truck tweets 4 times an hour, the tweet count can get large real quickly. All these tweets can get hard to read if they don’t get categorized some how.

Food Truck Follower’s cool. It just needs a more advanced filter and search function.
