Taco Bell is planning to launch an app later this year for smartphones that will allow customers to order ahead of time, before they venture to a nearby location, according to the food news authority Nation’s Restaurant News. The app is said to have been in development for two and a half years.

Mobile smartphone apps have proven popular for Domino’s Pizza, allowing customers to customize, place and even track the status of their order without needing to make a phone call. The report also reveals that Chick-fil-A and McDonald’s are working on similar applications, but no specific functionality or timetables for respective releases were revealed.

    Aren’t fast food restaurants fast enough?? Taco Bell is practically throwing your order at you when you go in & place the order. I guess we just can’t get fat enough fast enough.

    My guess is that it is prepaid – like the Starbucks app.

    This will be handy, because I can’t stand that one minute wait after my order. Now if only I can get someone to shove the food in my mouth. Technology to the rescue!

    It makes sense from a tech point of view, but I don’t really understand the appeal of fast food Mexican when there are so many other/better choices in town.

    Speaking of that, has there ever been any update on Los Gallos?
    I thought they were reopening once DailyGrind two opened up and got running.
