A new iPhone app being tested in South Australia could make paying your bar tab a smoother and more pain-free experience. Ten watering holes in Adelaide and its surrounding area are taking part in the maiden voyage of OneTab, designed to be an electronic link between your bank account and your bartender. Simply relay the code on the screen and venue will be sure that you have the required funds to cover your food and/or drinks.
OneTab serves a number of functions for travelers and locals alike. Not only does it smooth out the transaction process in a crowded environment, but it also allows people to leave their credit card at home – no more worries about leaving it behind.
The app can find the nearest participating watering holes based on your location and provide directions to reach them.
Additional features include the ability to set a credit limit, as well as the ability to post to Twitter and Facebook directly from the app.
So you leave your wallet at home, enjoy your night out and only spend as much as you planned, with only a few clicks. Next they’ll be telling us it cures hangovers!
