More than two months after OpenTable acquired restaurant discovery app Foodspotting for $10m, the online table-reservation service has finally integrated Foodspotting’s restaurant-finding and dish-sharing features into the iOS incarnation of its app.
Now, you’ll be able to view the most popular dishes from Foodspotting on OpenTable’s restaurant pages, simply by swiping the gallery to browse the snaps, while you can tap them to see more information about each dish.
Just to recap, OpenTable acquired Foodspotting to “deliver a richer visual and social experience for diners and provide its restaurant customers with new opportunities to showcase their offerings,” it said in its announcement back in January.
The acquisition actually followed a deal between the two companies that saw Foodspotting provide dish photos on its service, and despite OpenTable swallowing its team (pun intended), it promised that Foodspotting would be kept as a standalone app, which it still is.
