GrubHub, a Web and mobile service that simplifies online ordering for restaurant delivery and pickup, has launched a revamped Android app.
The GrubHub Android app allows diners to order food on the go from more than 5,000 restaurants in 13 cities with more cities to be added.
"Not too long ago, finding and ordering anything more exotic than pizza or Chinese was difficult, to say the least," said Mike Evans, GrubHub co-founder and COO. "It's a lot easier these days thanks to more efficient mobile food apps. Between GrubHub's new Android app and our iPhone app, diners can easily order food from home, work or whatever local watering hole they are at."
The new app lets diners use their phones' GPS capabilities to scan their current locations for all the nearby restaurants that deliver. They can also narrow their search by cuisine or search for a specific restaurant or menu item.
The app features thousands of reviews to help diners make decisions. Additionally, GrubHub's Android app will save the address, payment info and order details to make reordering easier.
Evans said the company anticipates orders coming from mobile apps to comprise 25 percent of sales by the end of the year.
The app is free to download from the Android Market. It is also free for diners to order online at GrubHub.com.
