Zomato gets another quick update, adds Collections and more

Zomato is a popular restaurant finder Windows Phone app that gives you recommendations for restaurants in your area and lets you look at menus, pictures, contact info, and directions. The app allows you to check ratings and reviews of restaurants which you can search for by location, cuisine, or name.

Available in 41 cities across the United Kingdom, India, Brazil, the UAE, New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, Turkey, Portugal, the Philippines, Qatar, and Sri Lanka, the Windows Phone app was recently updated to version 5 with a complete design and user experience refresh.

The app has now been updated to version, and brings in some interesting new features. The app now features Collections helping you with the best places to address a certain mood or use-case. You can browse through the new Collections if you're looking for that special something or are just lazy to search. The app also brings back revamped Trending Restaurants as part of Collections.

You can look up recently viewed restaurants within the app in case you can’t remember the name of the restaurant you looked earlier in the day. The latest update also brings the ability to easily attach photos you've already posted on Zomato to the reviews you write.

The app can be downloaded for free on Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. You can also download the app for your Windows 8 devices from the Windows Store (opens in new tab). If you eat out or order out often, download the app, and pin it to your Start screen. Let us know how you like it.

  • This app is extremely well done!

  • Still supporting 7.x :O
  • :)
  • No SD card support :(
  • Yup...i hate that too...
  • Gunjan and Rangan, Thanks for pointing this out, we'll be working on bringing the SD card support in the next update. Do send us more feedback on windows_at_zomato_dot_com.
  • It did support SD installation in prior versions. So why the change?   And its not a small app, its install size of 75 MB. This is not a small amount AT ALL.  
  • Seems Faster...
  • I am not able to see today's update in store
  • Maybe you've already updated. Just like me
  • Hi, If you can see the collections listed on the homepage, you're already on the latest version. In case you're still facing any problems getting the update drop us a line at windows_at_zomato_dot_com
  • Plz bring Sd card support..its a big update..thanks
  • This app looks great, I'm enjoying it. Is it just me or is there no live tile support for restaurant pics etc on the start screen?
  • I really like this app, and it is very well done. Few features that I've always thought that should be available with this app are:- 1.) Sharing just the contact number of the restaurant via SMS/What'sApp etc. The only share feature that is available at the mment is the full restaurant listing with no ability to just copy the contact number and send it across. 2.) Ability to share & pin the map/location of the restaurant. These 2 features would really enahnace the experience for the app on WindowsPhone 
  • Getting better with each update.
  • I usually use Foursquare for that stuff but this looks good.
  • not seeing in the Windows Store for my Surface.
