Citysearch today released a new and completely redesigned version of its free BlackBerry application. The mobile app allows you to find the hottest places to eat, drink, shop and relax where ever you are with access to local business listings, reviews and ratings, maps and more.
“We are committed to making our mobile app the best user experience across any device – be it BlackBerry, Android or iPhone – and, based on great feedback from our BlackBerry users, we overhauled the app to make it more robust,” said Bardia Dejban, Director of Mobile for Citysearch. “With this new release we have transformed a browser-like experience into a solid native app, keeping the user’s experience within a small number of screens to streamline the experience.”
New features include:
- Simplified browsing – Streamlined navigation makes it easier for users to explore their favorite restaurants, bars, shopping locations, spas, and other local services;
- One-touch capabilities – Editor’s Picks and Recent Reviews are only a click away, plus options like contacting a business, mapping an address, and saving a location to your contacts are now in a more simplified format;
- GPS enhancements – Users can use GPS to set their current location on GPS-enabled devices;
- Keyword filters –Narrow down services by keyword – need a fix for that late night pizza craving? Users can filter by “pizza” under the Restaurants tab.
The CitySearch BlackBerry app is available for all devices but limited to wireless networks in the United States. For more info or to download the app check it out in the BlackBerry App World.
