You know what really sucks? Queuing for food on your lunch hour. This is supposed to be a brief window in the middle of your work day where you can relax and eat at your own leisure, but there you are, impatiently waiting to be served as the clocks ticks down.

Luckily for you, there's an Irish app that wants to help you reclaim your lunchtime: Bamboo.

You may have already heard of this homegrown tool, thousands of Dubliners already use it every day, but you might not realise how much it can change your midday meal.

Simply put, the app lets you speed up the whole process of getting your lunch. Here's how it works: Bamboo shows you restaurants and cafés nearby that have subscribed to their service, allows you to place your order and pay for your meal in advance, it will then notify you when meal is being prepared and ready to collect, and finally it allows you to skip right to the head of the queue at the eatery! On average, the app has been shown to shave 15 minutes off your lunchtime waiting time.

The more you use the free app, the more loyalty points you build, which you can collect and redeem for discounted meals.

If you download it this week and use the promo code ' WOW20' you can a 20% discount on your next meal from Wowburger. Also, Bambo is running a competition right now to win a €100 voucher to blow in Wowburger, which you can enter over on their Facebook page.

More than a hundred restaurants and cafés have already signed up to Bamboo, boasting partners like...
