Do you know your mom’s favorite brunch spot or restaurant? Have you heard her often say, “I’ve always wanted to try this place out, but no one wants to come with me!” Your mother has fed you well your whole life, it’s time to return the favor this Mother’s Day.

Once you narrow down your mom’s favorite restaurant, the next step is to make a reservation. Most of the restaurants are usually busy on Mother’s Day. If you make a reservation in advance, you won’t have to wait in line. If you don’t, you could risk your mom being “hangry,” as she waits hours for the next table to open up. So you go ahead and call the restaurant only to find out that your mom’s favorite restaurant takes no advance reservations. You get all stressed out, hoping that the restaurant is not over crowded. But no need to worry!

NextME, the simplest digital wait list app, allows you to hold your place in line with just your cellphone. The app sends you a text message confirming your placement on the list and provides a link to a countdown clock for you and your mom. The best part is you don’t have to download the app. You will just have to come to restaurant that’s using it. As you can imagine, having a countdown clock means that instead of waiting in line, you will be making the most of that extra time. Perhaps you and your mom can grab coffee at the nearest Starbucks. When the clock gets low, NextME will send out another text, which you will reply to keep or cancel your reservation. From there, you will be notified when the restaurant is ready to seat you.
