Yeee-hahhhh! A New App.
East or West Texas style. Brisket, pulled pork or ribs – whatever taste you like, this app is for you. The Texas Monthly BBQ Finder will help you locate the best barbecue eateries – in Texas and beyond. You’ll be hooked in to the community of BBQ lovers, with reviews, tips and directions. You’ll even be able to add your own flavor preferences and rib-joint reviews. This new mobile app is now available on both Android and iPhone platforms, with the Android version developed by Indy’s Boost Media, for Emmis Communications (parent company of Texas Monthly).
“Boost did a terrific job producing the Android version of our Texas BBQ Finder on a very tight schedule”, said Roy Leamon, VP Production & Technology at Texas Monthly. “We wanted it released in time for our 2011 Texas Monthly BBQ Festival, and Boost delivered. Thank you Boost!”
Meanwhile, closer to home, Boost Media (Indy’s leading mobile app developer) is leading the way in developing other taste-tempting mobile apps.
The NY Slice, one of the busiest food trucks in town, is serving authentic NY style pizza all over Indy, from a different spot each day. And thanks to a new mobile app developed by Boost Media, users can stay up to the minute on the location of their favorite pizza. This app is scheduled for release by end of 2011.
Others have jumped onto the growing list of Boost’s mobile restaurant apps – such Shapiro’s, the iconic Indy delicatessen, and Bru Burger Bar, the latest concept from Cunningham Restaurant Group. But all restaurant apps are not the same – far from it. Boost custom develops every app according to the restaurant’s strategy. For example, the forthcoming Mobile VIP app that Boost is building for Scotty’s Brewhouse will focus on customer loyalty and rewards. Boost is even developing a full-featured Dining Guide for Atlanta Monthly, another Emmis publication.
Why the growing trend?
“It just make sense”, says Boost CEO Jason Zickler “every restaurant wants to connect with their customers. Mobile apps are a great solution.”
But what does a restaurant app do for customers?
“It’s almost limitless”, says Zickler. “Menus, reservations, photos, video, recipes, VIP and rewards clubs, locations, directions. It’s your restaurant brand in the customer’s pocket.”
