A group of Brooklyn teens has answered every stoner's prayers, and also every non-stoner's prayers. There is now a button. For pizza. A button for pizza!
The new app, Push for Pizza, is an even easier, more mindless Seamless. Could Seamless get any easier? As someone who has been known to order an entire Indian feast before she has even realized she's woken up from her nap, I'll say I thought it couldn't. But it can!
After you've downloaded the app and input your address and credit card information (just once), this is what you do:
- Open the app
- Push the only button on the screen (it has a slice of pizza on it, you can't miss it)
- Choose cheese or pepperoni (there are no other options so you can't get too thoughtful)
Then pizza comes! It just comes!
TechCrunch has more:
Simple as it may be, it took five months to develop the app for the team of teens. The idea started as a simple web app called "Pizza Button," coded by Will Haack and Graham Carling. They brought in childhood friend Maximillian Hellerstein, who helped to shape the consumer-facing app with Cyrus Summerlin while the programmers (joined by another teen, Demitri Nava) completed the backend work, which is built on top of Delivery.com's ordering APIs.
While it's easy to scoff at the idea, these guys have turned a joke into a reasonable business model. They take a percentage of every order placed in their app, and have national reach on day one because the API they used is supported by pizzerias across the country.
You can watch the promo video the guys made below. It's pretty charming.
