CoverCover is a brilliant app designed to make it ultra-easy to pay for your meal at a restaurant, and the New York-based startup behind it hopes it will soon take off. Instead of waiting forever for a check, with the Cover system users simply check-in to a restaurant at the start of their meal and when it’s time for them to pay the bill, the money owed is immediately charged to their credit card. It’s based on the same model as Uber.

The app is still in private beta (iPhone and soon Android) but the startup just raised $1.5 million.

    This is done in Europe and quite effective.

      In a perfect world, the check would be correct all the time …. but, how many times have you disputed an extra entree? glass of wine? returned item? Is there accommodation for those adjustments?

    I love technology. Soon, we will have no need to carry anything around except our phones as everything will be automated, which is actually a little scary (because we will have to rely so heavily on our technology) and convenient (because we have less to worry about losing).
