Although Domino’s Pizza has had an app for the UK (and Ireland) for some time now, Windows Phone users in the US have been left without a mobile option—until today.
Hurrah! Domino’s Pizza (www.dominos.com) has made a full-fledged, US-dedicated app for Windows Phone 8 that allows you to access your account, place your order (pickup/delivery) and even follow its status with Domino’s famed “tracker” service. Throw in some voice controls and a Live Tile and we’re all set for Saturday night!
Head past the break for the first images, our video tour and download link!
The app, coming in at just 1MB, has worked flawlessly for us over our brief testing period. With a quick launch, access to our account, optional GPS info for location awareness and the availability of Domino’s full online menu (including deals and coupons), we’re quite smitten with the app.
In fact, you can activate the Voice Command feature on Windows Phone 8 (hold down the Windows key) and say things like “Domino’s…start a carry out order” and the app will launch, figure out your location and then proceed to the menu for ordering. If you stored your delivery or account info, you can then place your order with just a few clicks:
- Voice ordering – From the “menu” section of the app, customers can take advantage of Window Phone’s voice capabilities to tell the app what they’d like to order. You can say “medium hand tossed pepperoni pizza,” for instance, and once the app confirms your request, you simply add it to your cart and head to checkout.
- Pin your current order – We took advantage of the ability to pin items in Windows Phone to allow customers to pin their current order right to their start screen. This will allow customers to directly access our industry-exclusive Domino’s Tracker and know where their order is throughout the pizza-making process.
The app is perfect if you’re idle on the couch or out with friends and are headed home, where you can have the Domino’s guy waiting for you upon arrival. All in all, we’re quite excited about having yet-another-official-app for Windows Phone 8 available to us and Domino’s Pizza has done a solid job here with their offering.
Pick up Domino’s Pizza for Windows Phone 8 (US ordering only) here in the Store (Link may take a few hours to go live! Be patient!). Let us know in comments your thoughts of the app!
