The EatNow mobile app is now available on Android devices

Android device users can now order takeaway food from a choice of more than 2,500 restaurants using EatNow’s award-winning mobile app in Australia.

Whether consumers are on the move or relaxing on the couch, ordering takeaways has never been easier than with the EatNow mobile app, now available to download for Android users from or Google Play.

Launched in 2012, the app wowed users of Apple’s iOS devices with its features, extensive choice of restaurants and convenience. The app won the prize for Best App at the 2013 Online Retail Industry Awards.

EatNow said it is confident that the Android launch will be equally well received.

“We’ve had a really positive response to our iOS app with 25 per cent of all orders placed via this channel,” said Matt Dyer, EatNow Founder. “The Android launch is the next step for us to make sure even more people can use and benefit from our service at anytime, anywhere,” he said.

The EatNow app allows users to enter their chosen suburb. Users are then offered a variety of cuisines with pick-up or delivery options. Search features include filters by cuisine, rating or distance making it easy and simple to order. EatNow also offers a best price guarantee so customers can benefit from special deals and discounts.

EatNow said the app is also useful for restaurants, which can benefit from reduced staff time spent taking orders and fewer errors when the app is used as an interface.

EatNow is part of The Catch Group but follows a distinct model compared with the other brands in the Group’s portfolio as it does not handle stock. Instead EatNow is a platform for comparing what different restaurants have to offer, with the additional facility for consumers to place orders directly via the website.
