If you are a foodie like me, then this post is for you. What do you do when you are hungry and don’t want to cook anything? Most probably you will go outside and eat something in restaurant or food shops or in some cases, you can order something from retail food chains too. But what if you want to eat 3 different meals of 3 different restaurants, most probably you will call each of them and order your food. But what if I tell you that you can do this from a single place. Yes it’s true. With an app named TinyOwl, you can order online food from restaurants near your locality to your home.
What Is TinyOwl and How It Works
TinyOwl is a service offered by TinyOwl Technology Pvt. Ltd. It is a company which have its headquarters in Mumbai. It is basically a food ordering app from which you can order food online and get it delivered at your address. It doesn’t work with any retailers or food chains, but it havea unique concept. When you will install this app, you will be shown a list of restaurants of your city, then you can open the menu of each restaurant and order food from it. This idea came into existence when a 23 years old boy of IIT Bombay, HarshvardhanMandad and his four other friends thought to do something different. “People make choices for eating somewhere after they decide on ‘what’ they want to eat. This is where we wanted to come in,” says Harsh. TinyOwl’s aim is to have a very personal connection between people and their food.
What TinyOwl Can Do
There is a location tracker in this app, which works exactly as Google Maps. It locate your location using GPS services and then show your nearby restaurants which offers food delivery. You can choose from a number of restaurants and browse through their menu to order your food. If you think the location is detected wrong by the app, then you can enter your address manually too.
Different Modes of Payment and Personal Assistant
With TinyOwl you can order food from anywhere in your city and the modes of payment are easy too. You can either pay via cash on delivery or with credit/debit card. Price mentioned on the menu card of restaurant is what you need to pay when you order your food (even with cash on delivery). Neither the restaurants nor TinyOwl ask you to pay any other extra charges. Home delivery is free with TinyOwl, this seems to be the most helpful feature offered by it.
When you will order food using TinyOwl, it will ask you to save your information for further use. Information like credit card number, debit card number, landmark, name, number and address can be saved in it. Next time when you are going to order something, you don’t have to enter this information.
I don’t think I have to tell more about it as I have already mentioned everything about it. TinyOwl is currently beta app and was launched in November 2014, so you can expect a little bit of glitches in it, but I don’t think there is anything which goes against it. It is a fantastic app which everyone should install in his/her phone. TinyOwl’s service is currently available only in Bangalore, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune. Soon they are going to open their service in many other cities of India. Users who want to take advantage of this can download it from Google Play Store (android based devices) and iTunes Store (iOS based devices).
