Local Food Delivery

For the upwardly mobile audience, using mobile apps to find quality restaurants in their locality serving their preferred delicacies is common and everyday behavior. An innovative app besides allowing the users to do all these can also help them with a detailed graphic layout covering all the pubs, restaurants and even street food joints in the locality.

The same app can also help them ordering foods online with simple clicks and with least minimum on-screen taps. This can really work in a much more innovative way. For example, just by zooming in a restaurant menu can be accessed along with the interior of the restaurants. Now, just like the indoor customers, you can order foods by tapping on the restaurant menu spread over the table or displayed on the wall.

Such an app can be tremendously popular among travelers, holidayers and adventurers.

Virtual App For Interior Design

An Intelligent Cooking App

Cooking App

Have you ever thought of an intelligent cooking app that can be used as a real-time guidebook for all your culinary dishes and experiments in the kitchen?

It can really be a constant guide to many home chefs and cooking enthusiasts.

A Content Identification App

How many times did it happen that you listened to a song in the jukebox of a shop or any public place and just cannot remember the song name and the singer behind it? Well, it happens quite often. There are times you come across a few sonorous lines of a text and can’t remember the name of the book or the author in spite of knowing that you read it so many times.
