Official McDonald's UK app launches on Windows Phone

The super-popular fast food outlet McDonald's has released multiple Windows Phone apps for a number of regions. The company has now launched the official app for the UK market, enabling consumers to search for nearest restaurants, get directions to selected McDonald's and even save favorite restaurants for future use. It's a neat little app that we're sure many fans will enjoy using.

As there are a large number of McDonald's restaurants available throughout the UK, it's possible to filter through listings by establishments that sport a drive thru, are open 24/7, baby changing facilities, host birthday parties, offer free Wi-Fi and more. Currently active promotions can also be viewed form within the app, perfect for those bargain hunters.

Some other highlighted features:

  • View the full McDonald’s UK menu
  • See nutrition in formation on all products, learn more about ingredients and check allergies guide
  • Create your own meal combinations
  • Discover the combined nutritional information behind your favorite meals

McDonald's

Also, since the Monopoly promotion is currently underway, you'll be able to check to see if you've won any prizes while on the move. You can grab McDonald's for the UK from the Windows Phone Store for free.

I'm lovin' it

KKRLessey says:

I see what you did there lol

PureView says:

Really? Because he was subtle.

wpguy says:

Sounds like a pretty cool app, even though when it comes to McDonald's "food" I'm not lovin' it.

The_Lord23 says:

I'm with you there...

robnewton says:

I couldn't care less about McDonalds & its shit food, but to me an official McDonalds app is possibly the biggest sign yet that WP has made it to the big time. Sky Go would be the big one though.

The_Lord23 says:

Indeed. I'm always encouraged when a 'big name' app arrives on Windows Phone

Totally need Sky Go. Come on Sky!!

CommonBlob says:

Hehe nutrition information...

nath520 says:

I see what you did there

Judas20 says:

Awesome!! Now if KFC would release an app to it would be So Good!

Judas20 says:

I never knew about that.

Food is food I'll eat what I please.

asylumxl says:

The Punisher is concerned about animal cruelty?

Nukey Pearce says:

First of all, I don't actually eat poultry as I dont like the taste. But in regards to your link - that is not related to the UK (the purpose of this article). In the UK the fast food restaurants source their food from UK plants and farms, and there is no way that UK food authorities or animal welfare organisations would allow that kind of treatment here. As stated on their "investigations" page, there was an "exposed" article for the UK. Since then KFC were investigated (the article goes back to 2003, over 10 years ago). While I am not saying that all fast food chains are sweet and innocent, the articles within that site (related to the UK) are no longer relevant.
While you may think "yeah but as an international organisation...", KFC UK and KFC International (including the US) are completely different organisations trading in their own right.
Times have changed in the last 10 years, especially when it comes to animal welfare; while there are some food restaurants that are less than scrupulous, in this case, unless there is recent evidence of KFC actively mistreating animals (with NO current pending investigations), your comment is void. For more information, read up on the Red Tractor scheme, which pushes for animal welfare rights in food production.

NIST says:

KFC chicken is a Tyson foods product. Tyson also supplies most restaurants.

Nukey Pearce says:

That only applies to the USA. In the UK, the (main) supplier for KFC is Westbridge Food Group Ltd, and has been for around 7 or 8 years. Other suppliers also include those such as "3663 Food Supplies".

tbonenga says:

Hmm this coming from The "Punisher" is funny.

nath520 says:

Ordering menu should be perfect

Big Supes says:

Sky Go, HSBC and Gumtree.... please. Please. For the love of Zod.

Al_2 says:

Big Supes says:

greedypnguin says:

For the love of zod xD I see what you did there

Big Supes says:

Sorry...I'm full of nerd references. :D

bilzkh says:

Come on McDonalds Canada (and Starbucks Canada, banks, Cineplex)

topleya says:

Now its time for Starbucks?

Chemilinski says:

Starbucks has already officially said they're developing their own official app.

This is good for the monopoly promotion, and also if you visit a new place as asking the locals where the nearest McDonalds is oft just results in their personal favourite I've found.

lippidp says:

Or you could use Tellme: Find McDonald's.

This app narrows down search criteria which both locals and indeed map apps may not know.

Ljay 263 says:

Yeeey! now lets get fat!

tbonenga says:

Not if you get the $1 side salad, $1 yogurt and free water. Actually pretty way to eat cheap and stay/get lean.

Risvall says:

pg2900 says:

bozvandam says:

Doesn't recognise either of my closest Maccy Dees which is ironic as I'm currently stood in the nearest one :(

sip1995 says:

DarwinPurol says:

Marcovitch says:

raycpl says:

Jagar Tharn says:

Who the hell eats McDonalds ?

tbonenga says:

Just about everyone. Their sign out front plainly says Billions served...

Gotta love official apps :)

People eat that shit? Do yourself a favor, don't you'll live longer.

greedypnguin says:

Screw you, Ima drink my Milkshake wherever I want xD

Agree, go to DQ at leat its their specialty, and sizes are bigger.

papanoongaku says:

hold on, so McDs is unhealthy, but going to DQ and getting an even larger milkshake* is better?

 

*contains no dairy product

rponting says:

Screw that! I would live to have smoky chicken meal with large coke and large fries! :D

tbonenga says:

Glad the UK finally has a exclusive that we in the US don't have. I hope they're happy now.

slap0rama says:

I love the bacon clubhouse burgers

AndyD33 says:

Where's all the people whining and moaning that it's UK only and there's no US app?!

 

sarcasm for those who missed it

aitt says:

Won't eat that GMO pink slime crap.

willied says:

While I find McDonald's to be disgusting, they no longer use pink slime.

aitt says:

No longer, but still use ingredients for their chicken nuggets that is used to make silly putty

willied says:

Yeah, I don't really even care what they use in their food since I'm not going to eat it either way. I have no clue why people eat at McDonald's when there are virtually always better options available. Some people just have low standards I guess.

rponting says:

Other fast food chains also suck as much as they do! But I like there way of doing business. They are on everyfucking street these days.

willied says:

Well, Chick-Fil-A is a lot better, although their ingredients are still not that great, but the quality of their food is much higher.

 

Most fast food chains do suck, but you don't have to eat at a fast food chain. The Panera Bread here has a drive-thru now, which is convenient. Unless you're just in a rush and don't want to sit down, their are plenty of good places to eat in most towns. But I generally try to eat at local restaurants. Not only is the food better, but more of your money goes towards those in your community.

aitt says:

I agree there's better options. Places like Chipotle uses natural feed beef and farm raised chicken but it comes with a price that can't compete with cheap fix like McD and Subway. I'm with you. I tend to eat local or myself. I don't want bread that's made from products used to make yoga mats. As long as company uses GMO products, fast food will continue.

willied says:

Yeah, I like Chipotle. We just got one here about a month ago. They even have some organic stuff. I just wish more restaurants would try to be like them.

RN50 says:

I wounder what the live tile does? Switch between cheese burgers and Nuggets....

ltjordan24 says:

   This app would be a waste here in the States. You can't drive five minutes in any direction without coming across a McDonald's.
