Citysearch Updates Apps

David Murphy

Citysearch has upgraded its free Android and iPhone apps, and released a version for BlackBerry. The new version of the Android App offers faster access to local information, with built-in GPS pinpoints for local businesses. Users can search across categories ranging from sushi to bars to spas and review Citysearch content to help them make an informed decision about where to go. The Mobile by Citysearch Android app also enables users to upload photos from their favourite local businesses, and to tweet about places they like.

The updated iPhone app features a ‘find my location’ feature that enables users to scroll in a map view and snap back to their current location. Similar to the new Android functionality, iPhone users can also upload a photo for a business listing using their Citysearch profile.

The BlackBerry version offers users access to all Citysearch business listings and content, as well as Outlook and calendar integration, enabling users to send invites without leaving the app. They can also tweet, review and search for restaurants, bars and other businesses.
