Apps that do everything from picking the wine to paying the check

Apps that do everything from picking the wine to paying the check | Web Design & Development | Scoop.it

The leading use of dining apps, by far, is finding a spot to eat. But these apps can also recommend a wine to go with your meal, tell you the nutritional value of your dinner, and help split the check when dining in a group.


Many foodies start with the free Yelp YELP -1.95% app, which compiles restaurant reviews from users. If you're really hungry, Yelp's "Nearby" feature, which works with GPS, will reveal the best-liked restaurants close to you. Or use the free TruxMap app, by developer F.I. Pardo, available in many big cities, to see which food trucks are parked nearby. For more-personalized recommendations, try Alfred—a clever app from Google Inc. GOOG -1.26% that gradually learns about your tastes by asking about your favorite (and least favorite) dining spots. Alfred, free for Apple and Android devices, offers local recommendations based on your answers.

5 Ways to Make Mobile Apps Work for Marketing

5 Ways to Make Mobile Apps Work for Marketing | Web Design & Development | Scoop.it

There’s no longer any debate about the importance of mobile marketing, but when it comes to mobile apps, many companies still struggle with why and how to commit to the effort. Like the early 2000s when businesses believed they should have a website but couldn’t articulate why, the start of this decade is characterized by marketers who decide to invest in mobile apps without a clear understanding of what they want those apps to achieve.


Gaining insight into how mobile apps can best be used for marketing is critical. By 2016, ABI Research predicts U.S. consumers will have downloaded 44 billion mobile apps, which means the channel is too big to ignore. But there are also very specific advantages that mobile apps have over other marketing channels. By playing to those strengths, companies can fill in strategic communication gaps and create new marketing opportunities.
