NoshList Launches Mobile Waitlist Apps

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Firespotter Labs has announced that its waitlist app for iPad, NoshList, has been successfully launched for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android. The NoshList app is free for download at, the App Store and on Google Play.

(Photo: The addition of this mobile functionality to the original iPad app gives restaurant operators the flexibility to use other iOS or Android when preparing to seat restaurant diners. The mobile app also removes the barrier of needing an iPad to use the solution by offering the NoshList platform on multiple devices.

"The release of the NoshList iPhone, iPod Touch and Android apps, in addition to our existing iPad app, makes it even easier for a restaurant to run an organized, efficient and measurable waitlist that also provides valuable guest and operational analytics," said Craig Walker, CEO and co-founder of Firespotter Labs.

A fully featured restaurant waitlist and guest-management solution, NoshList notifies diners via unlimited free text messaging and automated phone call alerts that their tables are ready, replacing paper lists, microphones and alert buzzers.

NoshList is in use in more than 2,250 restaurants nationwide. Clients include Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Buffalo Wild Wings, Miller's Ale House and many other national and regional brands. To date, more than 8 million diners have been seated with NoshList since the company's launch in February 2012, making it the fastest growing restaurant waitlist platform in history.

"Our goal is to make NoshList a simple and clean experience for the restaurant operator, while improving the waiting experience for restaurant patrons. Judging by our numbers, we're exceeding these goals," Walker said.

In addition to NoshList, Firespotter Labs offers NoshList Premium for $49 per month, per restaurant. Premium features include two-way text messaging, table number assignments, in-app statistics, designated local phone numbers, and 30-day analytics. The Premium features are only currently available for the iPad app and on the website, and will soon be added to the new mobile version.

About Firespotter Labs Launched in 2011, Firespotter Labs is a start-up founded by serial entrepreneur Craig Walker. Products in the Firespotter family include Nosh, NoshList, UberConference, and Jotly. Firespotter Labs is funded by Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures. To learn more about NoshList go to
