Zomato is popular service to search for and discover great places to eat. Available in over 10,000 cities across 22 countries (including now the U.S.), the service gives you recommendations for restaurants in your area and lets you look at menus, pictures, contact info, and directions along with user reviews. In recent times, Zomato is extending the dining experience with services like online ordering, cashless payments, and table reservations in some markets.
While Zomato always had a great app for Windows Phone, the company has just launched their Universal Windows App for Windows 10 (We told you so!). The app is somewhat limited at the moment, and the social features will follow in the upcoming updates.
The app features a responsive design, and the intuitive user experience works well on all screen sizes. The search works nicely, and you can use the search filters to narrow down results to find exactly what you're craving for if you're hungry. Right on the home screen there is a beautifully designed and carefully curated Collections area that showcases the best of your city while you can also quickly access the list of your recently viewed restaurants.
As the Windows Phone 8.1 app, the new Zomato app packs in lock screen support with thousands of food photos to jazz up your lock screen. It's a foodies' delight, really. The app now adds the ability to keep a track of latest offers and promos from your favorite restaurants through the Live Tiles.
Zomato is one of my favorite apps not just for its utility and user experience, but also for the fact that the app continues to get unfailing developer love with frequent updates. It's a great app if you eat out or order in often, and a definite pin to your Start screen if you are on 'eat to live' side of the fence. Give it a whirl on your Windows 10 device or your phone if you're running a preview Windows 10 Mobile build, and let us know how you like it.
