A new iPhone application from an Austin developer – ATX Innovation, promises to take the wait and confusion out purchasing food and drinks at leading establishments.

TabbedOut [ iTunes, FREE ] enables users to pay restaurant and bar bills using mobile phones. The company is initially launching its smartphone application in Austin, Seattle and Dallas.

Although just formally launched this week – the number of participating restaurants is expanding rapidly. CEO Rick Orr expects 20 more locations by the end of the month.

Instead of surrendering your plastic credit and debit card to a server – software installed an the establishment’s point-of-sale terminal syncs with the customer’s smartphone and tracks what has been ordered. The customer can then add a tip before closing out the tab from card information stored on your phone.

There is no enrollment process, and patrons can use their existing debit or credit cards.
