Back again for another update. Sorry for the absence, the team has been focusing on the new release. InfoSpace Find It! V1.4 is available for download via the normal download site. OTA: InfoSpace Find It! for BlackBerry
Here is a quick summary of some of the new features. First and foremost, I wanted to let you know we heard you loud and clear about the upgrade notifications last time around. Moving forward we have a link directly to the download page when you accept the new download. Since this is the first client with this feature, you will get the benefit next upgrade. Notifications for existing users will happen by Friday, of you are impatient, feel free to download it. Ratings
We now have ratings for some businesses exposed. Not all businesses have ratings, but these are ratings from users of multiple sources. (not just InfoSpace). If we have a rating, you will see it in the business listing now. This is fantastic to get a baseline of how good (or bad) a business is. Wi-Fi Hotspots
You can now browse through categories for Wi-Fi Hotspots. Many of you are out and about on a regular basis in need of connectivity. This makes it a little easier. Copy Business to Clipboard
Lookup a business details page and bring up your context menu. You now see an option to copy the business to the clipboard. This is great for sending a friend the details of where you want to meet them. Copy Directions to Clipboard
To go along with the afore mentioned COPY BUSINESS TO CLIPBOARD, we also now have COPY DIRECTIONS TO CLIPBOARD. If you look up directions for a business and go to either the step by step or ALL directions, you can copy those to the clipboard as well. Now not only can you tell people what business you are at, but how to get there. Directions Improvements
If you like to use the step by step directions (and many of you rave about it), you will be happy to see the improvement we made this time around. Now segment maps are on by default, and each step of the segment map is pre-loaded so they are available on your handset faster.
Try it out...
- get directions to a location
- choose #2 (turn by turn)
You will see great improvements here. View 5 on Map
Now if you get a listing of businesses and choose "view 5 on map", you will notice the layout is a little easier to follow. Just a slight UI tweak to help you out.
