COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - McDonald’s is trying out the possibility of allowing people to use their smartphones to order food.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (https://bit.ly/VNzwEt ) reports that the fast-food chain is testing the system in the Columbus area before a possible national rollout.

Customers can download the McDonald’s ordering app for an iPhone or Android device and connect it to a credit card for payment. Mobile ordering stations have been installed at Columbus-area restaurants.

Directions tell customers to create their order in the app, scan a code at the ordering station and then submit the order and pay. Customers can pick up the food inside the restaurant or have it delivered to their cars.

A McDonald’s spokeswoman told the newspaper that the technology is being tested in a few markets.
