David Murphy

Citysearch has launched its Mobile by Citysearch application for the Google Android platform. Android device users can browse, search and share local information for over 15 million local business listings, and post reviews to Citysearch directly from their handset. Mobile by Citysearch for Android joins the family of Citysearch applications for multiple mobile platforms, including iPhone, Palm WebOS, Blackberry devices and all mobile web browsers.  
Our mobile applications enable users to experience their city, their way, offering the best local content and features available, no matter where they are, or which mobile phone they use, says Kara Nortman, Senior Vice President, Publishing at Citysearch. As one of this years hottest holiday gifts, Android phones will now deliver an even better local experience to users, who can search, find and share local user reviews and editorial content in real-time. 
Mobile by Citysearch for Android uses GPS to search the nearest restaurants, cafes, banks, movie theaters and other listings closest to a user's location, and provides directions via Google Maps. Mobile users can instantly connect and share a new listing with friends within the Citysearch App using email, SMS or Twitter.
