Domino's Pizza UK won the Best Food & Cooking award at the Carphone Warehouse Appys 2012 event, which recognizes development and innovation in mobile app technology.
According to WirelessDeveloperNetwork, Domino's iPhone, Android and iPad mobile ordering apps were awarded the title this week at a ceremony in London. Domino's was selected following a shortlist compiled by more than 1,000 Carphone Warehouse staff who suggested their favorite apps in the first stages of nominations.
Entries were then debated by a panel of expert judges, who selected the top five apps for each category. A public vote finally decided the overall winners.
"We're always looking for convenient new ways for our customers to order and to receive this accolade is truly amazing," said Simon Wallis, sales and marketing director of Domino's Pizza UK. "Mobile currently accounts for 14 percent of online sales and download figures for our apps continue to grow. We're sure this trend is set to continue – especially with this prestigious Appy award now under our belts."
The Appys are the UK's first major app awards, hosted by Carphone Warehouse, an independent mobile phone retailer.
