While the Pizza Hut iPhone application is nothing revolutionary, it adds an element of interactivity that has been missing from picking up the phone and placing an order.
Billed as the “killer app for your appetite,” Pizza Hut’s mobile app allows you to place an order for pick up, carry out, or to dine in at any of its nearby locations (US only). Pizza, pasta and wings are a couple of finger strokes away. You also can peruse coupons or special deals.
Ordering food through the app is pretty fun. You can do things like stretch a pizza with your fingers to change its size, and you can toss toppings onto it with a simple flick of the wrist. Just don’t get too carried away; it will let you select up to eight toppings.
While you weigh the benefits of adding onions, Italian sausage and pineapple on your pie, you’re also given the option of choosing established specialty pizzas like Pepperoni Lover’s and Super Supreme. It can even store recent orders to speed the process that much more. Using a guest checkout, you don’t even have to signup for ordering a pizza. I mostly eat pizza when I have a pizza eating mood but someone else might find it useful that orders can be made up to seven days in advance. The best thing is that reordering a pizza just takes 5 taps which can be done in less than 10 seconds.
