A brand new version of the popular, free Qype iPhone application is now available on the App Store, offering users on the move recommendations for restaurants, bars, hotels and many more types of businesses based on their likes and dislikes.
“This is an exciting development for iPhone users, combining the power of Qype’s recommendations with the convenience of mobility,” said Stephan Uhrenbacher, founder and chairman of Qype. “By using your preferences for places you’ve already been, the app can suggest similar places near you right away, so you’ll easily find bars, restaurants and other businesses you’re sure to love, while you’re close to home, elsewhere in the UK or even travelling abroad.”
For the first time, social network enthusiasts will also be able to check in to places using Qype and publish their whereabouts to their Facebook and Twitter pages, making it easy to share recommendations with friends. The app includes new social features like an activity feed that displays contacts’ reviews, check ins and photo uploads as they are posted so users can stay up to date with what their friends are doing and discover new places to visit.
The new, free Qype application is available from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.
