Waiting in long lines is an essential aspect of city living, a typically unavoidable and uncomfortable experience that can leave you feeling tired by the time the wait is over -- placer is a line waiting service that's attempting to eliminate that annoyance by connecting you to 'professional place holders,' people you can pay to wait in line for you.

The recently launched app connects users to popular places: restaurants, concert halls, and pop-up shops, and lists the average wait time. If that time exceeds the amount you're willing to spend in line, you can hire someone through the app to do it for you. The app notifies the user when the 'place holder' is nearing the front of the cue, to eliminate any guesswork from the process.
