Foursquare and Open TableLeading location based service provider Foursquare has partnered with dinner reservation provider Open Tablet to bring restaurant table booking directly to the Foursquare platform for mobile devices.

The new feature is available for iPhone and Android users.

While Foursquare started as a simple “check-in” program it quickly began to amass business appeal and eventually partnered with American Express.

Since launching the programs “explore” tab the company has been looking for new ways to add value to the platform.

Using the new system Foursquare users can find restaurants near their location as they always could and now they can check-in to those locations after reading reviews, all without leaving the Foursquare mobile app.

 

The reservations section shouldn’t come as a surprise as the company rolled out the feature for testing in May. The original launch however was only available to desktop application users which severely limited its capabilities.The program is now available for iPhone and Android and can be accessed by simply pressing the big reservation button inside the restaurants Foursquare page.

If last minute reservations or other booking rules must be observed the app will even tell Foursquare users what they need to do or if reservations can be made at the time of their request.
