OpenTable's app allows diners to book from anywhere
OpenTable has launched an application for the iPhone in a bid to cater for the growing number of smartphone users and help restaurants reach more customers

The restaurant reservation system's new 'app' allows users to see detailed profiles of restaurants as well as search for and book restaurants while on the move. Users can also invite friends to join them and collect OpenTable points via the app.

OpenTable said the app could help drive business for partner restaurants because it allowed customers to book a table instantly from wherever they were.

"Mobile is an increasingly interesting area for OpenTable given both the growth of smartphones – and because their key competitor for reservations is, in fact, the phone," it said.

OpenTable provides guest management solutions to restaurants and free, real-time online restaurant reservations for diners at more than 11,000 restaurants worldwide.

Opentable's app has been around for a few weeks but really doesn't server the UK well yet unless you're in London. This isn't the app, which is very easy to use but restaurant coverage.
Toptable also have an iphone app which is just as simple to use but offers better restaurant coverage in the UK. Opentable couldn't verify my location, which didn't help either!
