Ritual is what should be done. It’s what we do on a regular base because life seems somehow wrong without it. It may be religious or secular celebration traditions, the way we show respect to each other... and to ourselves. The company named Ritual.co offers an easy way to simplify ritualized daily meals in restaurants or cafes.
By ordering online, you save your time you used to spend waiting. The app automatizes the ordering process and makes your way to the spot easier. The name means that its usage will become for you an everyday ritual like brushing your teeth or scheduling your work meetings.
Interface — 5/5
It’s easy enough not to get confused. One tap will help you to select the food you’d like today and find the place somewhere near where you can have it.
Then you select the time and contact the operator to specify the details.
If you have an Apple Watch or Wear OS device, using Ritual.co is a complete pleasure. It displays notifications about anything important. It will notify you when it’s time to be on your way to get it hot and smoky.
Content and Features — 5/5
Ritual is oriented to mass food market rather than haute cuisine. The service covers places like coffee shops, burger restaurants, pizzerias, sushi bars and other mass food genres that have become international recently.
The app has its catalog of partner places where you can order a coffee or a meal through it.
There is one more attractive detail about it. Making orders brings you points that provide a significant discount when you collect a certain number. You receive points both for your own orders or those you bring to your colleagues or friends. This social feature is called
Piggyback and is meant to encourage you and your colleagues to join up at Ritual.co. Another feature for businesses is subsidizing coffees and lunches for the employees via the service.
There is also a gaming element, similar to what we see in Foursquare. You earn points by visiting a new spot, filling in your profile and so on.
Usability — 4/5
There’s nothing to complain about if you live where it works. All it needs is the Internet connection, and even 3G will do.
If you install it from your device via the app market, then don’t worry about it. If you live not in Canada or the USA, you won’t be able even to install it from Google Play or App Store. And even if you happen to live where it works, there’s almost no Ritual network abroad. But if it covers your neighborhood, it does its daily job perfectly.
Compatibility — 5/5
The app is available for Android and iOS. In the Apple ecosystem, the developers realized support for iMessage (that is, for most Apple devices) and for Apple watch. It will send you reminders to start off in order to get there in time.
It’s a great app, but its use is limited by locations where the service is implied. For Canada or some cities in the US, it works great. But it’s still a question, whether Ritual will expand further abroad, as an alternative to TheFork and other European and worldwide services.
There’s more to Ritual than simply an app with a backend network. The company even launches its own fests that promote it offline. For example, at Ritual Eats.
Week Chicago you could get your bill hailed off if you ordered it with Ritual and paid with Apple Pay.
