Optus Go Places
Cost: Free | Developer:Optus Mobile | Platform: Android | Version 5.41.44 | 11MB | 1.5+
Optus has launched Go Places, a new app that incorporates dining with travel. It provides Australia-wide dining deals, restaurant listings, reviews and ratings, bookings and detailed travel directions all within the single application.
The app not only provides services to make dining out more convenient, but also introduces electronic vouchers valid for 20 per cent off to many Australian restaurants. All you have to do to redeem these vouchers is flash the voucher displayed on a mobile device via the Go Places app before requesting the bill.
The app has reviews to more than 25,000 restaurants from an Australian dining guide, Eatability. Once you have picked out a favoured restaurant, you can either book it instantly through the app or calling the venue directly.
You can also launch the voice-guided GPS navigation from your location to the restaurant straight from Go Places.
Other paid features available with the app include: access to Premium Traffic and 124 yes directory assistance.
Pros: Optus customers will not be charged for data usage when using the app.
Cons: Access to the electronic vouchers service will be available for a one-off fee of $39.99 for one year’s access or you can purchase casual-use vouchers for $2.99 each (to be used within 24 hours of purchase). But, you will be able to use the vouchers as many times as you like.
Verdict: Great tool that gives you money off vouchers and free navigation.
