Google App

 

Google continued its recent trend of iOS app releases on Wednesday by introducing Google Places for iPhone and iPod touch.

Google Places is an app for discovering new places around you,
rating your experiences, and sharing it all with friends. It looks like
Google tore its place discovery feature out of Google Maps and sprinkled
in some social elements in order to take on the likes of Yelp, Gowalla,
Foursquare, and others.

The app offers nine icon slots of customizable, quick-access search
categories such as “restaurants,” “coffee,” and “attractions.” Google
urges users to swap in their favorite types of destinations to make it
easier to find the right spot while on-the-go.

You can also visit google.com/hotpot
in a desktop browser to use some of Google Places’s features, such as
adding friends and rating places you’ve been to. This helps
Hotpot—Google’s name for its new personalized recommendation engine—to
provide better results based not just on where you go, but the places
your friends visit as well.

After slowing down its iOS releases following the Google Voice app removal
episode, Google’s gone on a bit of an App Store stocking spree lately. Last November it released its official Google Voice app and updated Google Docs to be editable on iPhone and iPad, then released an official app for Google Latitude, its location-based social network, in December.

Like the rest of Google’s consumer products, Google Places is free.
It requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or later.

  7. KeCj2T Great blog post.Really thank you! Cool.

  8. I guess My business is just a strong idiot… Because I believe there are many 18, 19, and etc driving stoned, drunk, on pharmaceutical drug, and all kinds of other things that can do quite a few on people. We are discussing medical weed… Let’s take a poll of your kids within 10-12 along with college which can be using medications prescribed to people who add/ADHD illegally… We will not be a perfect society, but were supposedly humane… Medical marijuana is supporting the ill are now living a additional humane way. I agreed together with you! But I actually choose the smell of a fresh wintertime day. The style of day you rise (as well as knowing this has been snowing through the night) to understand that that snowstorm is definitely finally around and also been replaced using a perfect glowing blue sky and by the bright sunshine. During those times, I just simply forget it’s winter along with open just about every window entrance and allow the nice breeze enters. It can make me smile by thinking from it. Rolling down the house windows and blasting music when it’s finally nice out.

    great site
    I ENJOY this so very, very significantly. I really like my kitten, she knows how to make me come to feel better… I believe that is and so creepy. It happens a great deal between myself and my supporter. He’d telephone me then make a move else and also say he will call me earlier I’d ignore it next, i would hiring workers rather than about just what he said and after that BAM! Phone rings! this collection is rather effective which i was hunt for.

  9. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
