Delivery.com iPhone App released
Delivery.com Unveils iPhone Application for Easy Ordering on the Go
Uses geo-location to connect users with nearby restaurants and stores
Delivery.com, a leading destination for local online ordering, today unveiled its interactive and easy-to-use mobile application for the iPhone. Available for free from the iTunes store, the Delivery.com iPhone application allows users to search and order delivery and pickup from a network of thousands of restaurants, grocers, wine and liquor stores and other local vendors.
Among the mobile application’s features is a new geo-location tool that connects with a user’s current GPS location to display a map of Delivery.com merchants in the surrounding area. With the ‘Nearby’ feature, users can clearly visualize all of the Delivery.com restaurants and stores in immediate proximity, choose where they will order from based on distance, and even plan the route they’ll use to pick up their order.
“The Delivery.com customer appreciates the convenience of ordering what they want, when they want it,” said Jonathan Mark, Vice President of Marketing for Delivery.com. “Our mobile application makes it even easier to get everything you want, even on the go.”
Delivery.com’s mobile application combines everything people love about the online service: Users can filter search results by cuisine, distance, and rating; browse restaurant menus and store inventories; customize orders with special instructions; checkout securely while paying by credit card, debit or gift card; and track Delivery Points. Plus, the application’s new recommendation tool allows users to suggest merchants not yet available on Delivery.com.
Users can search for local merchants by three easy ways from the application: by using their current GPS location, entering a new address or selecting a saved address from their account. The application automatically synchronizes with a user’s current Delivery.com account, allowing for easy access to a user’s settings, order and payment history, and favorite merchants and orders.
To introduce the application, Delivery.com is offering a special promotion for a limited time: When a user places their first mobile order, they will receive a $5 Delivery.com gift card to use on a future purchase.
Version 1.0 of the Delivery.com iPhone application is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch 2 or iPad. Delivery.com plans to provide mobile applications for other devices in the near future.
