Creating an iPhone App for Restaurants
explain the process to an app newbie

While I myself do not own an iPhone or Droid, I'm interested in having an app developed for restaurant clients. This way, someone who is a frequent visitor to the restaurant can view their menu at any time, especially if they call for to-go orders.

I have looked at a few app developers online, some offer to create a restaurant app for as little as US$99. What I'd like to know is:

1. Do I provide the app developer with a text-based menu to use?

2. Do visitors to a restaurant site have to pay a fee to download an app?

That's a question for the developer.

Hopefully not. Hopefully they can read an RSS feed so your menu is always up to date.

2. Do visitors to a restaurant site have to pay a fee to download an app?


No, unless you charge for the app, and I'm guessing you wouldn't.

As to the fees:

If your app can be created with only RSS feeds and graphics that you provide, $95 is a reasonable fee. There are places that have this process streamlined.
