Seymour is an app that we heard of a while ago but it was released in Marketplace without a splash (possibly because the release date is the app approval date, not the availability date). Anyway, this app has a ton of potential, includes a trial mode ($3 to buy) and has an above average 4.5 stars with very positive comments. I’ll let the dev explain it themselves:
Hi, I’m Seymour, your very own personal concierge!
I’ll help you find places that match your tastes in food, drink, and fun. As you teach me what you like, I create Taste Cards to remember your interests. Whenever you’re on the go, pick or create a Taste Card and I’ll give you recommendations tailored to your personal tastes. I’ve also read a ton of reviews on local places, and I’ll show you the summary of what’s good and what’s bad about any place that I know, to save you time and help you make decisions.
You can keep refining your Taste Cards by telling me how you like my suggestions. The more you interact with me, the better I get at finding you your next favorite cafe, the perfect burger, or anything else you’re looking for. Relax and enjoy yourself – I’ll do the searching and planning for you!
+ Real-time Location-based personalized recommendations
+ Narrow your searches by dishes served, types of cuisine, price, ambiance, neighborhood, and more!
+ Find places that match your tastes by specifically asking for a place "similar to…"
+ Quickly see what’s good and what’s bad about places without reading long reviews!
+ Automatically saves your interests as Taste Cards, for better and faster future recommendations
+ Interact with suggestions with a thumbs up or down to help Seymour learn what you like
+ Look up address, directions, and contact information for thousands of businesses
+ Share your suggestions with your friends in your contacts, or save a place for later by e-mailing the details to yourself
…a lot more is in the works (Facebook integration, other types of content, etc…).
The description makes me think tis has a ton of potential…the reviews confirm that it’s the real deal.
