The way it works? Easy. All you need to do after downloading the app is register either via Facebook or manually, after which you can insert payment details. Would you like to use more than one card? Go ahead – Velocity even lets you divide between corporate and personal use. Then, check into a restaurant venue and tell your waiter that you are with Velocity. The best thing is, you can see your bill in real-time and even split the bill if you are looking to share the cost of a meal between friends.
Currently, Velocity has raised $12 million in series A funding. It has partnered with over 300 restaurants in London (a few of your favorites – Burger & Lobster, Sketch, including some Michelin starred restaurants too) with plans to launch in New York, major cities across the United States, Europe and Asia.
Not only is the app useful, it is also highly aesthetically appealing and easy to navigate. Furthermore you can unlock rewards and benefits by way of rating your experience after a meal. The app is definitely for the savvy restaurant-goer – we know, we are already using it.
