Pizza Hut Serves Up Online Orders, Adobe Air Style

Maggio 25, 2008Nat0 Comments


Gone are the days where you did something so pedestrian as pick up a phone to order a pizza. Now you can employ Pizza Hut’s new application to do the talking for you!

pizzahutapp2Adobe Air is a wonderful platform, no doubt about it. Still, who thought it would hit the mainstream quickly enough to get the attention of a multi-national restaurant chain like Pizza Hut? Jay Hathaway of DownloadSquad brings to our attention this release, which you can pull off the Web to start ordering that deep dish immediately. You can place all your usual orders as well as save some of your favorite configurations for quick repeat ordering. Perfect for the college crowd. And the startup crowd. Even the blogger crowd!

Unfortunately, it currently only supports the chain’s locations in the United States, so those of you in Japan who want a Crab & Shrimp Mayo King are out of luck for now, but perhaps the company will go international in the near future. Sitting in front of the screen this Memorial Day weekend? Like Adobe Air? Hungry? You know what to do.

Of course, in the realm of fun and useful Adobe Air apps out there, this one stands firmly in the land of the miscellaneous. And maybe it’s a nonstarter. You get the same functionality out of just ordering your pizza via the company website, so why an individual would want to clutter up their desktop with a tomato red Pizza Hut applet, we’re unsure. Nonetheless, it’s up, it’s active, so download if you must. Ping This! Ping This!
