OpenTable For iPad Gets A Makeover To Make Reservation Easier
OpenTable for iPad, the official iPad app of the eponymous online restaurant reservation service, has recently booked a new major update. The latest update to OpenTable for iPad seeks to make restaurant reservation much easier than before with its fresher and cleaner interface. First and foremost, you can now search for restaurants that match your requirements without having to leave the map view. That's because the map view is now accompanied by in-line fields for changing the date, time, and party size. What's more, in-line search for a specific restaurant is included in the new version of OpenTable for iPad. It's completely optional, of course, but if you have a particular restaurant in mind you want to reserve, then this new search field is for you.

In accordance with this, you can now use the app freely even when it's still loading stuff as the spinner no longer locks you out of it. Compatible with iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of OpenTable for iPad is available now in the App Store for free. OpenTable for iPhone and iPod touch is also available in the App Store for free. So is OpenTable Manager for iPad, a table management app for restaurant managers. Late last January, another iOS app was added to the OpenTable app family in the form of the popular and free food-sharing photo app Foodspotting. The app was acquired by OpenTable for approximately $10 million in cash. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
