Yesterday, I submitted the final spec to our lead developer for building WacoFork Mobile, a mobile app for accessing all of the restaurant listings, ratings and reviews on WacoFork.com. This has been in the works for a couple of months, and now we're really kicking development into high gear. The first version of the app will be for all iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android devices. This app will make it easier than ever to figure out "Where you wanne eat?"
With WacoFork Mobile v1.0, you will be able to find Waco restaurants by category, top rated, most favored and most reviewed restaurants. You will also be able to do simple and advanced searching. Each listing will include the name, address and phone number of the restaurant along with a map to the restaurant using Google Maps.
Version 2.0 will include the ability to log in, rate and review restaurants, and add restaurants to your list of favorites. With version 3.0, we will include location check-ins as well as deals at local restaurants.
We're really excited about this app, and we can't wait to reveal it later this summer. If you have any suggestions for app features, feel free to post them here, or send us an email and let us know.
Oh, and since I have your attention, as of the time of this writing, there are only 8 registered user spots left for our 4x200 sweepstakes. If you haven't registered yet, you'd better hurry up before the spots run out! Here's a link to the registration form to make it easy for you.
Also, don't forget to get a FREE ticket to our 4x200 Celebration, where we will award one lucky person the grand prize iPad 2. You don't have to be present to win it, but it'd be a lot cooler if you were. For those who don't win the iPad, there's free pizza, a chance to get a WacoFork t-shirt, and other door prizes.
