AWARD-WINNING MENUPAGES APP COMES TO ANDROID
New York, NY, February 22, 2011 – MenuPages.com (http://www.menupages.com/), the comprehensive online restaurant and menu resource serving eight major markets across the U.S., has launched an Android version of its popular mobile app. The app is free and available from the Android Market here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.MenuPages.
The intuitive and cleanly-designed app lets users submit what they’re looking for (type of cuisine, restaurant name, specific dish) and where (current location from GPS or a specific neighborhood or address), pulling up a map or list of restaurants that can be further refined by price, feature (e.g. outdoor seating, kid friendly), or meal (e.g. breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner). Results can then be sorted by popularity, distance, rating and price. All listed restaurants (nearly 30,000 across eight markets) have comprehensive menus along with all the useful information diners need (address, phone number, hours, price point, credit cards accepted, etc.). Users can call the restaurant or book online reservations (via OpenTable) directly from the app, and can save favorite restaurants in a seamless integration with the “My MenuPages” feature on MenuPages.com.
The upcoming NBC series America’s Next Great Restaurant, premiering on Sunday, March 6 (8-9 p.m. ET), is the app’s launch sponsor. The series stars Bobby Flay, Curtis Stone, Steve Ells and Lorena Garcia as investors who will choose an original restaurant concept to invest in and open in three locations across the country.
Since its debut in January 2010, the MenuPages iPhone app has had over 280,000 downloads and been awarded an Ad Age Media Vanguard Award and nominated for a MIN Best of the Web Award.
The MenuPages app is available in all eight U.S. markets covered by the website (New York City, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, South Florida, and Washington DC). MenuPages serves menus for nearly 30,000 restaurants, from five-star establishments to neighborhood pizza shops, with 3,000-5,000 menu updates every month. MenuPages and Grub Street, the affiliated award-winning food and restaurant blog (http://grubstreet.com/), attract over 2.6 million unique users per month (Omniture SiteCatalyst, August 2010 – January 2011).
