Epicue for BlackBerry 10 to help users figure out restaurant wait times

Epicue is an interesting check-in app that aims to make sure the restaurants you go to don't have a massive wait time, and we got a sneak peak at BlackBerry Jam Asia 2013. Users check in to establishments with the app and give the place a red, yellow, or green wait time rating. They can also check into Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter, and BBM at the same time, as well as upload a picture. Similarly, you can take a look at the wait ratings for restaurants in your neighborhoods.

The major caveat here is that the data is only as good as the userbase; having one dude submit last week that there was a long wait time doesn't necessarily help you today. Over time, these places could gather decent average wait time scores, and if partnerships are struck up with chains, maybe real-time data could be farmed up based on how many orders they're processing.

wow, you are cool bro.... Posting first on this, and 3rd and 4th in other posts!! Way to be cool.... I hate you n00bs that have been here under a year, you guys all think its cool to post first.... well it's not cool. This site was so much better before BB10 launched and everyone now thinks you have to post first!! You don't need to!

Quick sucker give it a rest will ya, how can you try to chase away new members and think you're doing cb10 any good? People are free to post what they want it's a blog page not a job application

As much as I agree with you about the foolishness about posting first, in all fairness, this first post thing is far older than BB10.

Frank, I know it is, but the wave of new users under 1yr here posting the stupid first is asinine. It's them trying to fit in but really it makes them look worse. Oh well

I dunno - I discovered CrackBerry once I got my Z10 in February and have been with a BlackBerry since 2001. I think I've been the first to comment on a post at least three times and have never put in a "first". Whether you're on CB or anywhere in the world there will always be deadwood, and I don't think there's anything to be done about it. On the one hand good for the people who post that word "first" for finding something fulfilling in their day, and on the other hand, it's kinda (maybe) a shame that something like that is what gives them their jollies?

You are worse than the "n00bs" posting first. Give it a rest. The first posts don't ruin CB, where your posts actually make CrackBerry a worse place. Congrats on single handily making CrackBerry a worse place than it used to be.

Seems like something Foursquare would do well to implement into their app.

Stop making apps! Then we won't be able to b.tch and complain that we have no apps!

I don't see it in BBWorld? Is it coming? Maybe I missed that in a quick read of the article.

There is already a cross-platform app for this, it's called knowline

I am using this app, and it has a neat and smooth UI. I've the beta and I think I got this because this is only available in the Philippines for now? The developer is Filipino, I guess.

McDonald's isn't a restaurant, remember that. It's a junk food place and that's it, nothing more, bottom level in the chain.

Awesome idea looks like an excellent app!

We are actually working on how to push more restaurants to our server. And also planning on when we are going cross platform and supporting other countries. So stay tuned to our twitter @epicueapp and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/epicue
