The app that waits in line for you at the bar

This article is more than 12 months old

An app is trying to take the pain out of trying to order your drinks at a busy bar.

Orderella promises that you don't have to compete for the bartender's or waiter's attention by allowing to place your order on your phone.

Once the order is placed, you can pay for it using your credit card, debit card, Paypal or Apple Pay.

So all you have to do is to pick up your order at the bar or have it delivered to you.

It is, available on Apple's iOS and Google's Android,

Orderella's CEO Dennis Collett said in an interview with CNN that they are planning to launch the app in Singapore this month.

However, they did not specify an exact launch date.

Although you can download the app now, there are currently are no bars in Singapore that are signed up with it.

So until they launch, we will have to jostle with the rest of the crowd at the bar.

Meanwhile, here are other apps that you can use now to make your life that much easier.

This app gets a mention because it promises to deliver hawker food to your doorstep.

According to The Straits Times, the app launched in October.

However, a test of the app showed that they had a rather limited number of hawker partners so far and also limited number or areas in Singapore that they deliver to.

For example, they do not deliver to our office in Braddell.

The makers of the app said they have plans to find partners from at least half the hawker centres in Singapore by the end of next year.

Hopefully, in the near future, we would be able to munch on heavenly ohr luak  from Fengshan Market and Food centre without having to step out of the house.
