Introducing Nokia Nearby, a hyper-local search for emerging marketsTue, 2011-08-23 10:50
Nokia Nearby is a hyper-local search application which you can use to look for information about places and listings near you and also share this information with any of your contacts. While this app works on Series40, S60, and Symbian devices, it is targeted primarily towards emerging markets with a high emphasis on Series40 devices, including those that don't have Nokia Maps or GPS on them.
With Nokia Nearby you can discover places & listings like restaurants, movie theaters, and malls and get details about the places that interest you and contact them from within the app.
- Discover & access info on places & listings around your location
- Search for location specific information within your vicinity
- Share place information with friends via SMS
- Send the entire app to friends via Bluetooth
- Call the listing from within the app
In this beta pilot, our goal is to understand the usability of this service. We would like to understand the usefulness of the service as well as get your thoughts on what features you think could be a part of such a service in the future.
