Paying restaurant bill with your phone

A new app called COVER has been created to help with paying the bill at restaurants. The app has been in Beta in New York for 10 months with local restaurants who are partners with the company. Cover helps to split the bill of large groups of people eating together. The person tells the restaurant that they are paying with cover. From there whatever is put on the bill is split evenly amongst those who ordered. The app is created to cater to customers, however, it has some problems. The app splits the bill evenly based on how many people are in the group. This means that if someone ordered an appetizer or an expensive drink then everyone pays helps pay for it. The app also helps with the accounting situation restaurants must go through making in more simple for them. Cover is still in testing and still has different features that need to be added. But this can be the future of paying for dinner.
