I live alone and eat a fair amount of pizza. It’s usually Harpo’s, which I’m quite satisfied with, but I have been wanting to try this new app that Pizza Hut has, done by MicroImage. It does what it says on the box, lets you order pizza from your Android phone. How well does it work? OK enough, I wrote up the deets on YAMU. The pizza still isn’t that good.
As I said, en fin
So is the addition of Android ordering a killer app? Not really, but it is pretty cool. The Pizza Hut call center (011 2 729 729) is pretty efficient on its own and their website lets you order online, albeit through some pretty hideous design.
Would we recommend the app? Sure. We just wouldn’t necessarily recommend the pizza. (The Pizza Hut Android App)
The app works in the sense that you can place an order and it A) sends you a confirmation PIN and B) the company calls you back, AKA the systems work. Is it blowing my mind with how technology has improved the pizza experience? Not really. The app isn’t especially pretty or slick, it just works. And it doesn’t do billing or anything more complicated, and a phone call is still required to make the whole thing real. The thing is, the Pizza Hut phone line is already pretty sophisticated, so it’s not a crazy value add there.
That is, in the future I’d probably just call. There are places, however, that it sucks to call. Also, if the menus were a bit better that might save some trubs also. It’s a good start. Sri Lanka now has a pizza app that works. As in, you really do get your pizza. Check out the full review on YAMU.
