Dunkinâ€™ Donuts, the popular fast food chain famous for its coffee and baked goods, has released Dunkinâ€™ Run, a free app for the iPhone and iPod touch. Itâ€™s designed to make it easier for Dunkinâ€™ Donuts customers to make group orders â€” a social application, according to the press release.
â€œIâ€™m making a run to Dunkinâ€™ â€” does anyone want anything?â€ is a refrain heard in workplaces near where Dunkinâ€™ Donuts are common. The Dunkinâ€™ Run app and its companion Web site help to make it easier for Dunkinâ€™ customers to solicit and place those group orders.
â€œRunnersâ€ initiate the group order, then interactive alerts are sent to the Runnerâ€™s friends and co-workers, informing them when a trip is planned and inviting them to place an order online. The Runner can then print the order or use their iPhone to produce a checklist, to make sure everyone gets what they wanted. (Via Macworld)
