Seamless for iPhone makes ordering from a restaurant for pickup or delivery a seamless experience.

Pros

Try before signing up: To start using Seamless, you simply enter an address, and you'll be served a list of restaurants in your area that'll deliver to you, so you can see if it's worth signing up for the app before you're forced to "fork over" your personal information.

Explore new restaurants: It's easy to miss a new restaurant opening, but on Seamless you'll find many of the hottest new restaurants as well as the hidden gems you might not know exist. But you'll also find all the tried-and-true chains, such as BJ's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Denny's, KFC, Olive Garden, and Red Lobster.

Different ways to search: Search by restaurants or dishes in the upper search bar or scroll down to explore Seamless' list of restaurant options. You can also search by cuisine type. Tap the Cuisines button and select from 25, organized around ethnicities, such as Italian, Mediterranean, or Tex-Mex; or food categories, such as BBQ, Dessert, and Sandwiches. You can tap just one cuisine or multiple to quickly narrow your search.

Excellent filters: Tap the Filters button to sort by delivery time frame, star rating, price, and whether the restaurant is new. Make your choices and only see results that satisfy your search criteria.

A wealth of info on each restaurant: In search results, you'll see the restaurant's title, photo, cuisine types, delivery time frame, whether there's a minimum to order, and the star rating based on the number of reviews. Tap any restaurant tile to get a complete menu, with Most Popular items up top. Tap the About tab to get address info and operating hours and Reviews to get, you guessed it, customer reviews.

Ratings and reviews: It's fun to try new restaurants -- but such a downer when they disappoint. Thankfully, Seamless provides ratings and reviews of Seamless restaurants from its robust dining community, so you'll know which restaurants to try and which to shun. You'll also get recommendations for popular items at each restaurant.

Easy order process: When you're already hangry, you're probably not in the mood to spend a lot of time, tapping and swiping in a restaurant delivery app. In Seamless, just search for an item that appeals to you, pick the restaurant to get it from, select it off the menu, and order.

Order for now or later: You can order your meal to arrive as soon as possible or pre-order your next meal to arrive up to four days in advance.

Deals and promos: You'll find exclusive promos in the Seamless app. For instance, the Trending offers near you section features restaurants offering 25 percent off deals to Seamless users. Also, your first delivery is free.

Accepts many major payment services: Seamless takes traditional credit cards, but it also takes gift cards and many of today's popular payment services, such as Apple Pay, PayPal, and Amex Express Checkout. Better yet, your last payment method is saved to be automatically used the next time you place an order.

Zero hidden fees: Any delivery fees are set by the restaurant -- same as if you ordered from them directly.

Express reorder: If you loved a meal, you can reorder it faster next time with the Express Reorder feature. Just tap Express Reorder to bring the order to checkout in a tap.

Real-time delivery updates: Feeling impatient? Easily track your order with updates and alerts from the app.

Cons

Delivery fees vary: Because Seamless doesn't have its own standard delivery fee, delivery fees are determined by the restaurants. If you prefer a one-price-fits-all approach, then this service isn't for you.

Not the most visually appealing app: If an app is selling food, in our opinion, then it should be more photo-driven, so we can see what we're getting. Seamless has photos, but they're small and less apparent than in other apps.

Grubhub clone: If you're already using Grubhub, you'll find Seamless oddly familiar looking. That's because it's owned by Grubhub and powered by the same engine. So there's nothing new here.

Lean on cuisine types: Grubhub and Eat24 each offer 50 cuisine types, but Seamless only offers half that number.

Bottom Line

Whether you're looking to try some new restaurants or are happy sticking with the old favorites, Seamless is worth considering. Unless you're already on Grubhub, that is.
