I’ve never heard of Roamz but then again I think it would be rather impossible to keep up with every app that hits the marketplace these days… Roamz is a location based mobile app that helps users find up to date information about what’s happening in their area and best of all it’s free!
Roamz, a Australia-based start-up, is excited to announce today the release of the much-anticipated Android version of its location-based mobile app, which helps users discover the world around them in real-time. By merging local content, social media and mobile technology, Roamz gives its members up-to-date information about what is happening in their area including user reviews of restaurants, pubs, festivals, events and places – for free, and all at the touch of a button.
This release of Roamz offers all the benefits of Roamz 2.0, along with a unique Android flavor. Through intelligent technology, Roamz curates recent and interesting content from social networks like Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This smart curation, along with images and posts contributed by the Roamz community, allows users to use this App to discover local hot spots and hidden gems alike. New users can use Roamz to discover what locals are talking about whether it be interesting nearby places, events or activities. All of the content displayed in Roamz is publicly shared content and a user doesn’t have to ‘check-in’ in order to use the App.
Jonathan Barouch, Founder and CEO of Roamz, said “We are thrilled to be able to welcome the Android community to Roamz. We have created a unique product that gives people real-time, local insight into what is going on around them and we think that Android users will love it.”
While some apps only realise their potential when the user base in any particular geography hits critical mass, Roamz is immediately populated with up to date information no matter where you are. By pulling information about great things to do and see, from some of the world’s leading social platforms and apps, no matter whether you are in Sydney, New York or Paris.
Since the launch of Roamz 2.0 in March, the app received more than 120,000 downloads and has served more than six million recommendations to its community worldwide.
“It’s been incredible to watch our community grow over the past six months, and every day we see people discovering their local neighbourhoods and sharing their finds not only on our platforms, but across Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare.We’re hearing about how useful it is to users not just at home, but when they travel – and we’re so excited to now offer this kind of personalised discovery to a whole new audience.
Roamz for Android is free, and available now through Google Play.
