Restaurant apps

The next generation of restaurant POS apps is here for you now

The restaurant business has really changed over the years. There was a time when many dining spots were basically mom and dad affairs. You ordered your food from one of them and the other would cook it to your specifications - with a bit of luck. But restaurants nowadays seem to have got bigger and more complicated and you almost need a Maitre'D in each to control the flow and to make sure that everything runs to perfection. However, it's not exactly easy to find someone who is competent and hard working enough to live up to the name these days.  More

Document, share, list and rank all your favorite things and places

There was a time when folks used to always have a small notebook or a diary tucked away in their pocket wherever they went. It was vital to keep a note of all those important things like phone numbers and addresses and to write stuff down that you didn't want to forget. At home they might keep a scrapbook to paste in photos and the like or a travel log if they'd been on vacation. I wonder if anyone does that stuff anymore - especially when you can keep all that stuff and more on an app for your iPhone in your pocket. The curiously named aRoo is a new lifestyle app for iOS where you can ...  More

Have your food ready and waiting for you at your favorite lunchtime restaurant

One of the more annoying things about eating out at a restaurant is the time it takes between getting there and actually getting your meal. As Tom Petty once said, the waiting is the hardest part. Don't think you are alone though. Most restaurants could probably fit in an extra sitting if they could cut down the time between guests arriving and actually finishing their meal. It's not quite as inconvenient in the evening when diners have more time but if they only have an hour or so for lunch it can get a bit tight, to say the least. Many will simply opt for a take out and not even bother ...  More

Review your favorite things in just a word or two and share your opinions with your friends

When you ask a friend what they thought of a movie, a book or a restaurant they've visited, the chances are the first thing will say will be short and sweet. Their first response will often come down to something simple like "it's great" or "it's rubbish" before going on to describe it in more detailed terms. While its hardly a detailed response, once they've delivered those fateful initial couple of words, your mind will be made up pretty quickly as to it's worthiness. As the Impressions once sang..."First impressions are lasting impressions..."  More

Cut your restaurant paperwork down to just 15 minutes a day

When you first got into the restaurant business you probably knew there was going to be a fair amount of paperwork involved.

FobeSoft is a restaurant management application that was created by people who have over thirty years of experience in the food industry. It provides a daily profit and loss statement that gives you a snapshot of where your business stands financially and shows you ...  More

Everything you need to run your retail shop or restaurant

I asked a retail owner friend of mine the other day how long she spent on 'paperwork' in her three salons and she reckoned it was close-on a day a week. She told me that she would have to laboriously plough through Excel spreadsheets and various notepads for hours every week diligently copying the nightly information from store to head office. I was telling her then that, with the right apps, she could run her entire business from her smartphone and cut her 'paperwork' time in half. Bizimply is the perfect app to illustrate that. It provides an online platform to manage your daily business ...  More

New York is so good they named it twice, according to Frank Sinatra. There has been so much written about the place over the years and it is still one of the must-visit cities in the world. Every travel application features it amongst their top cities but most of them just show you the highlights and obvious tourist places. While its essential to touristy visit places like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Chrysler building and the Statue of Liberty it is just as interesting to see the stuff the locals see. CitydopingNYC is a new iOS app created by New Yorkers that acts as an 'insiders guide' to ...  More

Localize your London entertainment guide

London is a very big city and on any given week there is something like 600 concerts to choose from featuring everything from Irish folk to top 40 to the very best classical orchestras in the world. There's also around 30 different theatrical performances playing not to mention the 11000 bars and restaurants at your disposal. So if you are a visitor to the 'Big Smoke,' as it used to be known, it's almost a full time job to research where to go. You could pick up a copy of Timeout and a bunch of other mags or log on to any number of websites but even then, it's not easy to keep up to ...  More
