The new Pizza Hut India app for Windows Phone is ugly, but functional

Pizza Hut, the American restaurant chain and one of the flagship brands of Yum! Brands, Inc., known for pizzas and side dishes is a leading affordable casual dining restaurant chain in India. After making a foray into India in 1996, the chain has now 138 dining restaurants across 38 cities in India.

Pizza Hut India has launched their official app for Windows Phone 8 devices. Unfortunately, the app is just a wrapper for Pizza Hut's mobile site, and I usually hate to report apps like that. However, the app's pretty useful and works well for what it's intended for and so, I thought of looking beyond the tacky design and lazy execution.

The Pizza Hut India app is a convenient way to choose and order from your favorite pizzas and side dishes in just a few taps. The app includes a pizza tracker that allows you to track the status of your order right till your doorstep. The app saves your past orders to make it pretty easy for you to order it again real quick. Also, it stores several addresses for an easy check out each time. You can also find the nearest Pizza Hut stores around you to pickup your order or if you plan to eat out.

Download the free Pizza Hut India app for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. The app should've been better designed with a better user experience. Still, if you order in or pick up from Pizza Hut often, it's a good app to have on your phone. There are some exclusive offers as well, so give it a whirl, and let us know how you like it.
