Windows Phone 7 has finally got its very own official Pizza Hut app and it really does look delicious. It is always a nice boost for the somewhat struggling WP7 platform when a popular brand launches its official app for it. Pizza Hut is one of the most popular eat-out places in the world today. But there’s a slight catch here. Pizza Hut might be popular equally all over the world, but the WP7 app is for US only. If you are a WP7 user in the US, read on to find out everything about this new app.
While using the app, you have two options. You can either create an account for the app or use it as a guest. If you choose the “guest” option, you will be able to do everything with the app except placing an order (you can still call any outlet by searching for it and hitting the call button at the bottom). In addition to placing the order, you can look for Pizza Hut outlets near you, and even view the detailed menu to scour for any food item you might want, which is helpful in making choices beforehand and getting a general idea as to how much one will have to spend.
You can also view the tweets from Pizza Hut’s official page within the app.
So that’s pretty much all you can do without creating a new account (which is a lot), but with an account, which is free just like the app itself, you can create a custom pizza and then order it right from the app. You can order the pizza to be delivered or you can notify any branch that you intend to eat there or will take a carry-out. While making a custom pizza, you get to choose its size, toppings, sauce, just about everything. Using the app you can order anything available at Pizza Hut and not just pizza. After choosing each item, just keep adding it to your order cart and the app will keep calculating the total order price, inclusive of taxes.
When you are done deciding your order, you have to fill out a form with your contact, delivery and payment information. You have to do all this just the first time; after that, an account is created for you.
The app is available for free on the Windows Phone Marketplace and is a must-have for all pizza lovers in the US.
