SPINDLE LAUNCHES IN NEW YORK CITY
New York City is undeniably a special place. I miss it every day, and sometimes I can’t believe I moved away. If you live there, the city is a dynamic part of your life and identity whether you’re a born-and-raised New Yorker or a recent transplant. If you’re visiting, you know that there is so much to explore beyond the typical tourist destinations. There is always something to be discovered, and few other places in the world offer such a constant flow of diverse, new experiences to residents and visitors alike.
HELLO, NEW YORK
It’s hard to keep up with the great things happening at New York’s wide array of establishments. Today, Spindle is launching in NYC to help with that. Restaurants, bars, shops, galleries, parks, and community organizations are posting information to social networks — useful information you would care about if it reached you in the right time and place. Spindle sifts through the stream of posts from all these places and shows you the most interesting, timely things. So what you see in the afternoon during a hectic week (e.g. happy hours, gym classes, dinner specials) will be different from what you see in the morning on a quiet Saturday (e.g. brunch, community events, weekend nightlife). The Spindle experience changes when what’s happening around you changes.
It’s a big challenge. In New York City alone, we’re daily analyzing over 50,000 posts from businesses and almost 320,000 posts mentioning those businesses. In the new version of Spindle launching today, you can help us by reporting problems through the app. If you’re browsing a list of results and see one that doesn’t belong, let us know. If the information we have for a place is inaccurate or the place is miscategorized, it only takes a few taps to let us know. Providing this feedback will help us improve the Spindle experience in your area.
I am thrilled that Spindle is launching in New York. It’s a vibrant city with something for everyone, and Spindle is the perfect way to tune in, learn what’s happening, and join in. I would have loved an app like this when I lived in the city (suburbs, we’re coming soon). We hope you’ll try it out and find it useful; please let us know what you think.
