Steer Clear of Bad Restaurants with

NYU computer science wunderkind Max Stoller wants you to eat less crappy food. He's made an app that will conveniently send you a text alert any time you check into a shady restaurant.

To do this, the cleverly domained keeps track of restaurants that have been flagged as less-than-scrupulous by the New York City Health Inspector (it currently only works in NYC, but we're sure it will expand after Stoller gets a little VC money), and then texts users who check in to those restaurants on Foursquare.

Stoller says you'll be warned within 1 minute of check-in. The whole thing is as easy as a well-baked cake.

How long until Yelp (or Foursquare, which was also started at NYU) gobbles it up?
