Another reservation app, known as Reserve has launched in Boston. Even though, the app market is crowded with restaurant reservation apps, such as OpenTable and Yelp's Seat Me– one has yet to emerge as the "Uber of restaurant apps." 

So what does this app offer that the others don't? The user enters the number in their party and the time and Reserve will give them a list available restaurant reservations in their city. Users can also create a profile with a photo within the app- so the restaurants recognize the diner when they arrive. As for payment- the app stores the user's credit card info and tipping preferences and it will automatically pay the check at the end of the meal.

So how much does it cost? The dinner pays $5 at the end of reservation and it is free for restaurant business. Unlike, OpenTable which charges nothing for the diner, but a hefty $199 a month for the restaurant. Would you prefer to use this service as a consumer? What about as a restaurant operator? Read More
