Live Mas: Taco Bell enters 21st century with new app

Taco Bell has made a giant leap for fast food after releasing an app that allows you to order and pay for your food, then go pick it up.

At first, I was skeptical of the whole situation, but almost instantly I was swept up and cradled by the simplicity of the app; everything was so user-friendly and well organized.

The menu option showed everything they have as well as all the ingredients in every option. I have to say that this app has left me in awe.

The best part about the menu is the ever-changing pictures that scroll across the screen providing a sample of what they offer. They have done an exceptional job at attracting their target market.

After going through the menu and selecting what I wanted to purchase, it gave me the option to choose which Taco Bell location I wanted my food from. As we all know, not every Taco Bell is made in the same image.

The “My Bell” option keeps track of your favorite picks. For me, it’s the Doritos cheesy gordita crunch box and an order of cheesy fiesta potatoes. I know I can never go wrong with these options. One of the coolest parts is that the app keeps track of your location and sends you a notification when you arrive to choose whether you will be picking up your food inside or at the drive-thru. This really comes in handy around noon and dinner time when the lines can get pretty long.

So, I chose my pick up spot and entered my payment information and headed to pick up my food. I was worried they did not have all the kinks worked out and when I got my food it would be messed up, but to my surprise everything was correct. The hardest part was resisting the urge to throw my money at the window when I pulled up.

 In conclusion, if you are a Taco Bell lover then this app is for you. The simplicity and convenience this app brings is unrivaled.
