Imagine yourself walking down the street and all of a sudden you get an alert on your phone of a new great restaurant in the neighborhood.
So far this type of information have only been available when you do a local search, check one of the many social media accounts you might have, email newsletter, etc…
Now, DailyCandy is trying to change that. Last Thursday, the company introduced a new application for the mobile phone, called DailyCandy Stylish Alerts.
The application will keep track of its users’ location. If you are close to one of the DailyCandy hand-picked restaurants, spa, or boutique, you will get an alert on your phone with information about the local happening.
“Instead of physically taking the device out of my pocket and checking into a location, this is taking advantage of passively knowing a user’s location and passing down relevant information,” said Mr. Rochlin, the chief executive of Xtify, the New York-based geo-notification company powering the DailyCandy application..
For now the application is only available on Android devices and New York City. But the company plans to introduce the application on other platforms, including the iPhone.
