In general, any phone with a large touchscreen is considered a smartphone, like the iPhone, Android, as well as some Nokia and Blackberry phones. These phones can visit websites, and if the website has been made to work with smartphones it will automatically make the content fit nicely. Most websites do not do that, and some don’t work with smartphones. Menuito is for those websites that have problems on smartphones.
Menuito creates a second mini-website just for smartphones. When Menuito is installed, smartphones are automatically shown an attractive and very easy to browse website. The Manager's Console lets managers or owners change the information without web programming or paying someone to do it.
No, but there is a 100 day money back guarantee.
No, Menuito is an application that you run on your own server. We do not have plans to offer Menuito as a hosted service as our goal is to make it easy to maintain your own mobile website.
No, Menuito is software that lives on the same computer (web host) as an existing restaurant website.
Yes. Though our themes are not yet optimized to make the best use of tablets like the iPad, they often have the same needs as smartphones so Menuito shows your mobile site to tablets. We will introduce optimized themes that make better use of tablets in the near future, and those updates will be automatically delivered to existing customers.
Basically you just need an existing website: Menuito does not require a database and will not increase your monthly web hosting costs. Your web host must support PHP 5 or higher (most do). You will also need access to your web host name and password. If in doubt, ask your web person or web hosting company, or contact us.
Menuito will work for any iPhone, Android-based phone, Windows Phone 7 or Blackberry touchscreen device. The Blackberry Torch has some known issues with minor features of a Menuito mini-site.
Menuito is designed to only be a companion to a full restaurant website. If your customers are always mobile, like a taco truck or coffee house, you could go Menuito-only but it’s not recommended.
Yes, Menuito does not change your existing website's contents at all. Visitors using smartphones have different information needs from those using regular web browsers. Menuito makes it possible to serve each audience exactly what they need.
Each Menuito license comes stock themes, and other themes can be added. Changing a theme is done by choosing a different one from the list and clicking Save. The entire site will instantly change to the new look. Our themes are built openly, so an outside web designer to create a custom look for you. Menuito also offers a Style Match custom theme service, for a custom-made theme based on your existing website.
Yes. Style Match is offered when you buy Menuito, but if you're not sure you can hold off. In the Menuito Manager's Console is a place to order Style Match if you decide later that you do want it. The price is the same as at purchase.
All the look and feel aspects are managed through CSS coding. If you know CSS, you will find changing themes straightforward. However, there is no point and click interface for changing single parts of themes or adding logos. We made this decision to ensure that every diner visiting with a smartphone sees a great looking and working mobile website.
It’s possible, but not recommended, because it’s important to tailor the information you show to mobile customers for small screen reading. Instead of squeezing a full menu onto a small screen, we focus on communicating what to expect from each menu. Think of how you’d describe a menu to someone on the phone or at their table: you wouldn’t just read the whole thing to them.
Menuito has spaces to describe 6 signature items per menu. These are specially formatted so the items you want to promote on each menu jump out to customers.
Each Menuito license is for one website (like www.myrestaurant.com). Using Menuito on multiple website addresses requires multiple licenses. You can request a transfer of your license to a new website address, but transfers are limited to one per year. Contact support if you need a transfer..
We intend to offer a reseller program in the very near future. Resellers are encouraged to offer value-added services like setup and custom themes. If you would like to be notified when the reseller program opens, join our newsletter or write to hello@Menuito.com.
