New takeout app lets you skip lines when ordering food

Takeout is like the "break glass in case of emergency" of ordering food -- you're too crunched for time to sit in a restaurant, too hangry to wait too long for your food, and too broke to get someone to deliver it to you. Why add more stress on top of that -- say, phoning in an order, or waiting in line behind 10 other people to pay? (Man, other people are just the worst.)

Well, fear not, hungry misanthrope: There's a new Toronto-based app called Grabb that lets you order online and prepay for meals, letting you skip the queue at the cash (and the time it takes to pay). Though Toronto's already awash in online delivery and takeout options, Grabb offers some nifty features, displaying your spot in the order queue, the estimated prep time for your order, and a map to your destination (with walking time).

The restaurant roster currently includes Fresh Off The Boat, Market St. Catch and Bacon Nation alongside chains like Hero and Aroma.
