  • This idea seems to be very good. I think it can very well work on salons, spa, restaurants for reservation however if we think of its usage in grocery order, there could be some challenges. Most of the kirana stores are busy during the day. I don’t think they would have enough time to respond to customer’s messages. Since this is a chat app, people would expect replies in real time.
    Anyways I believe this app has a potential. Good luck LookUp team !!!
