Food truck app hitting the market
Published: April 18, 2012
With new food trucks and food-truck parks popping up all over town, it's hard to keep track of them all. Sweb Development*, a mobile application development company in San Antonio, has an app for that. In an all-day development session recently, the group devised the concept for the app, designed the logo, built the mobile site, and submitted to the app store. Food trucks can sign up to get access to the site's database and update their location up to a week in advance. Consumers can use the app to find a truck's location, search by type of food, whether it's cash-only, and if it's pet-friendly. The Android app is coming out this week, iPhone's version will follow in a couple weeks. However, the web and mobile site is already up at safoodtruckfinder.com.
Speaking of mobile apps, G&G Mobile Bistro, which closed in 2011 after being open only about a year, returned last week. The gourmet food truck will be open many weekends, serving prix fixe menus, but no a la carte pricing. Follow the truck on Facebook to find out when it's open next.
