Live Lineups - a web app providing waiting times & availability of essential items from crowdsourced data

App link: https://livelineups.com/

from https://www.blogto.com/eat_drink/2020/0 ... s-toronto/
The app uses your location and crowdsourced information to provide wait times of stores near you, colour coding them in green (zero minute wait), yellow (15 minutes) and red (45 minutes). That way, you can tell you're better off heading to No Frills as opposed to Costco at a certain time

Live Lineups also uses crowdsourcing to estimate the availability of essential items at stores like baby products, bath products, household items, fresh food and dried goods. You can view stores in list form or on a map.

Anyone using this app already?

Too many of these apps out now, frankly, I'd have expected Google to have taken a lead on this.

Without adoption, most of these are useless

On google maps there's a red bar that claims to be "live".

Yup, exactly.
