LoSo, a location-based restaurant and bars app which bills itself as a combination of FourSquare and Yelp, has announced a complete redesign as part of the version 2.0 update. New features include user profiles, as well as a real-time news feed linked to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The most significant new addition is the What's Up! feature, which allows users to take photos or videos of local bars and restaurants and instantly upload them to your Facebook page, the restaurant's Facebook page, and LoSo's listings. The app also allows users to check out menus, drink specials and happy hour deals of all participating businesses within 10 miles of their current location. Checking in at participating businesses grants QRewards Points, which can be redeemed for free food and drinks, as well as other prizes.
LoSo is currently testing in the Philadelphia and Boston markets, and will be expanding to Washington D.C, Chicago and Dallas soon.
Fan of frequenting bars? Single? Live in the US? Then Liquid Fare might just be the ideal socializing app.
Liquid Fare's developers promise that this app is designed to act as a smartphone wingman enabling its users to find a local bar with just the type of people they desire. It relies on local bar data and information submitted by other Liquid Fare users. Users can submit reviews and other details such as the average age group, style and even attractiveness within the bar.
Search results according to these ratings can then pop up using the iPhone's GPS facility and users can see how a bar ranks amongst its local competition.
Liquid Fare could really take out the effort in finding the ideal bar for any individual. It'll certainly be great for those who have just moved to a new area and are trying to figure out where's right for them.
The app is out now and it's a free for all.
