AND ENTERTAINMENT OPTIONS
iOS Users Now Able to Enjoy Ease of Picksie “On the Go” with New Mobile App providing Consumers with Most Up-to-Date, Customizable Entertainment and Dining Information
Picksie , a unique new location-based discovery service, announced today the launch of their mobile application in the App Store, providing iOS device owners with immediate access to personalized dining and entertainment options based on current location, previous preference, weather conditions and more. Picksie currently covers 900 cities/towns within the New York City/New Jersey and San Francisco metro area with additional markets slated to debut later this year.
Developed as the next generation of location-based discovery services, the Picksie mobile app enables individuals to instantly discover a wealth of entertainment and dining options whenever and wherever they choose. Picksie applies a user’s profile, past ratings, searches and reviews, as well as current day, time and weather, to recommend events, activities and places of interest – including restaurants, cafes, bars and cinemas. By creating a Picksie profile, users save time deciding what to do and receive instant recommendations that match their unique likes based on their current location.
Picksie filters and removes irrelevant choices upfront, helping users simplify their decision-making process based on time of day, day of week and weather.
App users can narrow down options even further using the collective opinions of thousands of online review sites worldwide – all without ever having to leave the Picksie app. The more frequently the user uses Picksie, the “smarter” the service becomes, customizing its recommendations over time to best fit unique individual preferences ranging from vegetarian diets to kid-friendly activities to roof-top bars and more.
“We are thrilled to introduce Picksie to the Apple app store as this marks a crucial step in providing Picksie users with relevant entertainment suggestions when they want it and when they need it,” says Ajay Mohan, CEO, Picksie. “With Picksie now available on all iOS devices, users can enjoy smart entertainment recommendations at their fingertips. The more Picksie is used, the more intuitive it will become at generating recommendations, making it an app that thrives on a mobile device.”
Picksie was founded by Ishi Systems, a product development firm delivering end-to-end technology solutions for enterprises as well as startups. Ishi has been developing enterprise, security and mobile solutions for its customers globally since 1994.
