Caviar App Allows You to Order Delivery From Local Restaurants

Depending on where you live prepared food delivery can be limited to cuisine such as Chinese or pizza, but with the new Caviar app for iOS devices you can now get dishes from your favorite local restaurants delivered right to your door. The app allows users to browse photos from a wide variety of local restaurants like your neighborhood greasy spoon or upscale establishments. Users can then place orders for food delivery from places that normally wouldn't offer such services and track their order to their door.


The app is free to download, but Caviar charges a $4.99 delivery fee, according to its website. You will also be charged 18 percent for gratuity and have to agree to the TOS which uses cookies to collect information.

iOS App of the Week: Live Colors for Kids

The app includes 20 animated coloring pages and a blank template for children to use to create their own drawings. A pleasant voice not only walks users through the game but it also names each color as it is used so smaller children can learn to identify them. The game also teaches users how to create new colors using the app's built-in color mixing palette. Other features include an auto save option so you can finish your drawings later, the ability to share your child's creations on social networks and the ability to print finished masterpieces.
