OpenTable Update Brings Waitlist Feature at Supporting Restaurants

OpenTable for Android

OpenTable, the restaurant reservation and payment app, has a new update rolling out that brings a long awaited feature:  Waitlists.  The update is version 8.0 and for those who already have the app installed, you can expect the OTA update to come to you over the course of the next few days.  Once you have it, at a select number of restaurants, you will be able to apply to be put on the waitlist if there are no reservations available.  Then, if an opening happens, you will be notified of availability.

The new feature is not supported by all restaurants on OpenTable and right now it is pretty limited in scope.  That will change to more cities and restaurants as they add the waitlist feature to their options.

OpenTable Update Brings In-App Profile Management

OpenTable for Android

I am a big user of OpenTable and have been for a long time.  It’s a great way to make a restaurant reservation whether you are at home or on the road.  One of my biggest complaints however is the lack of profile management in the app for Android (or iOS for that matter).  Anytime I want to change my email address or password I would have to log into the OpenTable website to change them.  Thankfully that is no longer the case.

OpenTable for Android was updated today to version 5.0.0.1398 for those keeping score at home and the big news with this update is the ability to update your profile from within the app.  No longer do you have to go to the site to make these changes and the update is available for both Android phones and tablets.
