Berlin, January 20th, 2016 — The recently released foodora app has been featured on Apple’s “Best of 2015” list in Germany. The list, which is selected by editorial teams within Apple and also from the tops of Apple’s charts on iTunes, represents the best content of the year in the categories “Apps”, “Music”, “Podcasts”, “TV & Movies”, and “Podcasts & iTunes U”. The “Best of 2014: Apps” list included popular apps such as Uber, BuzzFeed, and 1Password.
The foodora app, which is available on iOS and Android in most foodora markets, allows users to view high-quality restaurants near them, select which dishes they’d like, and place an order. They can also customize that order and track its progress through the preparation and delivery stages.
The app integrates seamlessly with our web platform, allowing users to switch effortlessly between their smartphones and the internet.
We extremely excited to have been selected as one of the top apps of 2015,” said Jani Kiilunen, Mobile Product Lead at foodora. “Our core focus is to create an intuitive and easy to use app while keeping the focus on our users. We are still a young company but we always aim to be ahead of the competition with new and innovative, user-focused features.”
foodora was launched in Germany in October 2014, backed by Rocket Internet in April 2015 and merged with Delivery Hero in September 2015. The on-demand delivery service currently connects high-quality restaurants and foodies in over 10 countries and is changing the way food delivery is viewed and experienced globally.
How does foodora work
Through the foodora website or via the new iOS and Android apps, customers can enter their postal code and view a curated list of restaurants serving their neighborhood. Once they have found their meal of choice, they can place the order in the comfort of their home or office, paying online through foodora’s secure platform. The order is then carefully prepared by the restaurant, picked up by the foodora logistics team and delivered to their doorstep in around 30 minutes.
