New App Lets You Pay For Dinner Without Waiting For the Check
A new app that allows you to pay for your bill—plus the tip—at local restaurants launched in Los Angeles today.
Cover has already been active in NYC and San Francisco, but made its debut in Los Angeles today, according to Eater LA. The app allows you to pay for your meal, plus tip, using only your mobile phone. You can either create or join a table when you arrive, tell your server you're paying using Cover, and you'll get the receipt emailed to you. Essentially, this would avoid the part where you have to wait for the check when you're ready to go. The app also allows your split the bill between you and other members of your party.
There isn't a huge list of participating L.A. restaurants yet, but there are a few great options: Republique, Ray & Stark's, Cliff's Edge and Eagle Rock Brewery, to name a few. See a full list here.
