Arriving on the App Store today is a clever combination of trusty local business search engine Yelp and people’s experiences of such businesses.
Jollyspot promises to make it easy to remember and share favourite places. Users can find the best hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, spas and more anywhere in the world all through trusted recommendations from friends who have already used such services. Further advice can then be offered via a notes system that allows users to add information such as the best meal, best time to visit a bar or other useful insider knowledge.
It’s a simple concept but potentially highly effective. There’s no gamification of social features like with Foursquare and other social apps, it’s all about the best places as chosen by regular people/friends. The friends element means the information is guaranteed to be pretty reliable making Jollyspot surely the first port of call for the scoop on the best places to visit.
Jollyspot is available now as a free app.
