Free Bizzy App Puts Local Business Discovery Engine in Your Pocket
Bizzy (http://www.bizzy.com), a community of like-minded shoppers and diners discovering great local businesses, today announced the availability of the Bizzy 2.0 app for iPhone and iPod touch. The free Bizzy mobile app makes it easy to discover new businesses based on available local deals or events near you and connect with your favorite local businesses to receive updates on timely specials, events and information.
“The hyper mobile and connected customer of today doesn’t clip ads or print promotions received via email anymore,” said Gadi Shamia, President and General Manager of Bizzy. “Bizzy aims to provide you with an accessible discovery engine – wherever you are and when you want it – so you can find a new lunch hot spot or discover special offers at a nearby boutique, whether you’re sitting at your desk or on the go with your iPhone.”
On Bizzy’s iPhone app anyone can access the “What’s Happening” list where they can browse and discover promotions at the local businesses in their area. View “What’s Happening” on a map by turning the device in landscape view, where pins point out the locations of nearby special offers. The app also provides users the option to filter the types of offers they see by selecting categories such as Shopping, Beauty & Spas, Fashion and Restaurants. The app features a calendar, the option to search for your favorite business and enables sharing via Twitter and Facebook so users can share what they found with their friends.
Existing Bizzy users can sign in or new users can sign up right from the app using their Facebook login. Bizzy members can create a customized list of their favorite local businesses called their Bizzy List so they get updates only from the businesses they love. Once connected, Bizzy provides an easy way to discover additional local businesses by learning from the experiences of friends or people with similar tastes. From the home screen on the app users can navigate to send messages, access saved items in the clipbook and browse the business directory.
