Apps that’ll let you get food delivered, to your doorstep
This is the time of the year, when it rains harder and more than the rest of the year. Water logging on roads and traffic snarls across the city makes movement even more difficult. If you don’t want to go out or feel too lazy to cook, you can order something from outside. Here are some new apps which allow users to order food right at their doorstep.
Google’s food ordering app Areo is currently available to users in Mumbai and Bengaluru. It is basically an aggregator of services offered by other food ordering apps such as Fasoos, Freshmenu, Holachef and Box8. It doesn’t show the nearest restaurants and their menu, but puts more emphasis on the food items with nice looking close UPM shots of them. These results are presented in an uncluttered card-based format, like Google cards. Payment can be made online or after delivery.
Uber’s food ordering app UberEats is quite popular outside India and caters to users in 93 cities worldwide. However, in India, it is available only in Delhi NCR and Mumbai, as of now. It shows the names of the nearest restaurants along with their menu. It also allows users to schedule orders for a later time. Once an order is placed, users can even track the location of the delivery boy on a map.
Home Made Food
Developed by Neighbours Kitchen, Home Made Food provides freshly cooked home-made food at affordable rates. User can order one time, and even subscribe of the weekly or monthly package to get special discount. The app also has a wallet of its own. Ordering from the wallet gets you some bonus points. The app is currently available only in Delhi, but will be rolling out in Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Noida and Gurugram soon.
