Wolfgang Puck Launches New iPhone Application

LOS ANGELES, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pioneering chef Wolfgang Puck announces the debut of his first app for iPhone and iPod touch, created by Gourmet Pixel. The app, now available for free from the App Store, features never-before-published recipes, cooking and technique videos, one-touch calling for reservations, event planning tools and social media integration. Fans of Wolfgang can tune in to a live video chat with the master chef on Tuesday, April 17 at 12pm PT/3pm ET via www.livestream.com/wolfgangpuck.

"I'm excited to bring my favorite recipes, cooking tips and tricks to our fans who share my passion for food and entertaining," said Wolfgang Puck. "For those who like to cook, dine out or host events, my app offers great features to make life easier at home or while traveling. It's VIP access to the best of what we have to offer!"

The chef, restaurateur, and visionary behind an empire of restaurants, products, cookbooks, and catering operations brings new innovation to the world of hospitality with his unique app. Pulling from Wolfgang's best dishes, including exclusive new recipes, the app offers personalized recommendations based upon the season, time and user's location. Home cooks can add ingredients to a "Shopping List" of items needed at the store or market. Video demonstrations sit side-by-side with "Tips and Tricks," teaching skills like the proper way to dice an onion.

Those looking to take a night off from the kitchen can access OpenTable restaurant reservations, a first in the world of chef mobile apps. A built-in GPS locator helps fans locate restaurants in airports, hotels and cities around the world. Event planning capabilities allow users to organize functions, from weddings to dinner parties. iPhone-integrated functions make for easy entertaining with an event countdown, guest list tracking and recipe and menu sharing. The shopping section provides access to a digital store of products, from cookware to kitchen appliances.

With social media and the app, Wolfgang is utilizing technology to connect with guests unlike any other celebrity chef. Along with a strong social media presence on YouTube, Facebook, Foursquare, Foodspotting and Twitter, the app is another way for fans to access Wolfgang's world.

The Wolfgang Puck app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
