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.

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.
