There’s nothing more human than eating, it’s something we all need and it’s something we can’t get from our smartphone…yet. So until that hamburger app is perfected, we will still have to go somewhere to get our food. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be devoid of our mobile needs.
In our mobile age, the only thing prompting us to leave our tablets and laptops is food, and even that is wrapped around your smartphone’s finger. Restaurant apps are becoming the status symbol of choice, and the more features the better.
If smartphone users can’t get a discount, loyalty points, or order from the app they might as well go somewhere else; it’s a dog eat dog world when it comes to restaurant apps. From viewing menus, to making reservations, to reading reviews, there is a seemingly endless ocean of apps that are meant to assist in your quest for the perfect bowl of macaroni and cheese.
With all the choices out there, it can get pretty confusing trying to get the best, most reliable one. Here in this infographic, QSRWeb has narrowed it down to the best of the best and, depending what you’re looking for in an app, you’ll find what you’re looking for.
