NEW YORK — has released a new iOS app that gives users a simpler, easier way to order from their favorite restaurants and stores. The new app features an optimized user experience within each of’s core categories — food, alcohol, groceries and laundry — which together comprise a convenient one-stop shop for local ordering. Leveraging the full capabilities of iOS, enhancements in the new app include a striking visual design, customized recommendations for users, and a complementary app for Apple Watch®.

“We’ve established such an extensive marketplace of local merchants that we had to look beyond a one-size-fits-all approach to ordering,” said Jed Kleckner, CEO of “Whether you’re searching for the best local burger or getting your favorite six-pack delivered, we’re catering to the specific needs inherent to each category, and we’re doing it all in a single, streamlined app.”

  • Across’s category offering, the new iOS app offers significant ordering enhancements:
  • An intelligent recommendation engine utilizes machine learning to provide personalized suggestions based on a user’s order history.
  • When ordering alcohol, users select from a visually rich, product-first view of inventory that mirrors the experience of shopping at a liquor store.
  • The Price Compare feature in the laundry category prompts the user to build a “bag” of items for wash-and-fold, dry cleaning, and/or tailoring, and the app instantly generates estimated pricing from all available cleaners. This gives the consumer unprecedented information and control to decide what factors they value most, without settling for the nearest cleaner to their daily commute.

Users of the new iOS app continue to earn Delivery Points for every purchase — redeemable for credit, charitable donations, and other rotating rewards.
