What is the Zestyer Chef app?

The official Zestyer Chef app is available on both Android's Play Store and Apple's App Store as of August 1, 2018!

These apps are for chefs. They enable chefs to do most of the things they can do on Zestyer.com, through their mobile device with a native, cleanly designed app.

You can now sell food and earn money from home with an app on your phone. Below you will find download links as well as a description and screenshots of the app.

How Does it Look?

The app is built with the same theme and feel as the diner app, available on Android and iOS, but only features functionality for chefs. Here are some screenshots:

What Can I Do?

Like the Zestyer app, the Zestyer Chef app includes most of the functionality of the site. The main advantage of the Zestyer Chef app is that you receive push notifications to your phone every time an order comes in or is updated. It's much like phone-text confirmation, which will not be removed from the feature set in the near future.

Orders: You get your orders on the home screen of the app, and there's a link to the receipt right there. You can perform every action in the app receipt as you would on the site. Again, for design purposes, we do not show old, closed orders. They are available on Zestyer.com in the closed order tab, as always.

Menu: The menu in app is exactly as on the website. You can perform bulk actions by selecting active menu items. You get availability estimates. You can tap to view an item, and you get your action menu. In app, you can do all the same operations as on the website: edit the availability time range, set calendar limits, set servings limits, deactivate, activate, delete, etc. Here is a screenshot:

Creating Foods/Deals: The Zestyer Chef app lets you create foods or deals (post food items to sell on Zestyer). Every option available on the site is available in the Zestyer Chef app plus you get to edit your food photos with the Zestyer Image Editor, shown below.

Settings: The settings tab is just like the settings tab in the Zestyer app. The Zestyer Chef app lets you edit every single aspect of your chef profile as well as view the same public chef page available to users of the Zestyer app. You can upload banners, kitchen pictures, and a profile picture right from the app.

Onboarding Directly In App: Every user can sign up and apply to be a chef, so they can start earning money by selling food, with just the app. The app collects all the necessary information needed for chef onboarding and sends it securely to Zestyer. We look over the information and verify you. Here it is:

Limitations?

The Zestyer Chef app omits a step in the food/deal creation process. When you create a food/deal on the website, you are brought to an intermediary stage where you can look over the food/deal and see if it's what you want before verifying it and having it indexed in search. With the Zestyer Chef app, once you click the create button, the food/deal is immediately created and indexed in search. Errors in food/deal creation occur far less frequently with the app, as checks are in place verifying inputed information, than with the website, however we still recommend looking over the new food. If there is an error, feel free to tap the "Create From Item" button in the action menu of that food and change the property of the food that is incorrect. This is very easy as the information is preloaded.

Another limitation is that the app is very segmented from the Zestyer environment: you can only see your foods and your own profile. The Zestyer Chef app is designed to be more utilitarian rather than social. View your foods/deals and other chefs through the Zestyer app.

Anything Else?

The diner app, Zestyer, available on both the Play Store and App Store since the beginning of the year, has been updated to include the Zestyer Image Editor. This way, when you upload a profile picture from the Zestyer app, you can edit it the same way a chef could edit their own pictures. The Zestyer app also received a bunch of optimizations. It should run faster and more reliably.
