We get some criticism from people for liking Domino’s Pizza (because we live in New York) but let’s be clear: Domino’s is pretty delicious and serves a roll in our culinary selection on occasion. It’s like what Taco Bell is to Mexican food—it’s not the same or better, just different.
So with that preamble, we’re excited and miffed to see the official Domino’s app get updated for Windows Phone 8—with some killer features too. The bad news is it’s only for the UK and Ireland, which as an American I find…odd.
What’s new in version 220.127.116.11 just released to the Store today? Glad you asked.
- Live tile notifications – these tell you the latest deals on offer from your nearest store!
- Voice command – you can start the app with a simple voice command, including: “Domino's Pizza, I am hungry”, “Domino's Pizza” or “Domino's feed me”
- NFC - you can redeem vouchers by tapping on any flyer, poster or other Domino’s Pizza NFC-tagged print material!
Call us crazy, but that sounds like a pretty rocking app update. In addition, you can still browse their menu, place orders, track your delivery and get updates on deals.
So why is this not in the US, the home of Domino’s? We have no idea. They do have iOS and Android apps and clearly they are dabbling in Windows Phone (the 7.x version came out a year ago) but we have no idea why they would be so obstinate in releasing one for the States.
Anyway, if you’re in the UK and Ireland and like to indulge in some Domino’s pizza (we won’t judge) you’ll want to pick up the Windows Phone 8 version here in the Store. Thanks, Benjamin C., for the tip!
Oh and for our US residents, the best we can do for you is PapaHutNo’s Pizza app, which boasts that it
“…makes it easy to find the closest Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, and/or Domino's pizza location. In addition, its Deal Feed function merges each chain's Facebook feed, making it easy to find out what the latest promotions are. Health information about the pizza options is only a couple clicks away, as are online ordering screens.”
You can pick up PapaHutNo’s Pizza here in the Store for all Windows Phones.
