iOS Groupon App Update Adds Mobile Reservations

Groupon looking to raise $750 million in its IPO

Discount service, Groupon, launched an update to its iOS app today. Among some other minor improvements, the major addition to the app is the ability to make in-app reservations at a discount of up to 40%. Apple users can grab the updated app in the iTunes store today, and the new features should be coming to Android soon.

Just remember, always tip based on the actual price of the meal, not the discounted one.
