Top Rated Fast Food Apps for Windows Phone

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Fast Food Apps

Fast food restaurants can be a convenient way to get a quick bite to eat while traveling or for those times you just don't feel like cooking at the house. There are a few Windows Phone apps designed to help you located these establishments and a few that will let you order and have take-away ready for you. Now that Fitness Month has past, these apps may come in handy if you are in the mood to cheat a little and enjoy a Big Mac or large Supreme Pizza every now and then.

We've tapped a small collection of these Windows Phone apps for this week's roundup. Some of which are official apps from the fast food restaurant while others are rather nice unofficial apps. Just keep in mind some of these apps have regional restrictions but the good news is that all the apps are available for 512MB devices.

Cortana outage causes the personal voice assistant to go quiet for some users

231

Cortana is still very much in beta and as such, we should expect some mishaps during these early stages of rolling out. Tonight, for some users, that scenario is becoming a reality.

Starting in the last few hours, a few Windows Phone users are complaining that Cortana is returning a witty error message when retrieving interests, aka the personal news and weather information displayed to users upon launching. Specifically, Cortana responds with "My suggestion well is dry. Try back later or add some more interests." Likewise, when you ask Cortana a question, she may respond with "I'm sorry, the internet and I aren't talking right now." strongly suggesting that Microsoft is experiencing some server issues.

WPCentral Reader Blake Seaman presents the question and, not being not a social media user, found the Live Tiles were more than enough notification. Even pinning settings tiles to the Start Menu seemed to meet his needs.
