DVD and games rental site Lovefilm has launched its first official iPhone app, as has the online dining community and restaurant reservation service, toptable.

Lovefilm’s app allows members to view and manage their rental list on the move; search and browse through 65,000 DVD, Blu-ray and games titles; view film synopses and cast lists; and look at over 80 million user-generated ratings. Non-members can also download the app to use as a film information source.

Meanwhile, the toptable app allows users to actually view nearby restaurants and book a meal there; includes a tip calculator to work out how much gratuity to leave; and even advises on the best wine to go with your food.

The Lovefilm app was developed for the company by Techlightenment and is available now as a free download. The toptable app was developed in conjunction with Mobile Commerce is available free from the iTunes App store.
