Loogares, find recommendations for places on your iPhone and iPad
With geolocation applications increasingly in vogue, we wondered when we would run into an app designed especially for Latin America. Foursquare is great, is in Spanish, and the number of users is this area there are plenty of venues already loaded in order to discover new places. But in addition to Foursquare, wanted to see their own. Today we will talk Loogares precisely, an iPhone app that acts as guide to online entertainment recommendations and services to Latin America.
Loogares is available to users of Chile and Argentina, with a sizable community in Santiago, Valparaiso and Buenos Aires. Given its recent launch in Argentina, I did not find too many recommendations. However, the test found many places near me-places which, incidentally, never knew existed and I had the opportunity to visit later.
Loogares is that already has a number of 150 000 organic visits per month, 15 000 places of commerce and more than 13 thousand written recommendations by users. And, undoubtedly, continue to grow.
As you can imagine, Loogares geolocation is an application you can use from your iPhone or iPad, and through our GPS location coordinates and detect our give us a list of recommended sites. There are three types of functionality that can be accessed from the bottom bar of the app: “Explore”, “Search” and “Types of Places.”
“Explore” is the most basic functionality of Loogares, as is used by our location to give us recommendations. Once here we can choose to see the recommendations as a list or map form, to know exactly how far we are from each. We also offer a navigation option. We can also apply filters through the top bar to go to other locations that are farther away from where we are. Finally, we can map the functionality of drag to a certain point in the city and ask the app to find places there.
The option “Search” is also quite simple, if we know the name of a place we can enter it and access the “profile” of the venue in Loogares. Finally, in “Types of Places,” we can make a selection of different places, such as restaurants, bars, cafes, deliveries, dance halls, hotels and clothing stores.
Each location has a profile, accompanied by a photograph of the place, its exact address and phone number. In terms of functionality for users, we provide a ranking of 1 to 5 stars, as well as leave comments and recommendations. It also has a price range of how much it can cost to eat or shop there, but in Argentina, at least not yet-oiled enough doubt to buy out 3,000 pies Argentine pesos, as I sometimes indicated. One of the most interesting when you’re using an iPhone is the ability to directly call the local profile and entering the dialing button “Call”.
As users grow, Loogares will become a really useful app. For now have a well-cured catalog locations, works well and quickly, and is an efficient implementation of recommendations. If you are in Argentina or Chile, you can download for free from the App Store .Tags: IOS, iPad, iPhone, Loogares
