Clever concept, giving people free Uber rides to fill brick-and-mortar demand (in this case, restaurants). This has some overlap with Teleport Dashboard, a tool for businesses to send and Uber to a large number of people. Added to my Invisible Apps collection.

@rrhoover is there a list of bots that respond to emojis as intent? Super nifty idea!

NOTICE: Until further updates we will be operating under 574-742-4191. Our old number will be back soon. Thank you for hunting cake, Ryan! We're super excited to share cake with Product Hunt and bring great dining experiences to everyone. We're currently starting in LA & SF and will be growing to new markets where we see significant interest but where we can also ensure you eat at only the best restaurants. I look forward to hearing everyone's feedback and answering your questions. And this time, the cake is not a lie. Learn more about how we built cake.af on medium. https://a-musing.co/why-i-bought...

@danielsing3r Very cool. But does Cake.AF also take me home when I'm done eating?

@benburns Thank you! Currently not, but its something we're looking into. We haven't been able nail down the UX of getting the uber at the right time when you leave the restaurant and other issues we're working on.

Update! We just hit the limit for sms on Google Voice. Transferring over to Twilio as we speak. 413-GET-CAKE will be back soon. Use 5747424191 as a backup meanwhile

The simplicity of this product is what I love most. What kind of cake do I get though ;-)

Love the story of why you picked the name cake.af, @danielsing3r (hint: ๐Ÿฐ). You can't launch a product today without claiming your own emoji!

Thanks! @jackdweck I've always been stumped when it comes to coming up with names for new projects. I figured if I'm going to go bold I might as well just think of something rash and go with it. I couldn't quite think of anything rash except so I just looked at my keyboard and I guess it became clear to me. We need an emoji.

@arieljalali We're going to do snapchat takeovers for our diners. Should be a fun way to experience other people's lives similar to persicope but with the structure of a snapstory and dinner.
