OpenTable for iPad Is Here: Satisfy Your iPad App-etite Today!

OpenTable for iPad2 OpenTable for iPad Is Here:  Satisfy Your iPad App etite Today!Many people have been asking when OpenTable will bring its mobile app to Apple’s iPad.  We are excited to tell you that the answer is — today!  You can now download the latest OpenTable app here.
As a mobile product manager, I wanted to share our view of this exciting platform. While it’s not yet entirely clear, we believe people will use the iPad in different ways than they do the iPhone. Until there are a greater number of 3G-capable devices in diners’ hands, we won’t know whether the primary use will be at home, at work, or on-the-go, but when the iPad is used in the home, it tends to be a communal device. Like the TV remote, it’s something that is likely shared among friends and family while sitting on the couch.  Because most dining decisions are communal, the iPad, then, is a terrific platform for planning where to eat tonight (and every night). The iPad’s generous screen means that you can browse more information at once, making it easier and faster than ever to find the perfect open table any time.
Developed in close collaboration with Sequence, the OpenTable iPad app incorporates all the unique features iPhone users have come to know and love while putting even more information at diners’ fingertips. Where we go from here – and where you dine — is up to you, dear iPad user.

    Hi,

    Why is it that I cannot download the iPad app for Opentable from the Netherlands?

    Hi Glenn!

    We don’t make the app available in countries where we don’t have a critical mass of restaurants or the ability to display in the local language (in this case, Dutch). This is done in order to prevent confusion/frustration of users in these countries.

    Apologies for any inconvenience,

    Caroline Potter

    When I go to my current open table iPhone app on my iPad, I get a box telling me i can download the free iPad app. I can’t do it, though…the installed button is greyed out.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Leslie,
    I just emailed your mobile feedback address regarding a question about the app. I’d like to set our concierge staff up at my hotel with iPads so they are more mobile, with the expecation that they would use your app to book reservations for our guests. However, from what one of them told me the app does not allow for that; they would be making a reservation from a consumer account instead. Any thoughts?
