Moments ago, the official OpenTable blog heralded the release of OpenTable for iOS 7.

Amidst a flurry of app activity and announcements surrounding today's official iOS 7 launch, OpenTable is garnering its fair share of attention for creating an easier solution to find and book great places to eat on a mobile device.

The new iOS 7-friendly app design, OpenTable says, allows restaurants to truly shine. Among the freshly touted new features of the refreshed OpenTable app are:

  • Streamlined search: Change the date, time, or party size in line and see results immediately
  • Focus on location: Enter an address or city* to find restaurants nearby
  • New ways to explore: Browse restaurants by top-rated categories or cuisines
  • Easy access to more info: Swipe left and right to see all available times, and pull down on a restaurant page to see photos
  • Points tracking: See your progress toward earning your next Dining Cheque

OpenTable tells MMi that mobile bookings now account for over one-third of seated diners, and the company expects this number to continue to grow.
