When it comes to food and drinks, Singapore takes the cake. There are 2,712 restaurants, 477 fast food stores, 450 food caterers, and over 4,000 establishments where you can eat delicious meals and top it off with tasty beverages.
With these many establishments in the country, you can’t even begin to imagine what you have and haven’t tasted. Technology is making everything accessible, especially food and drinks, as you can get your favorite dishes without having to step out of the comforts of your home. Today, we will be reviewing the top three food and drink mobile apps in Singapore:
In the number one spot on the Google Play Store is GrabFood – Food Delivery App by Grab Holdings. It is one of the fastest growing services for food delivery, with over 500,000 downloads.
Although GrabFood is a separate app, you still need to download Grab – Transport, Food Delivery, Payments, as it grabs the data from the latter. A large number of new apps have a small tutorial, where you can learn how to use all the features. Even though this app is quite simple to use, we believe this would be extremely helpful to users.
The user interface of the app is simple, which is great, as it has an extremely small learning curve. In the main screen of the app, all the important options are right in front of you. For example, if you want to search for different cuisines, dishes or restaurants, there is an icon on the top left corner of the screen.
Similarly, you can access the main by either tapping on or swiping from the hamburger icon. Once you add food to the cart, the app will give you the estimated time of arrival, another useful feature. You can also add additional instructions, to make it easier for food delivery. One of the biggest advantages of GrabFood – Food Delivery App is there is no minimum order.
Taking second place is none other than honestbee: Grocery delivery & Food delivery, which boasts over 1,000,000 downloads on the Google Play Store. It is another delivery service where you can get groceries, food, tickets, and even laundry.
According to the developers of the app, you can get delivery of your products on the same day, while you can get groceries within an hour. Also, there is no delivery charge, if the value of your cart is above a certain amount.
Out of all the apps, this is one of the easiest to use, thanks to its minimalistic user interface. For starters, they have removed the hamburger icon, and instead went for the bottom app bar. If you want to cycle between what is available, you can swipe through the options from the top of the screen.
It’s good to know that this app makes use of the material design to improve the user experience. For instance, if you go to the food section of the app, all the categories are arranged properly with large icons. There is a search option, which you can use if you are unable to find certain things on the app. If you want to pay or receive payment through the app, you can use QR codes, another useful feature of this app. The app is responsive at all times, even if you try to scroll through all the options as quickly as possible.
If you face any problems while using the app, you can always get in touch with the customer support through the chat icon, on the top right corner of your screen. Also, the chat becomes a bubble, and you can move it around the screen, as long as you are on the app.
Paprika Recipe Manager
Although the Paprika Recipe Manager has been around for a long time, it continues to be the top app in the Google Play Store, under the paid category. There are a lot of recipe managers out there, but none are as effective or efficient as Paprika Recipe Manager.
Right off the bat, you will find it quite easy to use this app, thanks to its simple user interface. The developers of this app have been adding several features to increase its functionality and value to users. While following the instructions of specific recipes, you can interact with the elements. For instance, it has an innovative converter, which you will find extremely useful.
It allows you to save the recipes you enter in the app, which becomes helpful when you are planning meals or going shopping for ingredients. There are individual timers for all the recipes, another feature which highlights why this app continues to remain popular among its users.
