Mind The Queue Mind The Queue Mind The Queue

Here’s to the impatients. The hurrieds, the stressed, the do-everythings. The don’t have time for this now.

Mind The Queue is made for impatient souls such as myself who hate to wait for a service, whether it’s a bank, an amusement park, a grocery store, a restaurant or anywhere else you can think of.  This app has you well covered. Time is money, time is happiness and even if queues allow you to play quick Candy Crush matches, it’s better to do it on the sofa.

This app allows real time input for wait times at a particular institution. Upon registration (and it’s possible to register with your Facebook account, to make it fast and easy), you can select the place in question using a master list from Yelp and add the current wait time at the tap of a button.  You can also search for wait times either by distance from your current location or by name.  The app also lets you know where the business is relative to your current location via a map. Don’t get lost (and no need to wait on arrival.)

Another nice feature of Mind The Queue is direct access to the Yelp directory, including reviews, for the businesses you might be searching for.  Not only do you know the wait times, you know their Yelp ratings so you can determine for yourself if the wait is worth it and what may await you once there.

Obviously, not everyone reports on the wait time at a business at all times so the app also gives you an average wait time per report so you can at least get a sense of what you’re in for if you decide to go there.  You can also favorite a business or location for quick access to know the required investment of your time.

Mind The Queue is a good, original idea and I look forward to more people using it so we can also use our time more efficiently. What are you waiting for? It’s a free app!
