Online Food Ordering Service Snapfinger Launches New Mobile App

3/27/2011 17:01:58 PM

Snapfinger, the nation’s largest online food ordering service, announced the launch of its new mobile application today. Designed for the iOS platform, the free application provides consumers a convenient, quick and easy way to access and order food from over 500,000 restaurants across the country. Snapfinger also launched a Sweepstakes program today that will reward one registered user with a free meal for themselves and four lucky friends every Friday for an entire year.

A Lifestyle Choice

Designed to put online food ordering at the fingertips of consumers, Snapfinger’s new mobile app offers a fast, easy, and free solution that provides access to over 500,000 restaurants in North America. The updated app is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices and is equipped with a familiar online shopping interface that allows users to order food instantaneously. A new Android version of the app will be available in a few days.

“Consumers are strapped for time today,” said Jim Garrett, Snapfinger’s CEO, “and Snapfinger’s new mobile app helps them to keep more of it. When you’re hungry, the last thing you want to do is fumble around online sifting through pages of results. You just want to find the food you’re looking for – and fast – because the quicker you find it, the quicker you eat! And that’s exactly what Snapfinger helps consumers do. Ultimately, it’s ideal for three kinds of people: They’re busy. They’re hungry. Or they’re busy and hungry. And today, that applies to nearly everyone.”

Guaranteed Pricing

Snapfinger’s mobile app is about a lot more than just speed and convenience. The new app mirrors the functionality of the website, Snapfinger.com, which offers consumers several other benefits, especially value. The free online food ordering service provides consumers with discounts, rewards, and a pricing guarantee.

“Consumers are closely watching their spending and many don’t realize that some companies inflate their prices for online orders,” said John Tawadros, President, Snapfinger. “Unsuspecting consumers trust that the prices are the same, meanwhile they may pay an extra $3.50 for an order of buffalo strips. Snapfinger has zero hidden charges. We guarantee that the prices on our site are exactly the same as what you would find in the restaurant."

Free Food Fridays for Five Friends

Fast. Easy. Free. How can you beat that? To celebrate the launch of its new mobile app, Snapfinger is running a sweepstakes program. Each person who downloads the Snapfinger app and registers is eligible for the Free Food Fridays promotion. One lucky winner can order lunch or dinner for themselves and four lucky friends every Friday for an entire year. A winner will be drawn on May 1st.

“We’re excited about the launch of our new mobile app and what it means for our customers,” said Tawadros. “This sweepstakes program is a great way to thank our users for their business and loyalty. Whether you’re a mom who wants to pick up Boston Market after soccer practice, a weary business traveler craving California Pizza Kitchen, or it’s your turn to pick up sandwiches at Subway before the big game –Snapfinger will help you order the food you want fast.“

The Snapfinger – Food Ordering App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
