Foodyo provides a new and easier way to order food from your favorite local restaurants - simply type or speak your order in your own words.
NOTE: CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN NEW YORK CITY (MANHATTAN) ONLY
It uses Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence to create a fun, fast, and efficient ordering alternative to the existing approaches.
With other solutions, users spend a lot of time scrolling through endless list of restaurants and menu options, looking for those that have the best ratings, that will deliver quickly and at a good price, and from which they can order everything they want all at the same time.
With Foodyo, just type or speak your order and where it should be delivered. The app takes this natural language input and converts it to a structured order which is routed to our partner restaurant network (Delivery.com) for fulfillment. It eliminates the need to scan among dozens of cuisines, hundreds of menus, and even more items and item options. Just tell Foodyo what you want, and you get the most optimal version of your order from the most optimal restaurant within minutes.
This is great if you….
* Are more interested in finding the best solution for the food you crave than which restaurant it comes from
* Are in a hurry and welcome the opportunity to order from wherever you are online
* Don’t have good access to or inclination to use a keyboard (e.g., if driving)
EXAMPLE: Say you’re in the mood for pizza and salad. With current online delivery sites you will likely be presented with dozens (or more) restaurant cuisines, and even more menus. The tendency is to want to pick the best one, which takes time. This can turn into a research project, with a user trying to figure out the best combination of distance, ratings, and cost. Then the shopping cart needs to be filled. With Foodyo, just type (or speak) something like “1 large cheese pizza, 1 salad with French dressing, 1 can diet coke”, and you’re done. We optimize for highest rated, closest, best priced restaurant.
Ratings and Reviews
Excellent, novel new app
Very cool app. Still playing with the voice part of it, but typing in the order free form worked well. My order got well matched to a nearby restaurant. Not aware of any other app or website that lets you use regular language to do this without going through all the food, restaurant, category, etc. selections. I can see this coming in handy a lot. Only shortcoming for me is that it’s only in Manhattan right now. But I haven't seen much innovation in ordering food online in quite awhile (before this), and I think this one has a lot of potential.
Restaurant delivery on steroids!
It's about time somebody came up with this idea- simply put, it's the lowest priced, best food, closest to you. Built for no nonsense folks who know what they want, asap! Those big restaurant delivery companies better jump on the wagon cuz this one's just set the bar higher! 'Nuff said.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
