OpenTable Introduces Free Mobile Application for Android

OpenTable, Inc. (NASDAQ:OPEN), a leading provider of free online reservations for diners and guest management systems for restaurants, today announced the launch of its free reservations booking application for the Android platform. Diners using OpenTable for Android can check the real-time availability of multiple restaurants in the area, read restaurant reviews, invite friends to join them and then follow directions to the restaurant, all from their mobile device. OpenTable for Android is the latest addition to OpenTable’s smartphone application series which makes it easier than ever to book dining reservations on-the-go.

“OpenTable’s mobile applications take the ease and convenience of online reservations to a whole new level,” said Caroline Potter, chief dining officer at OpenTable. “The ability to instantly find and book reservations from anywhere —without having to research restaurants from a desktop computer or make multiple calls to find available tables – is a truly valuable service for business travelers and casual diners alike. Now, fans of the open source Android platform can experience that same advantage.”

With OpenTable for Android, diners can simply specify the desired date, time and party size for their meal to immediately be provided with a list of available tables at restaurants in the vicinity. From there, diners can refine results by price range or type of cuisine, view individual restaurants on a map, and send emails complete with reservation information to friends. Registered OpenTable members can view or modify their upcoming reservations, earn OpenTable Dining Points and see their current points balances from their smartphones. OpenTable for Android users can also book 1,000-point reservations, allowing them to earn free meals faster than ever before.

OpenTable for Android also leverages the Android platform’s unique integration capability between applications. Using this feature, WHERE® and GoodFood, two location-based applications in Android Market™, now enable their users to make restaurant reservations via OpenTable when they are on the go. WHERE® is a location-based application that connects people to the world around them, helping them save time and money. Now with the integration of OpenTable, WHERE users on Android powered-devices will not only be able to search for restaurants nearby and read reviews, but they will also be able to book reservations while on the go. The GoodFood application makes it easier and faster to find and share restaurant recommendations. With simple ‘Thumbs Up’ or ‘Thumbs Down’ recommendations, short quick tips and easy to use cuisine and price filters, GoodFood allows diners to make rapid, informed decisions about where to dine.

The application is available for download today from Android Market on Android-powered devices. For more information about OpenTable’s mobile applications for smartphones, please visit www.opentable.com/mobile.
