"Honey, Let's Have a Dinner Somewhere Today?"
The Reserve It Kickstarter project promotes a refreshing idea of being able to reserve an open table or schedule an appointment in restaurants, barbers, beauty salons, and other public places nearby from their phone at any time without having to make a call there, saving your time and money. The app also features an option to turn on the notifications to remind you about your reservations.
Among the variety of similar apps, the Reserve It outstands many of them by the option to turn on the GPS navigation to quickly sort by category, find and book the place nearby.
From user’s perspective, the Reserve It is designed so that even a 13-year old could use it without requiring additional help. The app will also ask you to create an account or link it to the existing one from Facebook, Google+ or Twitter to share your reservations or place’s review.
The booking process is quite straightforward. You choose the topic where you want to go or what you need to do. Then, choose the company and the reservation time. Finally, you’ll have an option to add a note. For example, asking to put some flowers on table or notify your friend that you may be a few minutes late.
If you reconsider your plans, you’ll have an option to cancel your booking within the first 24 hours after the reservation. If you are making a day-to-day reservation, then you will also have an option to cancel it within the 30-minute period after it. All this makes the Reverse It a pretty great reservation and booking app for both planning your week and finding the last-minute deals as well.
The other side of the coin is that the app will help the local business to thrive as well. Considering that the app’s author is located in the UK, the starting ground will most probably be Great Britain and maybe nearby countries. Furthermore, to protect the companies against the unfair use or unreliable customers, who don’t turn up on time, the app will allow the owners to leave a negative feedback in customers' profiles, which may lead to showing them less popular places for some period of time.
