Order up a meal with iTakeaway on the iPhone

Australian-designed application iTakeaway lets you order a range of fast food from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

An Australian-designed application that allows users to order take away food via an iPhone, iPod Touch or Apple iPad launched this week.

iTakeaway is a free application available through the Apple App Store and offers users access to menus from restaurants that have registered with the app's developers. Currently, more than 300 restaurants are part of the service.

Customers can place an order and make their purchase on the spot, or they can have the food delivered to them if they live nearby. Orders can be placed with any listed restaurant up to seven days in advance.

The chief executive of iTakeaway, Tony Peter, said the app was designed to simplify takeaway operations for both the user and restaurateur.

"We felt there was a need to develop apps for this market. We thought there was a very large gap for this as more and more people need to order their food from home," he said. "The Apple platform is an extension on our capabilities. All the information for restaurants and take away places is on our Web site; if they have registered with us they can hop online and change any prices, information or menu list as they please."

"This was all developed for small to medium-sized companies who couldn't afford to make similar apps themselves," Peter explained. "While we were developing this app, Pizza Hut and Dominos released their apps, so we were always established to get this to the mass market."

iTakeaway is one of the first takeaway food service apps available on the iPad.

Restaurants and takeaway stores can register to the service by contacting iTakeaway through its Web site.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
