YaSabe Unveils Location-Aware Android Application for U.S. Hispanics
HERNDON, VA., November 15, 2011 — YaSabe, the leader in Hispanic local search, today unveiled a new mobile Android application specifically designed for U.S. Hispanics. Now available for free download in the Android Marketplace, the new bilingual local search application helps users find local businesses and discover their options nearby — all based on their location. Users can search and browse in Spanish or English and change the distance that they want to look to find out what’s available around them.
“YaSabe’s new mobile phone application is a first-of-its-kind”, said Fernando Fernandez, Director of Technology for YaSabe. “Wherever you are, it is always helpful to know what’s around you. With the new Android application from YaSabe, now you know!”
Hungry? No matter where you are, the YaSabe mobile application lets you know what kinds of restaurants are nearby. You can discover if there are coffee shops or parking lots nearby and find the closest gas stations and ATMs. The new YaSabe application provides phone-numbers and other information about the businesses nearby and directions to help you get there. For people that want help to selecting the right local business, the built-in Ayudame feature lets users ask YaSabe for help – right from their mobile device.
The YaSabe Android application is available for download at www.yasabe.com and from the Android Marketplace. YaSabe will release similar next-generation mobile applications for the iPhone and for Windows Phone 7 in the near future.
YaSabe provides mobile and local search for U.S. Hispanics, offering unique bilingual content and innovative technology to help consumers search and browse for local businesses from mobile devices and from their PCs. The company also provides a human-powered social concierge service for Hispanics called Ayudame where consumers can ask YaSabe’s experts and others for help in finding the right local business. Launched in 2010, YaSabe has already provided results for millions of queries from Hispanics searching online for local businesses at YaSabe.com and from Google, Bing and other Hispanic websites like PaginasAmarillas.com and holaciudad. YaSabe sells subscription-based advertising products to local businesses and national brands that want to reach Hispanic consumers who are searching online. Ya Sabe was awarded the Top Hispanic Digital Media Innovation of 2011 at Portada’s 5th Annual Hispanic Digital and Print Media Conference
