Capetonians are rejoicing as UberEATS has officially launched in the Mother City, after operating in Johannesburg for some time.
Such was the buzz around the launch that UberEATS was one of the top Twitter trends in South Africa.
So what is the app exactly?
It is an offshoot of the Uber transport app where users can get food from local restaurants delivered to them.
The app taps into Uber's existing network and allows food orders and deliveries from partner restaurants.
It also uses your Uber account so that you do not need to set up a new one.
But despite its Cape Town launch, there's a catch - the service is only available in some of Cape Town. Using the app in an area such as Upper Claremont for example shows a 'coming soon' message.
According to the map on the Cape Town EATS site, the service covers Camps Bay, Green Point, the Waterfront and the CBD. Anything further south or east is not included.
This presents an opportunity for other food delivery services to have more time to establish a foothold in the face of Uber's significant competition.
There are currently other food ordering apps, such as OrderIn, which have a more widespread network.
OrderIn is actually our preferred food delivery app currently due to the efficient service and cheap delivery fees.
However there are a variety of food delivery apps out there currently, new and old. We would suggest trying a few to see which you prefer.
And if you're still set in your old ways, there's still the MrD app for the long-established Mr Delivery service.
