A new Qype BlackBerry application has been launched to bring a more personal experience to business travellers. The app recommends places to visit based on personal or business needs. Qype, Europe’s largest site for user-generated reviews and recommendations, informs users of the best places to visit based on the views of other like-minded individuals.
It is hoped that the latest BlackBerry app will encourage those on business trips to explore the town or city they’re staying in, rather than remaining in the confines of their hotel.
By using the preferences for places other business travellers have already visited, the app can suggest similar venues, allowing users to find bars, restaurants and other points of interest that suit their taste.
Qype has also introduced the ‘check-in’ functionality to BlackBerry, enabling users to share their whereabouts with friends, stay up-to-date with what they are doing and discover new places to visit. Users can also benefit from Facebook check-in integration for the first time.
The new app is available to download or update through BlackBerry APP World and Qype site: http://www.qype.co.uk/go-mobile.
