Feeling peckish? Order lunch with the official SUBWAY Windows Phone app

The popular food chain SUBWAY has released an official Windows Phone app for the UK. The franchise is a popular destination for the general public who rather enjoy fresh sandwiches with more choice than what's on offer at local supermarkets. Fancy ordering lunch without moving from your seat? Now you can with the SUBWAY app.

The app unfortunately only covers Greater London for the time being, but it's stated within the app that more regions will be added over time (we couldn't imagine the company limiting access to just a single city). The SUBWAY app is particularly useful for consumers who actively utilise the SUBWAY SUBCARD.

The SUBCARD can be added to the app, which creates a digital version of the loyalty card, enabling consumers to collect points when purchases are made at an outlet. These points can then be exchanged for rewards. To locate the nearest SUBWAY, the app sports a locator that enables users to search for SUBWAY outlets by name as well as location.

As well as finding out which SUBWAY is nearest, the official Windows Phone app allows users to place an order for pick up, specifying the outlet and pick up time, which will then open up the menu. The app will then walk the user through available sandwich types, sizes, toppings, seasonings, drinks, sides and more).

The order will then be available for pick up at the specified outlet, which makes this a handy tool for use by those who work in the big smoke, in an office and require a way to get lunch ready in a matter of seconds while also keeping lunch time to a minimum. As noted above, the app is currently restricted to Greater London, but there are plans to add more regions in the future.

You can download SUBWAY from the Windows Phone Store. via: AAWP

  • No! Got me hungry! Too bad I live in Mississauga :(
  • Cool, would definitely use this if they did add more locations.
  • Can anybody confirm if Subway app on other platforms has similar limitations of regions or not? I'm trying to think how hard it is to add locations on one platform and not on others - development POV.
  • It does say in the app, " Additional regions coming soon "
  • I mean do other platforms get stuff added later on too?
  • Subway is anything but fresh!
  • Lol, exactly.
  • Indeed.
  • the regional localisation in this and dominos app sucks
  • what do you mean? I use the Dominos app all the time, and it knows where I am, my nearest store etc.
    Works fine wherever I am. Whats broken?
  • I can get dominoes through the app in my location but found it a bit of a pain to use. Only tried the once mind...good to see more apps coming!
  • I think of it as a beta and London as its test bed. Hope they roll out other regions quickly.
  • I think of London as a foreign place in the UK.
  • lolol
  • Ive used the dominos app in London loads of times. It always works perfectly
  • Works great outside of London too, its a well designed app.
  • I was wondering if "peckish" was a British term and sure enough, it was. Learn something new every day!
  • We use it in Canada as well.
  • No kidding? I learned TWO things today, then ;-)
  • We use it in the US, too... Or, at least, I have and I'm pretty sure I've heard it used on a few TV shows.
  • Nice. Now make it work in Toronto Canada.
  • 2 1/2 years later & this app still hasn't expanded
  • And wpc is just now reporting on it...odd in both cases.
  • Dominos program works fine in Wales.
  • Anyone got this app to work yet? I just see an error trying to retrieve the virtual subcard
  • London metro only!? How much sense does that make!? :(
  • Can't load my subcard onto it.
  • If that app comes stateside I'm in trouble.
  • It hasn't in years, but I'm with you if it does lol
  • It's available now, but locations are still within London. An American with a Lumia 920 at a Subway already! ^_^
  • Even though I live in the US, I had to install this to revisit some of the mouthwatering flavors I tasted that Subway offers over there and not here. Now I'm hungry! :D
  • I'd rather eat the scum on the bottom of my shoe. Subway is truly disgusting.
  • go ahead...!!!
  • How 'bout I do neither and eat somewhere that doesn't smell like throwup?
  • Go ahead and try. I'll just throw up at wherever you say you'll eat.
  • I have not been able to able to download my subcard details...there are others with the same problem.
  • Sweden pllllzzz! :-\
  • Why not the US? SubWay is the largest food chain here...yes, there are more SubWays than McDonalds!
  • Doesn't install on WP7.
  • One more app I have like my iPhone friends
  • The loyalty card part of this app is not limited to Greater Londen. Used it today in a Bristol store and it was accepted.
  • It would be nice if the US could get some love from this app, but I'm sure it's coming..
  • UK is rocking the WP8 love this week... Soooo happy. I will be testing the app at the weekend ;)
