The Ultimate Food App Project

Blog

Welcome to Our New Home!

We’ve loved the time we’ve spent at our old site at WordPress.com, but as a division of a web development firm, we thought it was time to move The Ultimate Food App project to our own home.  This will give us the flexibility to do a lot more with this site as our quest to make the best app to find “Your Next Best Meal” into a reality.

For example, just as with any other Banshee Cloud client, our site can be easily switched to different servers to handle increased traffic and bypass various internet issues.

Oh yeah…and we also did some redecorating…giving the site a new look!

If you’re already subscribing to our blog, your membership will be automatically moved to the new site and you will continue to get our updates there!

The Social Menu aka the Home Screen

Social Menu Page_POST

When you open The Ultimate Food App, you find photos of nearby dishes.  These are displayed based upon a weighing system that looks at several factors such as:

  • Proximity to your location
  • Ratings by users
  • Reviews by users
  • Availability of timed specials

You also have the ability to search both at a basic and advanced level.

The photos also show:

  • Ratings
  • Prices

You can tap or click on a photo to go to the Dish Page, which contains detailed information.

We’d love to hear from you with feedback on the Social Menu page, plus what else you would expect to see on this screen!

As 2013 begins, it’s the perfect time for us to get some feedback on our app design.  Many of you know that we are always listening for feedback from anyone and everyone.  But it will soon be time for us to finalize the core functionality design, so over the course of the next few weeks we shall solicit feedback for different aspects of The Ultimate Food App.

In the meantime, we’d like to hear some open comments from any of you on what you would like to see in our app!

A New Era

It’s a new year.  With the upcoming completion and launch of The Ultimate Food App, 2013 will mark the start of a new era.  A new dawn when people can finally use the technology they carry with them to find their Next Great Meal.  An age when restaurants can utilize a fantastic worldwide network to visually promote their entire menus.

It’s the Food Revolution!

The Food App Revolution

Happy New Year 2013!

We have big plans for 2013.  The most important being the completion of development and the launch of The Ultimate Food App.  It’s designed to be revolutionary and when you see it in action, we know you’ll find that this will be a giant leap forward in the way people find their next great meal!

So from all of us to all of you…we wish everyone a Happy, Prosperous, Revolutionary, and Delicious New Year!!!

2013 Happy New Year

Menus

We order our food by looking at menus.  So why do most food apps and food websites not have any menus?  Or worse yet, why are the only menus blurry photos that a user took and posted?  Sure they mean well and we’ve even done it ourselves…but that’s our point!  Why does the app or website leave no option for the restaurant to post its own menu?

While we’re talking about improving things, let’s not just limit our discussion to what’s online.  In the real world, it costs time and money for a restaurant to change its menu.  Sure you can have a Daily Specials or similar card.  And the big chains do a great job of creating beautiful menus for their latest promotions and seasonal offerings (like movie tie-ins and strawberry harvests).  But what about the small restaurants?  Do they have to constantly use correction fluid and pen in new prices on every menu?  Shouldn’t they have tools make their menus updated and look professional?

The Ultimate Food App has the solution.  We call it our Social Menu.  Because people can post the food they’re eating.  Sure every other food app does or should do that.  But we go a step further and let restaurants post dishes.  Even their entire menus.  And unlike other apps, we have systems in place to make sure that out of date or inaccurate posts are corrected.  Even unfair reviews can be evaluated.  By the people, by the restaurants, and by us.

Why Not?

If you’re hungry, shouldn’t you be able to locate food instead of buildings?

If you locate a restaurant online, shouldn’t it be open?

If you find food online, shouldn’t it actually be available to order?

We asked ourselves these questions and came to the conclusion that we need to create an app that provided the answers to these and lots of other questions…The Ultimate Food App!
